Who I am?

Hi! I’m Maria Tabush (also known as MJ or Majo in Spanish) I was born and raised in Guatemala City, got married and moved to Houston in 2011. Married to the most supportive husband, mom of 2 kids a 14 and a 2 year old, so far we have adopted 2 adorable crazy cats and a playful dog named Joy! I’m a graphic designer, cake decorator and photographer (phew!) I had been struggling to keep up with all my jobs  and roles, but finally stepping out of the madness, refocusing on what really matters…

I had always had a tendency to live simple, in a slow way, but our quickly evolving world sometimes drowns me to the automated, consumerist life. I am truly passionate about creating a slow and meaningful life, a cozy home and helping others to do the same.

Spoonful of Joy

I consider this blog my journal. I share the things I’ve learned so far and what I’m still learning, the things that go right and the things that didn’t work out so well. I hope you will be encouraged and inspired to pursue a better life as you follow our journey.

Whether you are searching for a helpful parenting tip, curious about minimalism and slow life, searching for a homemade comfort recipe to cook for your family, planning your next meaningful trip or celebration, I am so thankful that you stopped by and look forward to connect with you often.
