Hello honey! I am so glad you stopped by today! My name is Angela and I live in South Alabama with my sweet pup, Finn. I am a graduate of the University of Alabama and a communications/public relations professional in my day-to-day life.

I started Choose Joy after having it on my heart for many years. I am passionate about writing but also interested in fashion, beauty, health, home decor, plants, graphic design to name a few… But I didn’t want to join the oversaturated market of just sharing pics of my #OOTD. I am intuitive and feeling by nature, so I wanted to incorporate something more to my posts. I definitely didn’t come here to gain a bunch of followers. Often sharing my thoughts benefits my mind and spirit, but it fulfills me to think my words may uplift someone else.

The name you ask? My full name is Angela Joy and I’ve been called AJ for as long as I can remember. I was named after my grandmother, Joy Ann- a namesake I am honored to have. My other grandmother, Dorothy, is who started calling me AJ. As I grew older I realized the significance of my name and what joy really meant. Choosing to live an abundantly joyful life has altered how I view the world and the everyday trials that come my way. I couldn’t be more proud to name my brand after something I’m so proud of and passionate about.

Follow along here to see my journey and to share about yours! Thank you for being here with me.

I hope the content here inspires and encourages you to seek joy, choose joy, and share joy.
