My five favorite things that money can’t buy.
- Watching my daughters show their love for one another. Don’t get me wrong, these two can fight like boxing champions. But there’s no doubt that they love one another and are best friends. When Bookworm was around 3 and Sassypants was about a year old, I was driving and noticed they were both really quiet. I looked back in the rearview mirror, thinking maybe they had fallen asleep. To my surprise, they had reached out from their car seats and were holding hands. It was such a sweet moment that I will cherish the rest of my life.
- My husband’s sense of humor. I don’t always let my true sense of humor show on my blog, because….quite frankly, it might scare you. I have a twisted sense of humor that only those closest to me get to see. My husband is the same way. We constantly crack each other up with the craziness that comes out of our mouths. He’s the only guy I ever dated that appreciates my humor and often trumps me in one-line zingers.
- Fall. I absolutely LOVE fall. I love when you start to feel that little chill in the air and need a light jacket. I love seeing the trees when they start to turn shades of red and orange. I love the first time I can wear boots and a sweater. Even though I love how carefree summer is, I really like fall’s ability to get us settled back into our routines.
- Phone calls with friends. As much as I like communicating with friends via blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and email, I still love taking the time to make a phone call to my best friends. There’s something special about hearing their voice and giggling with them. Even if it’s only 5 minutes, I love catching up and hearing what’s going on in my friends’ lives.
- Having occasional alone time. If you’re a mom, you’re probably nodding your head in agreement. As moms, we’re always taking care of our families, the house, and everything in between. My mind is often scattered between what I’m doing and what I need to do next. For my sanity, I need quiet moments. It may be taking a bath, flipping through a magazine, or taking a walk down my street. I need those moments to regroup and calm myself. However----if I am alone for more than a few hours, I want to see my babies and husband. HA!
Hope you all have a WONDERFUL weekend!
