Love List

I Love….

  • Getting “just because” phone calls during the day from my husband.
  • Looking at caller id and seeing that my best friend is calling me.
  • Hearing my girls play, argue, and then work out their problems.  It makes me feel like they love one another enough to “make up”.
  • Walking into church…..on time.
  • An everything bagel and skinny latte from Panera.
  • A warm fire in my family room.
  • A good pen.
  • A kitchen that is clean and smells like citrus.
  • A tight hug that only my mother can give.
  • My sister’s sweet voice and gentleness.
  • My youngest daughter’s “from the belly” laugh.
  • Cheeseburgers from Booches.
  • My trips with my blogger friends. They have literally saved my sanity during the last year. I don’t know what I’d do without them.
  • My toes in the sand at the beach.
  • A bra that fits.
  • Seeing my girls grow into their own personalities and embracing all the quirks rather than trying to change them.
  • The sound of tires on gravel.
  • The fact that God never gave up on me, even though there were times I was so very far from Him.
  • The feeling of working hard and finishing something I never thought I could do.
  • Dancing to 80’s music. “Brick House” will get me on the dance floor every.single.time.
  • Baking yummy desserts.
  • Seeing my oldest daughter’s drawings. She absolutely blows me away with her artistic ability.
  • The smell of my husband when he first gets out of the shower.
  • Massages, facials, and pedicures. These have to be in heaven. I’m convinced.
  • Crescent rolls baked with string cheese in the middle.
  • An uninterrupted bath.
  • Doing something genuinely unselfish for someone without any expectations.
  • A clean car.

I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving!


  1. I love this list! I laughed out loud at "A bra that fits" I take that for granted! Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.

  2. This is a great list and a good idea for a blog post!

  3. You are so funny and are always posting things that make me say "me too!!" I think we are very similar. Glad you had a thankful thanksgiving.
