My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things

It's so important with the crazy world today to remember all of the things that make you smile. I put together a list of my favorite things (in alphabetical order, of course).

After writing them I noticed that my trends included being warm, things that taste good, comfortable clothing, mini-adventures and yummy smells.

  • Antique Shops (flea markets, garage sales - I love a good vintage find)
  • Beautiful Views (mountains, oceans, beaches - doesn't matter)
  • Being Early (mostly so I can get the best seat - nerd alert - I know...)
  • Being Nice
  • Book Stores (specifically the small ones that smell like new books)
  • Burnt Marshmallows
  • Candles (when my house smells delicious it makes me so happy - if it smells like clean cotton, a sweet treat or fall - I'm sold)
  • Camp Fires (the ones that last all night surrounded by friends - where you clothes smell like smoke for days)
  • Chicken Noodle Soup (really any soup is okay in my book)
  • Chips and Salsa (unlimited and preferably with a margarita or two)
  • Christmas Morning
  • Cleaning (it's my stress hobby)
  • Coffee and Hot Tea (Skinny Vanilla Latte or Cold Brew and Earl Grey are my go-to)
  • Cupcakes (I like them to be so pretty it's hard to eat them - plain vanilla on vanilla - lemon raspberry is also a favorite)
  • Dancing
  • Finishing a Book
  • Fresh Cut Grass (I love the way it looks, feels, smells - I'm a sucker for the summer)
