with Valentine's Day around the corner, and the word LOVE showcased in every retail store you walk into promoting this Pink occasion; I started to stop and think about a few things I love. So here they are.... in no particular order.... because I will type them as they come to me.
my Savior....well, because of so many reasons, but to start, how about the fact He DIED FOR ME.
the hubs...he so gets me. like, really gets me. good and bad. he loves me oh so well, and i love to love him.
my pillow.....i can cuddle it and it doesn't leave lines all over my face.
my "p" coffee cup... it reminds me of a fabulous weekend with a fabulous friend.and i love anything Anthropologie.
my blue back door.. it makes me smile, because it is unexpected.
my dryer....because it will dry clothes 50% of the time. (I'm trying hard to really love it. I thought typing it would help.)
my hallway...it's so fun.
pasta...... oh, i just love it!!!
my nail polish collection....because I get to see it on my three children all the time.
my three drama queens....because they tell us every night their favorite part of their day is piled up in our bed talking, and that reminds me of how thankful I am to get to mama them.
my car....because it is paid for and can haul a crew!
my little stone patio.....because it is a corner Tim and I escape to so often to chat.
designing........ it deepens my love and thought of others, and makes them smile, which makes me smile.
my purse...because it can hold anything & everything ,slings over my shoulder, & I don't loose my keys in it.
my church......it is truly a safe haven.
naps.... even if it's for 5 mins.
my dryer..........................................................(yeah, I'm still trying)
my kitchen......because relationships have blossomed in there.
attention to details...... because I can experience God through them.
my kitchen aid mixer.....because my life is easier with her.
crossfit......because i'm surrounded by people who encourage and want to see you succeed.
my chalkboard back splash..... it reminds me to be expressive
my neighbors......they are precious to us and bring us warm "out of the oven" pound cake.
pound cake....yes, yes, oh, I looooooooove pound cake!
magazines.....I could buy every one at the check out lane. My favorite is Country Living.
cooking...... totally passionate. I get to experiment and be creative all at once. I'm such a foodie.
my pink bible.... because I love the notes I've written in it, and it makes me chuckle that the person that gave it to me 20+ years ago put my middle name as my first name, and misspelled it as well.
entertaining....... because I love a party, and investing in people is for the now, and not for the putting off.
my right ring finger....because it's naked from a very special ring I wore 15 years with out taking off. without it, the last two years have been a constant remembrance of my grandmother. before it went missing it was an ornament I always wore. I love the thought of her. I love that the nakedness drives me to caring memories of her. she loved well.
fabric....okay, it might be more then love....it could be an obsession.
level 99 jeans......because I could literally not have to try them on, I know I'll like them. good stuff.
blogging..... because it puts things from my head and heart on paper. it allows me to record and experience again God's goodness, and faithfulness.
and last but not least..... my dryer.... because it could be worse and not dry our clothes at all.
What do you love?????
