These are a few of my favorite things

(Before you're allowed to read the following list, you must sing the title of this post just like Julie Andrews did in the Sound of Music, because that's my first favorite thing!)

I realized a few days ago that there are some songs that pop into my head at random moments and others that I find myself humming only during certain activities. Hmmm... regardless, I love that I do this, it makes me laugh and when you laugh you smile... and in the words of Buddy the Elf "I just love to smile, smiling's my favorite!"

Some of my favorite things:

1) Curling up on the couch in pajamas to watch a movie with a mug of hot chocolate
2) Love, love, love the cool crisp air of fall and the brightly colored leaves
3) The smell of Nola's face
4) Warm, snuggly wool socks
5) Quilts
6) My sister
7) A good book to read in a hammock
8) Listening to rain on a screened in porch
9) Waking up excited
10) A great fitting pair of jeans
11) Jackets and bags
12) Being snowed in when there's nowhere to go

I sure am glad I made the list!
