"Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living!" - Amanda Bradley

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. ” —Alfred D. Souza

Yesterday's WOMP challenge was to list 50 things you love. While I've done this in the past I decided to tackle it again. One change I decided upon is not to keep track of my list. I didn't feel right putting a number on my loves...well it makes sense in my mind.

While I'm not going to share my complete list I will share some of it here with you...

  • my guys, my family (of course)
  • getting lost in a good book
  • napping
  • color - bright, subtle, pastel, primary...color makes the world go round
  • kitty cuddles
  • discovering and uncovering family history
  • new school supplies
  • cupcakes
  • water - the expanse of the ocean, rushing rivers, crawling creeks, water falls
  • writing it down
  • driving my brother's Jeep with the top down singing in the wind
  • having fun with my camera
  • quotes that speak to me
  • cheese
  • old family photos
  • old friends I trust and am oh-so comfortable with and nurturing our continuing friendships
  • new friends - discovering commonness and differences
  • hot coffee
  • cold lemonade and sweet tea
  • martini nights
  • laughing
  • learning
  • exploring
  • rain storms
  • being snowed in
  • trees - looking up through the branches to the sky above - never the same view twice
  • scarves, mittens and sweaters
  • inspiration - words, images...
That's it for now...a few things I love.

Happy Day my friends!
