What I Love

One of my best friends shared this post on Facebook the other day along with a list of things she loves.

It stuck with me all through the weekend, so I’m clearing my head here. I’m not sure it makes me interesting, but it’s far more fun to focus on what I love rather than on things I hate.

I love:
family visits and continuing traditions, laughing until I cry, reading by a fire or out in the sunshine, season changes, a fresh blanket of snow, the first blossoms in spring, petrichor, the smell of a John Deere tractor, playing on or in the water, staying up late watching movies, kettle corn, afternoon naps, morning dog walks, the beauty in the details, falling asleep to a soft rain, sleeping with the windows open, the crunch of fallen leaves and thick snow, Torch Lake, Lake Michigan, the golden hour, spontaneous road trips, sunsets, sun warmed tomatoes fresh off the plant, snuggling with my husband and our little fuzzies, classic rock songs around a campfire, twinkling stars, frogs and crickets on a quiet night, hiking, jogging, kayaking, baking, singing loudly, making new friends, reconnecting with old friends, making photos…

What do you love?

Family time, hiking, mushroom hunting traditions… (too bad the only photo I took of both my parents they aren’t in focus :-/ )

Beauty in the details, petrichor, photos

Kayaking, connecting with friends

    • I just really liked the idea. I generally think of myself as a positive person, and this seemed like a good way to spread happiness in the world 🙂
      As for the focus, I am disappointed in myself, because I just didn’t look at the little screen. Oh well. Memories and all that 😉

    • You might be pleased to know that I learned that word from Doctor Who 🙂 After I published my inherently incomplete list, I wished I had added my love of a lingering campfire smell. It’s not for everyone, but I love it 🙂 Don’t ask me to choose between smoky campfire and petrichor for my next perfume. Except “petrichor” certainly sounds better.

Share your thoughts. I'd love to hear from you :)
