All the young bloggers -- and the blogging community makes me feel very old -- are doing lists of their favorite things.
There's no such thing as too old to have favorite things. :)
My current favorites:
Sweaty runs followed by a long shower
Sunday mornings with no schedule, just snuggling with baby girl and Mr Right
Vanilla cupcakes from Cupcake ala Mode or Babycakes (no others, not worth the calories)
Fantasy travel planning
Fantasy interior design (no budgets in my fantasies)
recorded episodes of Divine Design
anything in New York
books, books, books
shopping for books
style and home magazines
Bukeka Shoals singing at church
pasta my husband makes
Anthropologie, Z Gallerie, Prydes, Nordstrom, "With a French Accent"
brunch (or anything) at Blue Stem
Christopher Elbow chocolates
beautiful hand writing
notecards and stationary
my iPod shuffle
mocha, tea or anything warm in a mug on a chilly day
stories of inspirational entrepreuners
completing a project that I created
writing letters (or long personal emails)
strategic thinking, esp to boost business or participation
Is my list too long? I'm certainly not done. Has to be getting boring though.
My very favorite of all my favorite things:
when baby girl plants her slobbery, open mouth on my face and exclaims "mmmmm-uh!"
