  1. Ah ah ah! I love the “boring school concerts,” it’s one of my favorite too!
    Many things on my list too. It’s nice to write one time to time, so we can realize all the good and enjoyable things that are happening in our life.
    You made me travel and laugh, two things that are on the top of my list with “Having a good friend!”


  2. Well, right there on my list would be those hugs, cards and giggles from/with my kids, watching them play, catching up for unaccountable hours with my best friend. Lush- I don’t know where I would be without my charcoal scrub, Vanilla De- lite lotion and Sex bomb bath fizz 🙂 The first rain and its cleansing smell – we in California do periodical rain dances because we need it. Traveling to places I know nothing about and trying to learn their language. Standing at the Uffizi in front of Botticelli’s Venus and observing Michelangelo’s David in tears.
    Receiving letters and writing them, books, books and more books with sea salt and almond Dark chocolate. Listening to Sam Shepard or Ed Shearan. Yes to Ina Garten, fleece pajamas, handbags um and shoes too. Oh my list is endless. Such a great post. You made me smile.
