Staying home and the news has me feeling a little down- so I’m trying to focus on all of the things that bring me joy. Today I made a list of all the things that make me happy- and I’m sharing them with you!
In the words of Maria Von Trapp….These are a few of my favorite things:
Yellow…Bright like sunshine.
Country music…absolute favorite. My favorite singer is Kenny Chesney- my favorite song is Anything But Mine.
Gossip Girl…Blair is an icon.
Elephants…I love them so much that I even have an elephant Tiffany bracelet with my birthstone, the Peridot.
Summer…Give me days by the ocean, salty air, and sunshine.
Tuesdays With Morrie…the only lesson you need about what is important in life.
Hyacinths…they smell like spring.
Notting Hill…The most romantic storyline featuring Hugh Grant.
Fresh bruschetta…Tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, french bread, olive oil, salt and pepper = heaven.
John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”…the verse that always grounds me and reminds me of the importance of Jesus.
Thanksgiving…I love everyone gathered around the table (anndd mashed potatoes!). I think Thanksgiving is my favorite because it’s so warm and cozy. Good food, family, and friends all together just celebrating the gifts we are given.
Eggs benedict…No explanation needed. Pair it with grits and a biscuit, please.
God of the Sparrow…This is the hymn that taught me how to read! I joined the church choir when I was a little girl and couldn’t read yet. This hymn talks about God’s love for all His creatures, and it brings back happy memories from my childhood.
