F is for Favorites

These are a few of my favorite things:
  • a warm blanket on cold toes
  • sun shining through leaves
  • the first ticklings of a new idea
  • singing really loudly in the car with my favorite people
  • a brand new bar of soap
  • felt tipped pens
  • the first bite of a warm cookie
  • the sound of birds through an open window
  • crystal blue skies
  • new leaves
  • the shuffle of my kids feet past my door in the morning
  • my puppy's grin as he runs
  • warm grass and puffy white clouds
  • a page filled with cursive
  • giant maple trees
  • a new tube of paint
  • freshly vacuumed carpet
  • sidewalk cafes
  • a hot bath after a good meal
  • Italian cream sodas
  • waking up after a deep sleep
  • driving past lit houses at night
  • patios decked with twinkling white lights
  • a window streaked with rain
  • the sound of geese flying overhead
  • crushed ice
  • a tight hug from my kids
  • listening to my girls singing in the shower
  • the tidy look of a pastry case
  • the remnant of paint on old brick walls
The world is full of my favorite things. I could never list them all.


  1. What a wonderful list! There are several things on there that I consider favorites too- the felt tip pens, the cookie, the birds, looking in the houses at night--to name a few. Looking forward to exploring your blog via the A-Z challenge!

  2. Loved your list! Some of them are my favorites as well. :)
