Warm Woolen Mitten and Crisp Apple Strudels...
Comforting, cool, inviting, that's what I think of when I think of Fall. I don't think heat, humidity, and hurricane season and yet, I wouldn't give it up for the world! Apples are in season, Halloween has a firm grasp on the shelves in our stores, and all the kiddies are back in school. That's how I know it's Fall in Florida!
Lately, I feel like my home probably felt during hurricane Charley, a bit battered. The news is not peppy, the daily grind hasn't stopped, and I feel like I'm in an eternal game of whack-a-mole when life's little problems crop up. It's times like these I need to take a step back, and re-realize how incredible everything is! So I take a moment to remember my favorite things!
So Here Are Some of MY Favorite Things
The smell of freshly cut grass
Puppies! The fluffier the better!
The pack of ibises that breakfast on my lawn daily
Smiles and replies from my fellow morning walkers!
Totally drool-worthy Donut King Donuts
Cranking the A/C in my car on a hot day!
Enjoying a DnD campaign with my family made by my son
Reading late into the night because I can't put the book down and I'm still not sure I'll regret it!
An empty inbox... I did it once, I can do it again!
Unexpectedly being behind a gorgeous classic car while in traffic
ICE. WATER. 'Nuff said.
Listening to my favorite history podcasts because I'm a nerd
Realizing I need to pick up something "real quick" and I am 10 minutes away from several options
My now very full spice cabinet, dedicated to making our food fun!
Tubing down cool springs on blistering summer days
Actually seeing a gator in my neighborhood!
Wild dinner conversations with my family
The walk-in closet that has turned into Florida home storage
Access to pools and oceans all year round
My comfy headset that I finally found after so many made my ears sore
The pen where the ink flows perfectly and makes my atrocious handwriting looks nice
Waking up to the literal singing of birds (mourning doves are my favorite)
Being able to borrow audio book online through my library
Flossing after eating popcorn... oh man, it's soo satisfying.
My graying hairs! I earned them fair and square! :)
Thanks for being a part of...
