Sometimes all I need to lift my spirits is to think of some of my favorite things and I’m magically transported to my HAPPY PLACE!!
Smell of a freshly cut lawn
Music… loud music
Hot, hot, hot bubble baths
Inspiring quotes… especially on magnets or canvas or… anything really!
Animated kiddie movies
Feeling soft, cool sand under my toes
Pumpkin Spice Latte (Soy milk, only 1 pump syrup and no whip cream)
Traveling – anyplace
Sun on my face on a cool spring day
Smell of wet cornfields (I know weird, but I grew up in the country)
Fleece pj pants and fuzzy socks on a cold winter night
Snow cone… Cherry Limeade – YUM!
Perfect pink/cranberry lip color
My children… though they are only a figment of my imagination right now!
Spiced Apple Cider
Smell of freshly washed laundry
Warm herbal tea
Singing at the top of my lungs
Big bear hugs
Sound of a whisper fan while napping
Public Speaking (most fear it more than death, but I LOVE IT!!)
Milk Chocolate… Hershey’s and Lindor
Smell of a baby
Relaxing visits to the country
My sister **love her immensely!!**
Shel Silverstein poems
Driving with the windows down
Flavor-Ice popsicles… red, purple and green
My parent’s unwavering belief in me **xoxo!!**
Jelly Belly jelly beans… only fruit bowl or sour mixes – Cherry and Cotton Candy are FAVs
Heart shaped things
Coca-Cola… but only a sip!
Spending quality time with friends and family
In the arms of my husband… though he too is only a figment of my imagination right now! LOL!!
Rock candy… any color except blue
Reflexology… best foot massage, E-V-E-R!
Smell of salt water
Movies at the theatre
Floating in a pool
Lefse (Norwegian flatbread… my FAV food in the world!!)
Perfect mascara… no smudges or flakes
Clear ocean water
Wine (or as my friends call it… wyyynnnneeeee)
Great hair days
Waterfalls and fountains
Urban city streets
NYC at Christmas-time
Pink & Gray color-combo
Slight, cool breeze on a warm summer day
Shiny, sparkly things
My niece’s sweet face
Giving gifts… especially for no particular reason
Putting on clothes straight out of the hot dryer
Pedicures and pretty toenails
Sparklers and Fireworks
Smell of chlorine
Having my hair washed at a salon
Sleeping in on a rainy day
Walks on the beach
Well, this is everything I can think of right now. I’m sure there are more. Ha!
Dust those clouds away… What are your favorite things?
