These are a few of my favorite things...

(The title is even more fun if you sing it!)

My little boy (and he's so little here it pangs my heart!) trying out new things even if they're uncomfortable and a bit confusing.

My little boy again, trying new things when he's unsure. He's brave in so many ways, but joining the swim team at barely five years of age was huge.

Me trying new things, even when they're waaay outside my comfort zone. This caterpillar bracelet on square stitch is so pretty..but an inch too large to wear. Now it adorns the neck of a vase. I made this years ago, at the beach.

My VW bug. It's not magenta (yet) but it has hearts and flowers on the back. One of Zack's teachers called it "the coolest car on campus".

Writing. My brain stalls a lot right now, but writing down small vignettes helps me remember later how to put things together.

Rick. We will have been married fifteen years October 28th.  He's put new meaning into the vows "in sickness and in health."

The road (or river) less traveled. You miss a lot of you don't look around once in a while.

Fun colors in my hair. It's like painting a wall in your house. You can be in complete awe at how it looks, or head back to the store to buy a different color and start over, muttering, "I'll never do THAT again!"

Mail day, when a package arrives. Isn't that the coolest?

I'll do more posts like this more often. It's fun to dig through old photos and see what's there.

What are a few of YOUR favorite things?


  1. Certainly with you on the fun colors in the hair. Nice post!

  2. Wonderful post.


  3. This post made me smile! Nice.

  4. Congratulations on nearly 15 years of marriage!

  5. I am enjoyng your post and Zack is still so adorable and brave. Using the beaded bracelet as adornment on a vase is brilliant because you can enjoy it every day. Fifteen years of marriage is quite the accomplishment. Congratulations Dear.

    Oh, my gosh, Zack WAS a little boy then! Love your favorite things. Cool post.

  7. Such a sweet list... my own list also include real mail and packages, and pictures of my boys when they were young. Photos taken from the back are some of my favorites!
