A Few of My Favorite Things

Tonight as I drove home from rehearsal, breathing in the smell of rain through the open car window and admiring the full moon reflecting it's light on the world below, I took an extra moment to appreciate those lovely things (like the rain and the moon) that we so often forget in the hum-drum of our daily doings. I came home from a long and satisfying rehearsal today, no where near ready to go to bed, and it is in the late hours of the night when the house finally gets quiet that I begin to think some more about the tiniest things in life that make us happy. I am a lover of all things beautiful, and this is such a beautiful life. Here are some of the things that make me smile. (Granted, it's only a small, small handful)

* Spoonfuls of peanut butter and chocolate chips with a glass of milk
* Inspiring Quotes
* Dancing
* Sitting on the lawn with friends on a late summer night until the sprinklers surprisingly turn on
* Love
* Stepping outside to smell the rain
* The color yellow
* Hugs
* Getting dolled up for a special occasion
* Missionaries :)
* Pictures and Photography
* Lunchables
* Acoustic music
* Holding a tiny baby
* Watching the sweet old couple on the dance floor, swaying to a song and falling in love with each other all over again
* The smell of Brown Sugar and Fig
* Getting a new haircut
* Recieving a letter in the mail
* Traveling
* Sharing a blanket
* Roasting marshmallows at a campfire
* Chicken Noodle Soup
* Laughing until your stomach hurts
* Summer reading on the front porch
* Driving past the temple
* Making a new friend
* Star-gazing
* Dew on the grass in the morning
* Piano music
* Walking barefoot outside
* Singing in the car
* Ice cream
* Holding hands
* Driving in the car with the windows rolled down.
* Warm cookies fresh out of the oven

    LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVEEEEEEEEE seeing this. It is one of the most special things to witness in the world, I think. I even mentioned it in my "beauty" blog post, if I remember correctly... ;)
