I often get inspired by reading other blogs. Today I read a blog post by someone who listed the things she loved, in no particular order, and it was such a beautiful, touching, and funny list that it inspired me to think about the things I love--the things that make me happy.
In no particular order, I love:
My niece Brianna.
My nephew Brandon.
Sunrises and sunsets.
The smell of fresh cut grass.
Loving characters so much in a book I ache for them when bad things happen.
Knowing that if everything fell apart in my life, I'd have the most amazing support group to help me back up.
Sheldon Cooper. :)
Banana cake with cream cheese frosting.
The color purple. (Not the movie or book, although I love those, too.)
Living in Colorado.
Colorado's breathtaking beauty.
The smell of orange blossoms.
Being to-the-bone exhausted and finally being able to crawl into bed with a happy sigh.
That light bulb moment when I finally understand a concept that had eluded me before.
Music so beautiful it makes me cry.
The smell of a man wearing Curve Crush.
Roller coasters and thrill rides.
Thanks for the inspiration, Ree!
