a few of my favorite things!

It's been a tough few weeks to say the least!, I figured I need to make a list of some things I am grateful for, happy about and feel blessed by!  (in no particular order, either!  :))

  • my God and my faith...
  • our tradition of seeing the nutcracker again this seemed particuarly great today!
  • hot cocoa afterwards with friends where we watched our daughters dance like little sugar plum fairies all through starbucks!
  • a roaring fire, sitting by the light of my beautifully "perfect" Christmas Tree
  • the amazing smell of my aspen candle
  • the homeade wrapping paper that my kids created
  • the elf on the shelf who continues to surprise and delight us each day!
  • that at 38 my mommy is still my mommy...even if she too confused to know right now!
  • snowflakes today...finally feels "Christmas-y"
  • my friends...simply put - they are ANGELS in my life!
  • Caramel Brulee Lattes from Starbucks - yum!
  • my comfy, cozy bed...
  • the sheer delight of seeing christmas thru my babies' eyes!
  • my church
  • that my sweet bryan is on vacation for the nest two weeks...can't wait to be together!
  • brunch with santa (tomorrow)
I think thats it for now!
