10 of My Favorite Things

Favorites are hard for me. But, since Hilary tagged me (first time, wahoo!), I thought I'd give it a shot. Here we go.

1. Being Jeffy's Mommy
Yes, it's cliche', but it's true. I love being a mommy, specifcally to Jeffy. He's gotten attached lately and it's so cute. I can tell that he loves me and his daddy and that's the best feeling in the world. When he smiles, laughs, does something new, I just get this overwhelming feeling of love and awe. It's the best.

2. Reading
I love to read. I'll read just about anything, except horror and romance novels. I appreciate good writing just as much as a good story. Maybe someday I'll try my hand at writing, but for now, I just enjoy others' efforts.

3. Paper and Wood Crafts
I love scrapbooking paper, but not necessarily scrapbooking. Sometimes the amount of work (and money) that goes into displaying one picture seems kind of overdone to me. But, I've been introduced to digital scrapbooking, which seems pretty cool. I love making other stuff with paper-- announcements, invitations, cards, journals, and things like that. I also love wood crafts--pictures, boxes, frames, etc.

4. Yummy Food
This could be its own category. I love the usuals, like ice cream, but I also love meat. My favorite pizza is meat lovers. When I have a craving, it's for a burger or something, rather than something sweet. Yum, I just love food!

5. Dusk in the West
One of the best things about living in the west is the sunsets. I absolutely love them. Right when the sun is getting close to setting, I love going outside and just . . . being. I love sitting outside and pondering, dreaming, and imagining all kinds of things during dusk. It's super relaxing.

6. Boxes
I collect boxes. My favorites are pretty wooden ones. I prefer them to be bare inside, not meant for jewelry or anything. I have a few favorite ones. My mother-in-law gave me a beautiful wooden square one for my wedding, and I have another beautiful one from somewhere. I like taking old boxes and re-doing them to make them pretty.

7. Music
I come from a musical family, and the love of music is in my blood. There is nothing that can calm the soul or motivate the spirit like music. I love playing it and I love listening to it.

8. Being Productive
I feel best when I've accomplished something. Even if it's as mundane as getting the laundry done. Of course, it may take a litle while to get motivated enough to start! :)

9. Sisters
I have six sisters and I love it. I'm the oldest, and as each comes out to college, I get to be closer to them and love their company. I'm so glad to have three so close to me now and I hope we get to hang out a lot. (I like my brothers too, just for the record.)

10. Generally Pretty Things
I like pretty, feminine things. Someday when I have a house of my own, I hope to fill it with pretty things. I'm not a fan of super sleek modern things. I prefer old-style feminine pretty.
