Lists! I used to be a huge list girl growing up, but in the last half a dozen years, I seem to have given them up (sort of, but that's a whole other post!). But what a rockin' awesome way to give list making a recharge...by linking up with Stasha, from The Good Life, along with many peeps who's blogs are fun to visit!
10 Places I Love
1) Vancouver, British Columbia
One of the locales the husband & I honeymooned at. And after gallery hopping, we selected our wedding present to each other, a piece of original art.
2) Victoria, British Columbia
Yup, another stop on our honeymoon. Victoria is simply magical and we both want to revisit these beautiful cities again.
My family, our very loud kitty, hugs, smiles, laughter, and of course, creature comforts can all be found under this roof.
4) Pacific Ocean
I love an escape to the ocean, specifically any beaches from Northern California and up. I love the rugged beauty of our coast and visits to it are exquisitely peaceful and relaxing.
5) Fort Bragg & Mendocino
Same as #4, but getting even more specific. It's here that we love to travel to for our anniversaries.
6) Here, Time Crafted & online!
Simply put, this is where I get to connect with so many awesome peeps, like you! :>
Have to admit, I was quite bummed when Borders began closing their doors. There's still Barnes & Noble and a local chain of book stores to fill the need. Yes, need. Not only do I love getting lost in a story, but I love books themselves. I love the paper, the binding, the dust jackets, the typeface. All of it makes me smile. (All of it, except figuring out where else to put them in my house...I ran out of room a Long time ago!)
8) The countryside surrounding my town.
I love a country drive. My kidlets love country drives. We love riding in silence. We love chatting along our drive. We love cranking up a favorite CD, as the ground passes beneath our tires. And I love, love, love hearing my kidlets remark on how lucky we are to live somewhere so beautiful.
9) Anywhere with my Four Musketeers.
Best friends. Sisters. Trips to Disneyland without little ones. 'Nuff said.
10) In a Hug.
I'm a hugger. With Hubs, with my kidlets, with my friends. (Don't worry, if you're not a hugger, I totally get that too! :>)
Now, that felt good to be reminded of and revisit so many places my heart loves to be. Totally smile worthy! Where do love to be?
I love books! I don't hesitate to buy new ones, they are better than a manicure, a massage, or a couple of javas. And while all other links in this post are to others' blogs or my own, the bookstore link is an affiliate link.
