So...Mary has inspired us all to make a list of our favorite things. Melin did it too....check them out! Here are some of mine: (no particular order)

  • Eli's sweet smell when he is sleeping
  • Fall weather...isn't it divine?
  • Yummy mashed potatoes...creamy yet some lumps
  • Lee's hands and arms
  • Clean sheets right out of the dryer
  • Reading a good book....outside, in the bed, on the couch, anywhere!
  • Falling asleep with a book...can you tell I like to read?
  • Swinging...wish I had a new playset! :)
  • Cooking dinner for my family
  • Laughing with my girlfriends
  • Hearing my brother's voice
  • Baby kicks in the belly...already miss it!
  • Eli's little noises when he is sleeping
