Favorite Moments

August 27, 2014

*Reading at night right before bed
*Exploring a new city for the first time
*Laughing so hard with my friends and family members that I start to get looks from strangers
*Snuggles with Claude
*Getting snail mail
*When I find the perfect pair of shoes in my size
*Pretty much the whole season of fall
*Meeting someone new and instantly clicking with them right off the bat
*Every second spent in Savannah's historic district
*Getting a compliment on a bad day
*Finally landing after a long flight
*When the gas tank is 100% full
*Having my first daily cup of coffee
*Being able to wake up naturally instead of to an alarm clock
*Falling asleep to the soothing sound of rain
*When I'm able to pay off even a small amount on my student loans
*The first snowfall of the year
*Taking long walks with good companions (This one kinda makes me sound like an old lady...so be it!)
*When strangers smile and hold the door open for you (I always try to do this for others in return!)
*Roommate t.v. time...It has become a tradition. :)
*Stepping on the scale and finding out I lost weight (though this hasn't happened lately)
*Getting to meet up with an old friend after not seeing them for a long time
*Watching a newly released movie and then determining that it is one of my ultimate favorites
*Discovering a place so beautiful it seems unreal

 These are just some of my favorite moments.  What are yours?

  2. Such precious moments! I'm a GA girl through & through, so I definitely appreciate Savannah and other historic areas. That first cup of coffee really just makes the morning for me :)
    I love snuggling with my son & husband, and witnessing the bond that we share.

  3. Perfect fitting shoes - hard since I'm a size 5 so when it happens JOY!
    That first cup of coffee is PERFECTION
    Snail Mail is amazing :D


    Such a fun post and wonderful idea!

  4. I couldn't agree more with the finding shoes that fit. It's so hard for me to find shoes being a size 10 that I like and don't look awful.

  7. I love all of those. Mine are: facetiming with my nephew, dancing anywhere anytime, figuring out new posts for the blog, and eating really good food.

  8. You guys, I wear size 11, so I totally relate!! A lot of places don't even carry size 11 for women.

  9. I know, right? The best part of all was that it was a free stock photo that I found because of Paulina's Free Stock Photos post. I love hammocks!!!! I don't have one where I live, but at the beach house we stayed at one summer there was one, and I relaxed there every day with a book.

  10. These are wonderful fabulous moments! I love this post. It's simple, but it made me smile. It's important to remember the things that make us grateful! Reading before bed and finding the perfect shoes in the right size – yes and yes! So, so true. My list of Favorite Momentsis also very long. Too long for a comment. I’m going to make my own Favorites post and link back to you! I’ll let you know when it is done.

  11. I love and can agree with all of this list, and the very idea of a post about favorite things. :) Coffee has to be somewhere at the top on mine, also!

  13. Aww, I love this! I've recently become a fan of falling asleep to rain... it doesn't rain much in Denver usually but it has rained a lot this summer, and I'm loving it!

  14. These all sound so amazing. Listening to rain is one of my favorite things.

  15. Having a full gas tank is so satisfying. It makes you think like you can go anywhere and everywhere! And being able to wake up naturally. I'm still trying to fix my body clock so that I can wake up naturally when I need to be up.

  16. That full gas tank though... I love it a little too much.

  17. It makes me feel like I'm on top of things!

  18. Yeah, who likes to wake up with their heart pounding to a blaring beeping noise?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I find the sound of it so relaxing!

  20. Oh, that's nice that you're starting to like it now. I like when it starts to rain knowing that I'm already inside for the rest of the night. There's just something about that pitter-patter sound that I enjoy!

  21. I bet it will be even more special now that I live in Georgia since it doesn't snow here very often!

  22. My morning routine isn't complete without coffee!

  23. Yes, sometimes the simple things are what bring me a lot of joy! Finding cute shoes in my size has always been difficult, so on the rare occasion that it does happen, I appreciate it! I'd love to read your post. Let me know when you write it and I'll check it out!

  24. Eating really good food would also make my list. A frozen meal ain't got nothing on a home-cooked meal with fresh ingredients.

  25. I love all forms of snail mail, but when I get a postcard or a note written on a pretty card, it makes it even better!

  26. Savannah really is such a neat place! I'm always learning something new about it. I can imagine that those moments with your family would be truly special.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yes, sometimes just the little things can add up and make the world so much better!

  28. I know! I get wayyy too excited about trying out different flavors. It is the best way to start the morning!!

  29. I love polite people in general--they just put me in a good mood!

  30. I love this blog post! Sometimes we forget how the easiest things could be our favorites. I love being able to hangout with friends that I haven't seen in a long time.

  31. Yes, sometimes the smallest joys are overlooked!
