i LOVE the idea of the list! i just searched all of your posts tagged as such and think this idea is spectacular.

have you ever visited the Three Beautiful Things blog?

every day, she posts three things about her day that she's grateful for. it's like a study in gratitude.. but they're written so beautifully, a lot of them turn out to be very unexpected but awesom things.

i am in love with this list. i think i'll start one of my own to remind me of all the good/beautiful/happy things there are in the world. thank you so much for the inspiration. (also, i'm totally with you on the booth at a restaurant bit. beats a table any day!)

I love being tucked in and my honey does it regularly! He also loves car rides in the evening so we do that as often as we can.

i love your list so much! {love!}it inspired me to start my own and i find it so refreshing to walk through my days being more aware of all the little things that bring me joy! i do find though that i struggle to remember to write it all you carry your journal with you everywhere you go in case you happen upon something you love?
thanks for sharing

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
