A Few of My Favorite Things

Staying home and the news has me feeling a little down- so I’m trying to focus on all of the things that bring me joy. Today I made a list of all the things that make me happy- and I’m sharing them with you!

In the words of Maria Von Trapp….These are a few of my favorite things:


YellowBright like sunshine.


Country musicabsolute favorite. My favorite singer is Kenny Chesney- my favorite song is Anything But Mine.

TV Show

Gossip GirlBlair is an icon.


ElephantsI love them so much that I even have an elephant Tiffany bracelet with my birthstone, the Peridot.


SummerGive me days by the ocean, salty air, and sunshine. 


Tuesdays With Morrie…the only lesson you need about what is important in life.


Hyacinthsthey smell like spring. 


Notting Hill…The most romantic storyline featuring Hugh Grant.


Fresh bruschettaTomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, french bread, olive oil, salt and pepper = heaven.

Bible Verse

John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”the verse that always grounds me and reminds me of the importance of Jesus.


ThanksgivingI love everyone gathered around the table (anndd mashed potatoes!). I think Thanksgiving is my favorite because it’s so warm and cozy. Good food, family, and friends all together just celebrating the gifts we are given. 


Eggs benedictNo explanation needed. Pair it with grits and a biscuit, please. 


God of the SparrowThis is the hymn that taught me how to read! I joined the church choir when I was a little girl and couldn’t read yet. This hymn talks about God’s love for all His creatures, and it brings back happy memories from my childhood. 

What are your favorite things? What brings you joy?
