|Neil getting some puppy-love: dogspotting in Iceland|
There is so much in the world to weigh down even the lightest of spirits, so today I thought I would do a 'my favorite things' roundup.
I get by with a little help from my friends
It was a surprise and when I opened the box, I teared up. She knows I've been dealing with some difficult things in my personal life and the caring and kindness of this gift nearly unraveled me. In a good way. I feel wrapped in her concern and her love.
I am blessed with an amazing community of friends, near and far, with whom I can celebrate and commiserate. They feed my soul.
Music Hath Charms
Over the past few weeks, I have become enamored of/obsessed with the music of Hamilton. I have listened to the entire show more times than I can count and find more and more to love with each repetition. I am a serial monogamist when it comes to music: I'll listen to something constantly for weeks or months until the whole of it is embedded in my mind and move to something else.
I'm definitely still in my Hamilton phase and I'm not sure it's going to go away anytime soon. There's almost always some kind of soundtrack in my mind and music has always spoken to me.
What are some other of my favorite things?Good coffee
A starry sky
A bad pun
Warming my ice-cold feet against my husband at night
Playing with clay
Cooking for friends
