these are a few of my favorite things // 1

+ doing morning devo's with the window open and the birds chirping and singing
+ hot, hot, coffee as soon as I wake up
+ this post by an amazing girl I grew up with that feels like she wrote down exactly what I was thinking.
+ 90 Days though the Bible (it's been amazing, and I feel like i've been discovering new concepts and things in all the familiar accounts.)
+ Rereading The Mitford Series (So adorable and sweet and chock full of God and truths in every page.)
+ A flying visit back home to see my bestie and her family last weekend. 
+ new friends over the internet
+ hilarious quotes by little brothers
+ getting to spend time with my oldest brother
+ driving on the highway with all my windows down and my hair tangling
+ my puppy who is always overjoyed to see and interact with me
+ finding $16 unexpectedly, in the back pocket of a skirt I hardly ever wear, this morning
+ Lydia's infrequent giggles
+ watching people interact
+ running into one of my best friends completely randomly
+ stupid pixar movies that make me laugh and rewatching the last season of one of my favorite tv shows in anticipation of another season coming out soon!!
+ enough flowers blooming in the yard to make bouquets
+ anticipating a coffee date with a friend
+ the vitamin string quartet (weirdest name ever, but I love their covers!)
+ being able to smile again without pain (!!! the blisters are finally gone, and I'm thrilled. ;)

This list was inspired by Dani, at A Vapor in the Wind


  1. I love this :) I was just singing this song today. Reminds me . . . I should do another "blessings" post soon.

    find me at:
    Dance A Real & walking in the air.

    1. i know, it's a wonderful song!! :) I love the idea of blessing/favorite posts... I started a gratitude journal and it's been fun to keep track of God's gifts. :)

  2. I really like your bouquet! Pretty! :D
    What is the name of your favorite TV show? (just wondering if I might know it. ;)
    Glad you can smile again! ;)
    Hope to see you soon! :)

    1. Thanks, Megan. I love flower arranging!
      The show is called "Call the Midwife," and this sounds strange, but my advice would be proceed with caution where it is concerned. ;) There is a birth or two in every episode, and so there's all that involved, but there is also other "questionable" content that you just have to use discernment. Mom and I feel that they approach real life difficult circumstances and decisions in a really good way. It's all part of life. But there is quite a bit of "sketchy" situations. So just use caution. :)
      Hope we see ya'll soon too!! Hope you're doing well. :)

    2. Ah, okay. I've heard of that. :)
      We're all healthy, thanks! Hope you all are too. :)
      Have a great evening!

  3. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who can relate to my blog post! :) I could relate to everything you said in your comment too! Thank goodness for blogging. I think all the insight that I never get to say out loud ends up in a blog post. ;)

  4. Beautiful list- I love blog posts like this! There is something so uplifting about them. Your pictures are beautiful also.
    Have a lovely day!

    1. Thanks, Lauren. I love lists/grateful posts too! They're always so fun.

  5. What a sweet post, Becca Anne! Such a fun list - and how fun! Hope you and Hannah had a fabulous time. :)

    1. Thanks for commenting, Rissi. :) Hannah and I had a lovely visit, but it was much too short. Next time it'll have to be longer. :) We were buying Jamberry nails, so that was awesome!

    2. That does sound fun! Funny thing is, my aunt was just asking me if I'd heard of Jamberry nails. Clearly I will have to get "in the know" about this fabulous product. :) Right now, when I do my nails (apart from polishing them), I just buy the inexpensive kits at a place like WalMart. They work for what I need, but I'm always interesting in trying something new.

  6. Becca, I loved reading this! I think I missed something, because I didn't know you were getting blisters in your mouth!! I'm glad you're feeling better.

    Also, those bouquets are absolutely beautiful! Did you make those?!? If so, you should definitely consider becoming a professional florist. :)

    1. Glad you liked it, Dani! I started getting blisters all over my lips a couple weeks ago, (mom thinks it had something to do with the high fever I had.) but they got so bad I could hardly open my mouth or eat for about a week. Luckily the blisters are gone and the chapped lips is started to heal too. ;) T'was a pretty miserable experience.

      I actually am {sort of} considering taking some florist classes. I love arranging flowers so it would be pretty cool to learn more about it.


I read and appreciate every comment. :)
