I'm a listmaker at heart and I can't help it. 

It doesn't matter if it's a grocery list, a to-do list, the kids' assignment sheets, or a list of places I want to go. It could be on a post-it, a calendar, in a beautiful journal, or on a napkin.  I just have to write it all down and since I have so many lists to share, I thought I'd give them their own page.


Things that make me happy….

wandering in the woods, absolute silence, Spanish moss dripping off the trees, the lightness of a new haircut, sand between my toes, a good night’s sleep, a pocketful of shells, musty courthouses, full of answers, answers that lead to more questions, having a handy husband, a pool of happy, splashing kids, watching lightning from inside a warm, dry house, old photo albums, Sunday afternoons, green, green grass, using the good china, making lists, a big jar of Nutella and a spoon, hot cocoa on a snowy day, watching fireflies dance by at night, cold, crunchy grapes, movie marathons, chocolate chip pancakes, listening to Frank Sinatra while my husband makes dinner, homecomings, giggles on Christmas morning, folded laundry and clean dishes, long road trips with happy kids, sledding in the sand, dinner by candlelight, friendly neighbors, finding REAL mail in the mailbox, snow angels, the smell of rain, post-it notes, playing a game of Boggle, listening to bagpipes at the Highland Games, looking for four-leaf clovers, the smell of fresh spearmint, crashing waves, visiting old friends, raspberry mochas, shopping for school supplies, a good game of Pitch, sleeping in, watching Pride and Prejudice for the 500th time, movie theater popcorn, warm brownie pudding with vanilla ice cream, driving a new car, chasing a rainbow, a warm flannel shirt, quoting The Princess Bride, being snowed in, Frangos mint chocolates, pistachio ice cream, meeting new people, raindrops on roses, the golden hour, power outages, cooking food over a fire, any shade of the color green, pesto, reading Pride and Prejudice for the thousandth time, root beer floats, online shopping in my PJs, taking the scenic route, used book stores, vintage trailers, making s'mores, Plantation Mint tea, homegrown tomatoes, picking blackberries, music on a record player, shopping at the farmers market
