Books; Sunsets; My mom; A grown-up car with a sunroof; Redecorating our living room; Potty training is finished and so are diapers in our house; Church; The smell of field dirt while driving on a country road at night in the summertime; watching Breaking Bad with my husband; Peppermint ice cream; A good dental cleaning; My naturalpathic doctor; Clementine oranges; My lumpy pillow; The two times my kids both slept until 9:00am.
