  1. I hope you get to experience all of these on a regular basis!

  2. @Kay G: Awwww...sweet. Thank you. I've been trying to post comments on your blog, but can't. I'm having some issues with certain types of commenting set ups. But I am reading your posts and enjoying them!

    @Jim: I make an effort to do so. It's the simple things that make us smile!

  3. Not sure how I missed this one... Martha, I can't keep up with you!!

    Great list, I bet you can guess #15 "strolling through thrift shops" is my favourite :)

  4. We share the love of strolling through thrift shops, for sure. I haven't even discovered yet all of the ones that are here. It's so much fun finding something unusual.

  5. It doesn't really matter what you love but that you love.
