My Favorite Things~

There are a few things that really bring me pleasure..make me smile...make life good!

The first is Chocolate!  I LOVE chocolate..in any form...M&M's.. Hershey Kisses.. Chocolate Chip Cookies..etc..etc..
The next thing I love is to read.  I love a good book.  I love a good story!  I love to hold a book and physically turn pages.  I love the way the paper feels and the smell of books.. I love books and love to read.
I love the full moon.  It is beautiful and magnificent.... I am always in awe at how bright and big it gets.
I love putting on clean socks.  Once they have been washed and dried, they fit tight and snug.  I love putting on clean socks! 
I also like sleeping in clean sheets!  I love the smell, and I love climbing in bed with clean sheets!
I love Halloween.  I like to dress up.  I love to watch my kids get excited about it.  I love Halloween parties and treats.  I love seeing others dressed up and happy.   I love Halloween. 
I love the change of seasons.  I love Spring, Fall, Winter and Summer.  I am a seasons girl.  Out with the old in with the new...  
I love when Chad and the kids are all home in bed and asleep.  My house is quiet and so peaceful and safe.  I love to hear them breath deep and relaxed and I wonder what they are dreaming about. 
I love the telephone... I love to talk...
I love the movie "Pride and Prejudice."

So, I may not be one of these people that dances and sings and writes poetry.  I may not be one of these people that climbs mountains and runs marathons...But I am passionate and I love people!


  1. Rachel you have ran a few 1/2 marathons. You should be proud of that. And who could live in a world without books and chocolate? They are both yummy. This post reminds me why we are kindred spirits.

  2. I agree with Sarah, you are totally a runner! You are super athletic, I FREAKING WISH I was! I love you (and Sarah) and am so glad we are friends.
