Things I'm Loving Right Now

1. Hot Cocoa with Raspberry flavoring. Mmm. It's like a cup of candy.

2. Earrings that are just heavy enough that I can feel them move when I turn my head or laugh. (I'm wearing my new pair from Chile today!)

3. A handful of particularly remarkable friends of mine who make me smile and laugh. And I am so eager to give them their Christmas presents!

4. My one strand of Christmas lights in my work window. They make people smile as they walk by outside (including myself).

5. Lunches with my Mother. Who would have thought that every time we get together we have MORE stuff to talk about? Where does it all come from? I have a lunch date today and I'm sure we both have lots to share, as always.

6. The way my cat pulls all of her toys out of her toy basket and then runs around the house until she ends up under the Christmas tree exhausted.

7. The way my cat tries to eat the FAKE Christmas tree.

8. A perfectly made bed with matching shams and throw. I'm one of those people with all those darn pillows on the bed and everything has to match. And in the morning, even if I'm running late, I'll take the time to make it up, every single day.

9. Successfully, and gracefully, jumping puddles on the way to work.

10. My trips home on the highway, when the moon's out, the stars are shining, and all the little rural houses are covered in Christmas lights.

What are you loving right now? :)
