10 Things I LOVE


It's the season of love, so here is a list of the ten things I love most in my life.

1. My cute hubby, Steve. There are so many different ways I love him, it's too hard to count!
2. Easton. My perfect little man. He makes me better. I love being his mom!
3. All other family members on both sides...LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I would be nothing without my family; their love and support keeps me going. I may be biased, but I'm pretty sure Steve and I have the best family in the whole world.
4. Friends. You know who you are, and I truly love you all to pieces!! My friends keep me sane, make me laugh, lift my burdens and tell it like it is...and I love you for it!
5. The BEAUTIFUL earth! I have always been amazed at how gorgeous this planet is. I love the rivers, lakes, oceans, mountains, forests, deserts, canyons...you name it. I love seeing these things out my window, from a car or a plane, or just in a picture. I love, when I'm somewhere I have never been, to just take in all the beauty that surrounds me.
6. Sunshine. I have learned, since living in a sunny place, that I really am happier when the sun is shining and the weather inviting. The sun warms me, relaxes me, and is such a good friend to me. I'd be miserable without it!
7. Cookies & Ice Cream. I probably love it too much!
8. Traveling. I just love to be going places. Even if it's somewhere that doesn't seem very exciting...I want to go. I love maps (nerd alert) and finding my way around new cities or places. I love to see different people, cultures, food, scenery...love it all... LOVE LOVE LOVE!
9. The Outdoors. Already sort of mentioned in the earth and sunshine sections...but this one deserves it's own. I love the great outdoors. Camping, hiking, walking, playing frisbee, BBQs...and so much more. Being outdoors is freeing to me. I could walk up and down the rocks by a river all day long and never get bored with it.
Or visit the same waterfall 18 times and find it just as gorgeous as
the last time I saw it. I love to explore.
10. Sleep. Who doesn't love to sleep? I get grouchy when I don't have enough sleep, and that's no fun. I love being in my bed with blankets and pillows galore, and sinking into a deep sleep.

So there you have it...just some of the things I'm in love with and that make me happy. What are some of yours? Have a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Nice, I love all the things you love, and I love you too! Nice song too, you are going to have to teach me a few things about blogging that I need to learn.

Aimee said...

Your love blog is great! I'm so grateful that you married my brother, he sure did luck out on that one. I could ask for a better friend and sis-in-law. And you do have all the good ideas for blogs...wait a second, I thought you were going to give your good ideas to me!

Aimee said...

Sorry, that should say couldn't! Silly me!

KIM, DANNY, SHAILEY, ELI and ISAAC said...

I loved hearing all the things you love! And I loved how many times you said 'love'. Very "Valentinish". :o) Anyway, I hope you and Steve get to do something fun for Valentines Day. As for Danny and I? We'll be at home watching LOST!!

Steve said...

Thanks Kara!

Alifinale said...

I never knew you love to study maps too! I love the same things and I think that is why I keep you around (I had to say that since I already told you that 2x today). Love love love it!

Landon & Kara said...

Brynne, Aaron and Cade said...

that's awesome! i love all those things too, if you can believe it! We're more like each other more than you care to wish or find out. SOrry! but i love it cause if I can be like you, a cool chick, then I"m cool too! :)

did you cut your hair or is that an older picture. I assume it's old cause E looks younger but just thought I'd ask!

Emily said...

Aimee: You were going to be in big trouble.

Kim: I can't think of a better way to spend Valentine's Day than to watch LOST!

Brynne: That pic was from last March...crazy, almost a year ago!

Christi said...

I agree! Those are all great things. I would have to put all those down as well.

Chad and Jessica said...

Love it! I love your sense of exploration....it's awesome. I love going to new places, even places most people would consider boring...it's fun feeling the unique vibe from each different place. I"m glad you're having lots of sunshine! And...ha...I love maps too. If I pass by one somewhere (the mall, the street, a store), I have to look at it and study it. I love seeing how everything fits together and placing the places I don't know, in context with the ones that i do. Lovely!

Jenni.Jolley said...
