the heart in the tree

little things I'm thankful for

* a good lip gloss * thoughtful people * friendly bank tellers * familiar strangers * a new blouse you look great in * discovering a new blog * how much fun it still is to play with Play dough * Thanksgiving break * how excited kids get over stickers * discovering a new kind of writing pen * this book * and this one * the way my eyes matched my sweater today * safe travels * hot, buttered toast * freshly shaved legs * well-loved stuffies * playing with my wide angle lens * love notes from students * Flickr friends * Netflix * vintage cameras * beautiful calendars * polka dots * friends who love you * grown ups who still blow kisses * pecan pie * cowboy boots * hearts hidden among leaves * ribbons * Hobby Lobby's wonderful gift wrap * chocolate covered mint Oreos * bedtime rituals * wedding china * Febreeze * sleeping in * ponytails * a cold drink *

By the way, the one picture of the ocean looks like it is from a place between Yachats and Cape Perpetua. Am I right? We have a vacation home in Yachats, and the picture looks very familiar.

You are so truly wonderful...you never run out of good things to make lists into.
The smell of play dough is enough to throw me right back into my childhood. More than any other smell I think. Thank you for that nostalgic blissful memory....I don't even need to have it nearby to remember what it smells like.
My spirit feels light and happy now thanks to you.

Oldies, but Goodies
