Since February is the month of love, it’s a chance to celebrate a few of my favourite things and remind myself to be grateful for blessings big and small.
1. My family
Tech Guy buys me chocolate “just because.” And when I’m on deadline, English Rose makes sure I remember to eat.
In these and so many other ways, my family is my strength, compass and refuge.
2. Floppy Ears
My furry child gives me unconditional love, makes me laugh and is always there when I need a cuddle.
3. Female friendship
My female friends support and nurture me in life and writing.
4. My small-town life
For deep roots and a strong sense of community.
5. Ice cream
Because sweet treats make life better.
6. Shoes (and slippers)
With fabulous footwear, life is more fun.
Because making and listening to music makes my soul happy.
For comfort, inspiration and joy.
Learning and growing my craft to tell the stories of my heart.
10. You, my readers.
And connecting with you virtually and in person.
Wishing you love and joy in February and all year through!
Well put, Jen! Isn’t February a grand month to celebrate love!!
It is indeed a grand month for that, Arlene. Thank you! xo
Lovely list. And my mom has the same china. I love it!
Thank you, Jennifer. That plate is the only piece I have in that china pattern but I love it too!
Another gem! With just the right choices on your list. Lovely…
Thank you, Lynn. I’m happy you enjoyed this post.
I love your list!
Thank you, Janice. How nice to “see” you here on my blog!
I also have a lovely husband who buys me chocolate “just because.” I think this is a delightful list, Jen. It looks so simple, but each item reveals a bit of what makes you who you are.
PS I hope those chocolate fingers were eaten after they did their photo-shoot!
Thank you, Susanna. How lovely that you get chocolate “just because” too!
And yes, those chocolate fingers were eaten very quickly! xx
Love is what picks you up at the end of a terrible day. Love welcomes you home when you’re worn out by the world. Love is the greatest gift we can give each other, whatever that may look like!
Beautifully put, Heidi. Thank you for sharing those wise and meaningful words.
