I have been reading my blog friend Jessee's writings for awhile and I am always taken with her honest, sincere, and amusing thoughts, anecdotes and stories. Today I'm partying with Jessee; readers were asked to share 14 Favorite Things. Here are mine, in no particular order:
Chocolate. I especially heart dark chocolate, but any will do! And daily, please.
New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest. We lived in New Orleans for most of my adult life, and this is my favorite festival, held annually in the Spring. It is a celebration of cultural, racial, and culinary diversity. There's awesome food, all genres of music (not just Jazz), unique crafts, and spontaneous dancing and parades. Add it to your bucket list.
Hugs & Kisses
Flipping Through Magazines or the E-quivalent, Home Blogs
Iced Tea, Unsweetened (lemon optional but lots of ice)
Lilacs -- Oh, how I miss you so! The closest I can get in the South are hydrangeas and crepe myrtles, both of which are missing the heady scent. I loved picking lilacs!
The Shore: Ocean, bay or lake. Something about the surf relaxes me like nothing else can.
My Dog Jazz. He is a Bichon Frisee' rescue that we found on PetFinder and he is a keeper f'sure!
Long, hot showers with fragrant, bubbly bath gels.
Flea markets, antiquing, and craft shows. My favorite venue that combines all of these things is in Canton, Texas. There are lots of vendors, lots of excitement, and I rather enjoy watching the women trying to outdo each other's bling.
Breakfast at Cracker Barrel My husband doesn't understand the appeal, but I love eating breakfast at Cracker Barrel. It feels a little like my grandma's kitchen, and those rockers on the porch...SIGH!
Sunday morning praise & worship at my church is truly a mountain-top experience and one of the best parts of my week.
Warm Weather. Some like it hot. That would be me.
HOME is where my heart is because that's where My Family is. And they are my favorite thing of all.
Pop on over and share the linky love at Jessee's Spot!
