Some of my favortie things....


Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens;
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens;
Brown paper packages tied up with strings;
These are a few of my favorite things.


I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite things.....

Happy New Year.
Sitting on mama's front porch watching a storm come in while drinking ice tea is my favorite thing that you wrote. What an awesome and relaxing way to spend time. We don't get many storms here, but when I was in Oklahoma we got some doosies. Plantations and the color pink are pretty cool too.

Great list. I hope you enjoy all these favorite things many times over the next year.

I love your list, Jen!

I could picture you and your mom sitting on that porch. I have similar memories, myself.

Mexican? Margaritas? Wine? Oh, yes...some of my favorite things, too. Not to mention Starbucks. I am sensing a food theme here...do you? *LOL*

This is nice. Found your blog from BigMama's site and it is really neat. My hubby is from KY, Bowling Green exactly and we are there 2 to 3 times per year visiting family. We are also thinking of moving back that way .. borders of KY or Nashville. Anyhoo, thanks and I will be back!

Needless to say, I'm right there with you with respect to the Starbucks coffe and the Mexican food and margaritas, in moderation, aren't bad either :)

Hey There,

Not sure how I found your site, but wanted to stop for a minute to tell you just how much I love it! I love what you say at the top, "Behind every successful woman..." too funny!!!

Can't wait to come back and hang out a bit...sorry to hear about the whole carpet nightmare.
