I love

You know what I love? Sitting at the kitchen table at 9:14pm at night and blogging about nothing in particular, that's what.

I love swinging outside on a cool October evening at the park. I love sunsets and snocones and lots of hugs. I love singing in the shower even if Jonathan laughs. I love dirty diapers and wet sloppy kisses and even snotty cries from Truett, because it means he's breathing and happy and healthy. I love it all.

I love extra-hot chai tea lattes that make you krinkle your nose and say, "mmm." I love a good competitive game of chess...when I win. I love music that makes your heart warm up inside and fill with sunshine and joy like clean airy breeze. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then you really need to try out some new tunes. :)

I love a lighting display, from a really far distance, but I'll always love rain. Rain is from heaven, and it cleans the earth and brightens things up. Brown grass? Voila, rain makes it green. Dirty roads? No biggie, rain makes them new.

I love hugs from my husband after long days. I love movies late at night, when I know I won't have to wake up early in the morning. I love bright fingernail polish and books that make me cry. I love silly boy bands with catchy lyrics, and best friends who would do anything for you. I love generous people who are so selfless that their first though is always, "How can I help others?" There are people that I know that are like this, and it's absolutely remarkable to witness in a million ways. I love em!

I love the color white and really flexible vacation agendas. I love homemade sweet potato fries and home decorating blogs. I love penguins and I love playing the piano. I love grammar and all weird things like that dealing with words that make some people want to shoot themselves. By the way, be fair warned that I don't hold myself strictly to grammar rules on my blog. This is my blog, and the only rule is that it doesn't have rules, and that's the way I like it. :)

I love being an aunt to my precious little ones Audrey and McKennon. I love my family very much, and miss each on of them on a daily basis. I love to pray, so that works out well too, since family and prayer go hand-in-hand, right? I love photography and I love cool grass and a picnic. I love baseball games and fireworks.

And most of all? I love God. Yes, I love him beyond anything else. I love what he is doing in the world, because he's unpredictable and wise like that. He moves mountains and he changes hearts. He loves murderers and he loves mess-ups like me. He loves second chances, and friends, and laughing, and people.

Hmm, so that's what I love.
