…And here’s the last batch!
13) Green Ginger Tea
I’ve never like tea, and anyone who knows me knows that I drink water. Water. Nothing else. But this last year, Ben convinced me to try tea. I am in need of new ways to treat myself, since I can no longer eat most of the things I used to love, so it was time to find new loves. So I drank tea every day until I made myself like it. And now, I really, really love sitting down to relax and enjoy my tea! Weird. That still doesn’t sound right to me… Proof that you can get used to anything!
I love it because it combines my love of writing and photography. I’ve always wanted to write a book, but today I read an interview of one of my favorite bloggers, who has written books, and she said that her blog is her greatest book yet. So, maybe these days I am writing a book!
15) Smart Set
Most of my clothes come from Smart Set. I try to buy stuff elsewhere, just to have some variety, but when I just can’t find what I’m looking for, I always end up back at Smart Set.
16) Yoga and Pilates
I’ve been doing yoga for a long time, and love, love, love it. It is so incredibly relaxing, and makes you feel good from head to toe. But recently, I was encouraged to try pilates because of my hips, and it’s been really great, as well. (That’s a picture of my yoga mat, by the way. I don’t have a picture of me doing yoga!)
17) Joy and CONTENTMENT
I am loving my girls. Anika can be wild and crazy, and stretch my parenting abilities, and Kaylia can eat most of the sand on the beach, and keep me running, but I still really love being a mom. And I love this stage of my life – I love being content, and not carrying around that weight any longer of wanting a baby and not being able to have one. I love just feeling happy and content. I love seeing how much our girls love each other.
18) Times Together
I love any time I get to spend with Ben. One of my favorite times is when we have to drive into the city, and we have almost 4 hours of driving time just to talk. I am so very thankful to have such a wonderful husband!
