today's gratitude is a little different than usual. this week i just kept noticing all these amazing things i love and can't get enough of. and in many ways, isn't loving something the same as being thankful for it? i think so.

i love...

that book pages can be turned into hearts.
holiday parties.
turning blogger friends into real life friends {carmella is just the sweetest and funniest gal with a heart of gold!}.
zooey's miscellany {zooey d's new tumblr}, also her sudden involvement in twitter full of awesome music info.
eating food straight from the earth {our lemons from our meyer lemon tree are ripe}.
nature inside our home {a real live christmas tree filling our house with nature-y aromas, the wood slices my dad brought from idaho for our wedding which now adorn the base of our tree, and of course, my chloe cat}.
that the world is full of so much music!
that we can all choose to sing!
those first sparks of clarity during times of feeling lost.
having the types of neighbors you can share treats with.
time with best friends.

what do you love?


  1. Right now I love my Christmas tree more than anything in the world. I'd go so far as to say I'm obsessed with it. Best decision I've made all year (to get one)!!

    I also love:
    *cooking baking
    *getting to sleep in (ummm, two weeks from now?)
    *the Saints winning the past 5 football games
    *my snuggie
    *cocktails with friends!

  2. I love the movie What's Eating Gilbert Grape. I never saw it before but it's on TV right now and I like it!

  3. My head is suddenly swimming! What an amazing post! I can't wait for the Renegade Craft Fair this weekend!

  4. AWW, thanks for sharing, dear! This post made me all sorts of happy!

    Today, I am loving:
    late night talks with the roommate
    dark chocolate m&ms

  5. Love turning blog friends into real life friends! That's been my favorite part of blogging, all the awesome people I've met along the way! ;)

  6. I love:
    *reading your lovely blog each morning
    *getting stacks of fun Christmas mail
    *listening to Jingle Bell Rock on the Christmas radio station and singing along LOUD
    *the chai tea latte that Hubs is going to bring me when he comes to pick Dylan up from Kindergarten (just down the hall from my classroom!)
    *that maybe, just maybe, I'll have a pretty living room by this time next week, and a Christmas tree up in the corner!

  7. Oh I love Meyer lemons. Have an awesome time at the craft fair!

  8. I love almost anything honestly! :)

    Twinkle Lights

    you name it, I probably love it! :)

  9. Again, thanks for sharing this Kim. I can't stop sewing. I just love it!

  10. What a wonderful list :) I love the image you chose (and that you mentioned that book pages can be folded to look like a heart. Beautiful).

    Because I'm in the holiday spirit, here are some of the things I love:
    *Christmas in New York
    *the first snowfall
    *Gluhwein (mulled wine)
    *cute mittens and hats
    *hot chocolate with whipped cream on top
    *sleeping in and sipping coffee in bed <this last one is not necessarily seasonal, but something I've been able to indulge in lately.

    Hope you're having a great weekend!
