These are a Few of My Favorite Things

In this season of spiritual revival and renewal, I am rediscovering a few old things and making the acquaintance of some new things.  These are just a handful of my favorite things these days:

I have been drinking *mostly* diet drinks lately (almost 20 pounds lost!) but this one tops them all!  Frosty cold, it's like going on a shopping spree in a candy store.

Speaking of drinks, this is my favorite wine.  Wine is quite the overstatement as it's labeled "dessert wine" (aka how much sugar can dissolve in grape juice?) but for $5.99 a bottle, it's perfect!

Since we got married in 2004, we have gone through three vacuums, not including one borrowed and one mini sweeper.  We took the plunge a few weeks ago and bought a blue Oreck vacuum cleaner.  Not just any dirt-picker upper but an intense and highly effective one.  We got $200 off by promising to bring them our three old ones, which will get donated to a local women's shelter after a little bit of botox.  Helping the underprivileged and getting my carpets clean.  Woohoo.

And, finally,  

My dead-sexy husband.  Since we've had more time to focus on our family and marriage, I'm falling in love with him all over again.  Walking through the toughest decisions of our life has fused our commitment and adoration for one another.  He continues to be my hero in every way.  What a man of honor and I am truly blessed to have been chosen by him.

I miss you, my dear and darling friend.
