Favorite Things

Today I feel inspired to share my joy with you, by sharing a list of my favorite things.  One of my favorite things to do when I’m getting to know someone is to send them a list of my favorite things, and then ask them to send me a list of their favorite things in return.  I love knowing what people find irresistible and worth living for.  So without any further ado, here’s my list:
