Favorite Things || Spring 2016 Edition

During our belated spring break trip, my sister, grandmother, and I took a daytrip to South Haven, MI. My family and I have made a point of visiting Lake Michigan since the summer of 2003 and South Haven has been a particular favorite place of ours since our first summer on the lake house with all of the cousins, aunts, uncles, and our grandmother. The town of South Haven was not as crowded as I was used to during our most recent visit and the lake was not as high as it typically is in the summer, but it was still beautiful. Visiting South Haven feels like coming home. It’s a part of so many good memories, so it feels like a part of me now.

Without further ado, here is my spring edition of my favorite things!

>>eating so much good food
>>window shopping
>>waking up at Grandma’s house
>>visiting with cousins

>>riding the train (with my journal, of course!)
>>wedding shower fun!
>>fellowship with God’s people
>>Sunday school shenanigans
>>invigorating discussions with ladies Bible study
>>“Fireflies” by Future of Forestry on repeat
>>spring and summer clothes
>>sandals, flip-flops, and bare toes!
>>browsing used bookstores
>>warm sunshine and cool breezes
>>beautiful fields of green and gold
>>the smell of a rainstorm

>>long evenings
>>beautiful sunsets
>>running my FIRST 5K
>>successful student recitals & proud teacher moments 
>>watching Captain America: Civil War twice in theaters (ALL THE BUCKY FEELS!)
>>covering my favorite song (because I know I'm lucky)

  1. Congrats on the 5K!! :) and I appreciate the concreteness of taking the time to write down favourite things//things we are thankful about.

    ps. on favourite things, the weather has been incredible (minus the tornados) and catching the light through the trees is happiness.
