I started this list in 2004 I think and have been adding to it a bit since that time. What do you love?
I love the feeling of walking barefoot in sand.
I love the sound of a tennis ball and racquet connecting on a perfect swing.
I love animals, especially dogs, and even cats, although I say I don’t.
I love walking in the woods and climbing mountains.
I love sunsets. I love watching them and taking pictures of them. And I’d probably love sunrises too if I even slightly enjoyed mornings and ever woke up to see one.
I love when someone is so excited about something, they make me excited too, even if I didn’t originally care at all about what they’re excited about.
I love to be tickled. Not the annoying poking kind, but the nice, soft, relaxing kind.
I love pop rocks. Especially when I get one so big it kind of hurts when it pops.
I love music and I love to sing and dance (alone), even though I’m not good and don’t know much about it.
I love hugs.
I love the way my mouth feels right after I brush my teeth.
I love watching little kids. And I love playing little games with them when their parents aren’t watching.
I love those moments in life when I feel deep joy and peace.
I love laughing so hard that I cry.
I love those moments when I am talking with someone and one of us says “oh my gosh, me too!”
I love the smell of pine trees and the way they whisper when the wind blows through them.
I love summer thunder storms- the sights, sounds & smells of them and the tense excited feeling I get when they come.
I love getting notes and messages from people for no reason other than for them to say “I love you.”
I love crunching leaves under my feet in the fall and I will go out of my way to step on an extra-crunchy-looking leaf.
I love finding a new song that I love so much that I basically have it on repeat for about 2 weeks straight.
I love people watching.
I love looking up into the night sky when there are big fluffy white snowflakes falling down.
I love the time of day I call The Golden Hour. When the sun is setting and the world looks as though it is glowing.
I love getting so absorbed into a good foreign movie that I eventually don’t even realize I am reading subtitles.
