These are a few of my favorite things.

1.  Being a mother to my kids
While motherhood is arguably the most challenging thing I have ever done in my life, it is also certainly the most rewarding! When either of my duo hugs me fiercely -- you know the "I really, really love you hugs", well . . . the rest of the world and all my problems just melt away.  As long as they are healthy, and we keep learning and growing as a family . . . then I consider my job the best job in the world.

P.S. and this is exactly what I look like in the morning when I wear my kimono around the house.  *wink.

2.  Summer

For the last month I have been enjoying my summer more than ever (vacation will do that to you!). And everything that summer brings with it -- long days at the beach, being in the pool by 10am (because we slept until 9), ice cream cones and barbecues, good books & longer days.  I am already mourning the loss of these long, lazy summer days. 

My (remaining) summer to do list:  take more photos, eat more ice cream, blow more bubbles, take more naps!

3. Gathering with Friends & Family!

Enjoying a meal with family or friends always brings a smile to my heart! I am always looking for a perfect excuse to host a small dinner gathering or a big, fun pool party!  Weekend plans anyone?

4. Books
I love books!! And bookstores!! I am currently reading The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson.  It is the second book and the trilogy and, in my opinion, better than the first.  Also read this summer:  Little Bee: A Novel by Chris Cleave, Secrets to Happiness: A Novel by Sarah Dunn, and Beautiful People: My Family and Other Gamorous Varmints by Simon Doonan. 

5. Chocolate

This certainly isn't going to surprise anyone: I adore chocolate, especially ooey-gooey molten chocolate. My favorite indulgence!  

6. Flowers

Hope you all have a fabulous day!!
