I love that my dear friend lisa marie sent me a picture

of her wearing a necklace i sent her… as a VERY late christmas present…

tee hee hee ~ I am running fashionably late this year

I love that today there was a package waiting by my door,

from lisa marie…

and in it was the most beautiful book ~

Romancing the Ordinary by Sarah ban Breathnach.

and it took my breath away because it was exactly what i wanted

and i hadn’t told her. she’d just known.

I’ve been reading Sarah b.B’s first book “Simple Abundance” of late…

and am adoring it so much.

I love that I have so many books touching my soul at the moment.

I love that my friend Jayne wanted to be a bulldozer driver when she grew up.

I love that yesterday on the bus, me and Paris couldn’t stop giggling or making fabulously obscure jokes that only we “got” ~ and that Paris said if we’d gone to primary school together, we wouldn’t have been allowed to sit next to each other.

Yay for friends that you wouldn’t have been allowed to sit with! 😀

I really love that my big brother is coming down to visit us for a week in a few weeks!

My gosh, I get excited the more I think about it… I love that he is taking the time out,

and the cost, just to come and hang out with his little sister…

I love that I really do think I have the best big brother in the world.

I love that in a few short weeks me and Lile are going on a business trip to Melbourne,

a city I’ve never been before, and we may have the chance to connect with the

Melbourned chapter of succulent wild women.

I love that my dog is curled at my feet.

I love the way Andrea Scher forms her thoughts into words and touches so many hearts.

I love that I am writing my first book. And I worry a little that it takes me away from blogging… but I know this is only temporary.

I love how I have so many friends that have touched my heart so sincerly, and joyously. I could never hope to name them all in their entirety, but I do so honour each joyful, blessed interaction.
