Some of My Favorite Things in Spring

THANKFUL THURSDAY....a list of some of the simple things in life that make my heart happy -

** tall glasses of (unsweetened) iced tea
** enjoying dinner outside - no bugs and we recently got a new patio set:)
** spending the day with my brother...just the two of us..and listening to his "you remember that, right?"
He is a great story teller!!
** strawberries, blueberries, raspberries....yea - berries!
** a text message from a friend I haven't seen in months
** new neighbors that are really friendly and nice to live next door to
** Hubbie's "just to say hi" phone calls during the day
** having my devotion time the morning sun and fresh sweet air
** sleeping with the window open
** the fun new scents for summer at Bath and Body Works
** flowering dogwoods, forsythia, cherry trees, Bradford pears and the Judas trees
** watching Hubbie work so hard in the yard - still so studly:)
** a crusaders' Bible lesson on SPIDERS! :)
and, no, spiders between mentioned in the Bible and Spiderman have nothing in common!! :)
** evenings so clear you can see all the stars and even a few planets - cool
** ending the day with Hubbie...outside of Starbucks...with a cinnamon dolce latte!


  1. Oh I love spring... except we have lots of bees right now!!

  2. I love your list. I think I might have to come up with one of my own even thought this was Mom's favorite time of the year so I am having a hard time with spring right now. It is a great time of the year.

  3. Oh I loved your list...You have inspired me I think. I was going to skip this week, (I have had an usual amount of posts this weeks for me, haha) but I am going to get together a list like yours. I am also going to pop by Bath and Body works and see their new scents...I'm needing some. Have a wonderful day Jennifer...hugs..

  4. I do love spring and hope and pray it returns. We are currently having very high summer-like temps and it's driving me crazy!! Love the one about your hubby calling just to say hi. Very sweet!

  5. Love your list. I would have answered the same on a lot of the items. Love & blessings from NC!

  6. Hi Jenn,

    Have a great day tomorrow.
    Blessings hon,
