Favorite Things Thread

Hi everyone! This thread is to post your favorite things--things that make you happy, things that you like better than others, just generally things that you love. You can post as many as you want, whenever you want to...but basically just list your favorite things! 

Some of mine: The ocean, the red-white-and-blue corner of a Rubik's Cube, sunsets, sunrises, trees that are good for climbing, my maroon sweatshirt, the smell of baking chocolate-chip cookies, that kind of day that's warm with a bright blue sky and a breeze, and wind. There are lots more but I have to go now. :)

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...

You’ve got that stuck in my head now. :P I love this idea, though. It reminds me of a journal page I’ve done before where I just filled up a whole page with things that make me happy.

Let’s see...I have so many. Furry and soft things, mist over the mountains, Celtic music, sunlight sparkling on dewdrops, thick black ink, fanning through book pages, losing myself in my fantasies, trees with silver bark, doing semi-crazy things, the number five, being very high and unafraid, the feeling of belonging, not being able to stop laughing, fuzzy socks, boots, contendedness, buffalo wings, early morning, satisfying things, horseplay, Lake Michigan, sunsets that turn the mountains purple, the smell of sweet hay, belting the lyrics to songs I love, new pens, creating worlds, playing sardines in the dark, blue, being underwater and feeling graceful and weightless, making up dances with my friends, that feeling when someone just gets you, ultra-caramel Frappuccinos, having friends that feel like family, earning the trust of an animal, nutmeg.

Pools, fluffy things, pillows, puppies, small dogs, new clothes, vanilla ice cream, playing video games, dance music, anthemic music, teal, my jean jacket, combat boots (tho I don't have any right now, I broke my last pair somehow), wolves, modern architecture, neon lights, cities at night (especially in the rain), thunderstorms, cooking, snow, doing art even though I suck at it, huskies, foxes, kittens, cheese puffs, smoothies, ukulele, rain, vacations, my aunt Julie (I mean, I know people don't technically count as favorite things, but I love my aunt so I kinda had to mention her), trampolines, Star Wars, popcorn, my favorite hoodie (it's gray and it has the logo for my taekwondo school on the back), sparring in taekwondo, my lucky socks (they're gray and red with ninjas on them and there's a pattern of throwing stars on a red border on the top), my dog Casey (she's my best friend... wow that sounded sad), and life hack videos.  

That was way too long...

You live by lake michigan too! I live in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan and I love Lake Michigan. Especially the fact that it isn't salty and there are no sharks(No salt, no sharks, no worries)

Actually, I live in Kentucky, but my family and I have been vacationing by Lake Michigan every year for...I think this year will be our sixth. That’s cool that you live so close, though! (Unsalted and shark-free ftw ^^)

Lake glass, stews and soups but especially pureed or noodle soups, chocolate, hot chocolate, winter, fall, ricecrackers, sunny drives through the countryside (basically anywhere five minutes away from the edge of town), stormclouds over fields that haven't rained yet, cool breezes, cool weather, warm clothing, soft blankets, dogs, interesting clouds, nice trees, lollipops, a good book, lasanga, soda, sleep, the scent of an open window and breeze blowing inside, and ice skating. Especially ice skating.

Trees, nature, the ocean, having really close friends who just get you, swimming, getting lost in fantasy worlds, chocolate, pretty colors, fairies, laughing, ice cream, fresh bread, fluffy animals, my dog, making art, being inside during a thunderstorm, good music, traveling...

This is a really cool idea!

Drinking English Breakfast Tea on a cold winter morning, talking to my dogs when they are nice and dry (which isn't very often), re-reading my favorite book series (there are many), the sense of satisfaction when I get a perfect score on a test, swimming in water that is just warm enough to be above freezing, long walks in the woods at the peak of every season (when the trees are budding in spring, the leaves are at their most colorful in fall, ect.), and of course there are more but I must be going.

The smell of the ocean, eating an icecream cone, fuzzy pajamas, hot tea on a winter day, cuddling with my cats, riding my bike down a big hill, warm days, walking barefoot in sand, making people laugh, sunrises, flip-flops, reading new books, fluffy pillows, going to the library, snow, swimming pools, takeoff and landing on airplanes, and rain.
