I am doing NaBloPoMo this month. 30 blog posts in 30 days. You can read more about it on San’s blog the in between is mine. #nablopomo2022

Through my comments I came across the blog a grace full life and her list of ‘100 even more things I love‘.

  1. What a great idea! I do short lists of things I love on the blog, but I think that going to 100 really makes you stop and think…dig a little deeper ❤

    Today I'm loving:
    – quiet
    – clean laundry
    – my favourite sentimental Christmas decoration has been unboxed for another year
    – prepping my parents rental house; they move to within 5 minutes of me for the winter TOMORROW!
    – the community of blogging friends I've met over the last year; they really means so much to me!

  2. THis is a nice list! A lot of these would be on my list too. I would add: Earl Grey tea, naps, and college football. Oh, I’m sure if I got started I would come up with my own hundred!

  3. I like your list! I love lemon sorbet, and a lot of things on your list. As a NorCal girl, but on the East Side of the Caldecott tunnel, I am very thankful for the fog in the summer.

  4. I love your list! It has helped me to get to know you a little better. So many of your favorites are also some of mine. Unplanned get togethers, the sun on my skin, going shopping by myself… Thank you for sharing yourself with me. ❤️

  5. I love these posts! And yours is full of such lovely, cozy things! (I have been trying to make a list but am stalled out at #25 haha!) One for me: I love walking past houses outside and smelling fresh laundry through the dryer vents.

  6. I love your list!! I feel like we have quite a bit in common…. a few things made me squeak (Cross-Stitch! Sissi! Die Maus! .. I should tell you that I have a “Die Maus”-stamp (somewhere) – it’s the cutest.

    A not-so-obvious thing that would make it on my list? Probably… a fake TV-fireplace (it’s ridiculous how much I enjoy that).

  7. I love this list! It must have been so challenging to get to 100 but so rewarding at the same time. I believe I did this exercise one Thanksgiving years and years ago, and I should try it again sometime! We really do have so much to be grateful for when we sit down and think about it.


  8. This is an awesome idea – love your list! I would add… specific to me, my apartment. General thing? Ice cream – specifically, ice cream with a peanut butter ripple in it. Vanilla or chocolate base. Mmm… 🙂
