I didn't say it before but I loved Petra's zombie picture; I was seriously, seriously impressed.

I love Shannon's determination to post in this thread.

I love Steph's posting sprees these past few days; they make this place feel a little more like the home it used to be.

I love that Platypi is likewise making little posting sprees. It's great to get to know him better.

I love the people who have stood by me and loved me, despite everything. The ones who don't know and don't want to know the details, sure, but most especially the ones who do know and love me anyway. Things change, they always change, it's the way of the world, but there is a solid group of people here who I know I will love until the end of time. If they love me for even a fraction of that, I will be the lucky one for it.

I love the support I've gotten from my friends and family this past month.

I love the s*** out of my dogs.

Alea, you're awesome, you know that?

Sorry I slacked off yesterday--it's been a rather stressful couple days and I haven't thought much about things that I love.

But tonight, I love that I'm finally home. And I kind of love that all of my roommates are gone right now so I can have a bit of a crying session without having to explain that there is actually no reason why I am doing so (even though that was definitely not the plan for my Saturday evening).
I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

I also love Lilo and Stitch. And Kraft's cheddar explosion mac and cheese. Saturday night just got much better.

I love that Topanga kisses Cory the first episode she appears. I knew she kissed him that episode, but I didn't know it was that early in the show.

Heh. I have lots of love tonight I guess.

I love Alea!

I also love my new birdbath heater. It was 5F this morning and the water was still all unfrozen. Yay!

Today I love the Parmesan chicken my roommate makes. It put my ravioli attempt to shame, but it was okay because I got to eat a piece.

I am going to try to think of something each day that makes me happy, too. It seems like a great exercise for the soul!

Today I love my poopy, farty, barfy, didn't-let-me-sleep-last-night baby. Even if I'm exhausted today.

I may or may not have semi-planned my first kiss for this to happen.

I love chips and salsa. Which is weird, because I used to hate salsa.

This is possible?


I love recent posting sprees by Nomi and Bologna!

I love having a small "vacation" and being almost done with this moving business.

My husband hates salsa, along with every other condiment other than barbecue sauce (if that counts). I do like salsa even though I don't like onions.

I wanted it to snow on my wedding day SO BAD! Alas, it did not happen, even though I got married in December.

A friend who got married the next June had snow on her wedding day.

I think Colorado gets confused sometimes.

Seconded. I wish my experience happened with someone I have an ounce of respect for, but it was fun none the less.

The tax preparer in me had to fix that for you. It's a common mistake. You did your tax return and got a tax refund. :)

And I got Mark's W2 but because we bought our house at the end of December, I'm going to wait a few weeks just in case some odd tax form comes. I have our taxes all ready to go though.

My microfiber hair towel!
I know I had one for years I think I "borrowed" it from my mother in HS and I LOVED it!
Bt I accidentally left it (and 2 nice towels) in a KOA on out move across the country, very sad day :(

Where did you get yours, I'm always in the market for a new one?

Girl scout cookies are in?!? I have not gotten mine yet (that I ordered through Mark's workmate). They brought back my favorite lemon cookies this year and I can't wait to have them.

I love my new library. I loved my old home library too but it was different. It had more of a small town, old brick building kind of feel. My new one is really modern and big and clean and no dust allergies and still friendly and just awesome.
