What's Up The Street For Next Week?

These are a few of my favorite things...

I've had the song running through my head this morning and it has me thinking about the things I love most. Writing, books, family, sunshine.

Spring.

We won't go there. Yet.

And some of my favorite things surround me everyday. And what a joy it is to count the things that I love and give thanks to the One who gave them to me.

What's up the street...

Fresh ground, fresh brewed coffee has to top the list. Writing. Birds singing. Writing with a newly sharpened pencil. Books. Chocolate. I'll stop there.

I'm looking forward to spring. It means that the end of the school year isn't far away. I guess I should add the last day of school as one of my favorite things. But then I'd have to be completely honest and say the first day of school is also one of my favorite things.

Thanks for the post and the lists!

Good morning Christine! Those are good things. :) And yes the first and last days of school are ALWAYS an adventure, so I would completely agree with you there. :)

Thanks for stopping by this morning!

HEY, CASE ... thanks SOOO much for posting about my pitch dilemma!! So far SF Wealthy (my original proposal) is running away with it, so maybe my instincts aren't so far off after all ... :)

Hugs,
Julie

That's great Julie!! As I was seeing some of the responses I definitely it was a good idea to do it through FB. Then you can read and reply to responses, see why people think the way they do. :) And ANYTHING you write is going to be great. Believe it. I do. :)
