This has turned out to be a really enjoyable project. I would like to encourage all of you to work on something like this in your lives, whether it be in your journals, on your devices, or on your blogs if you have one.
I was considering writing a post about 100 things I don’t love. But I was concerned that it might come out as excessively negative and would offend people. It is currently in the planning stages. I’ll keep you posted.
I already started that post. It was also a lot of fun to create. 😂

100 Even More Things I Love
Crisp fall weather
Trader Joe’s plant and flower section
Sharon Salzberg’s books
Prioritizing rest over being busy
The smell of freshly mown grass
Breakfast at a restaurant
The crunch of fallen leaves under my feet
Binge watching a show and anticipating returning to it each night
Cutting boards made of wood (they make me feel like I am a chef)
Sunday dinners with my parents
Hearing my daughters voices upstairs
The smell of dried eucalyptus
My jade Gua Sha tool
The thought of some of you wondering what the hell a Gua Sha tool is. 🙂
The realization when I have nothing planned for the remainder of the day.
Finding a book on the library shelf that was on my TBR list.
Homemade macaroni and cheese
My friends’ blogs
Being sincerely happy for the success of others. I wasn’t always like this.
This time period that Anna is spending at home before moving out on her own.
Unexpected Starbucks runs
When the sky is a purple and orange color
“Will you love yourself for that?”
When things get bad, there’s always Schitt’s Creek and Gilmore Girls.
And Costco cinnamon rolls.
That my zinnias brought hummingbirds to my yard for the first time.
And that my sunflowers brought finches to my yard for the first time.
Only Murders in the Building
Accepting my neurodiversity (and it explaining so many things in my life).
Sitting inside a Starbucks on a cold rainy day.
Cardigans over tee-shirts
The recipe I discovered for homemade birthday cake. It has evolved into a lovely tradition over the last two years.
That Ella enjoys giving the dogs baths, meaning I don’t have to.
When a friend I haven’t heard from in a long time texts me unexpectedly.
When I’m alone in the car and have the opportunity to cry, talk to dead people, sing, and listen to my favorite music.
Going with the flow
Windows down, sunroof open, sunny day, loud music
Seeing bigger pictures
Amazon Smile (We loathe Amazon, I know. This is making me feel better until we leave.)
A fun gift shop full of things I don’t need.
Finding a song that feels like it was written specifically for me.
My podcast (I miss it. I need to get into a routine again.)
The plane finder app
Dresses with pockets
A good quote
A good salad
A good bra
Looking through old pictures
Not recognizing myself
When anyone brushes my hair
Or scratches my back
When I get to use the self-checkout scanner (Beep! Beep!)
The smell of green peppers and onions frying
Tara Brach’s books
Anna calling my soul homework “mommy magic”
This was recently in my Instagram feed:
It felt very much in sync with these 100 Things posts. ❤️
What do you love? I know you can come up with something good if I have enough to build three lists (300 items). Why not try building a list of your own?
