Operation Nice: My "Love List"

So I thought I would write my "Love List" inspired by Operation Nice. If you aren't familiar with Operation Nice, you need to check it out. The only catch is you can't mention anyone you know.

I love bookstores and books. I love reading. I love the feel of pen on paper when writing. I love the smell of orange. I love McDonald's vanilla iced coffees. I love time to myself, but I also love when everyone is home. I love holidays. I love that we eat kielbasa, fruit salad and banana breads for breakfast on those days. I love cranking the music in my car and singing at the top of my lungs. I love my Vermont sunsets. I love lilacs. I love a good stretch. I love making someone laugh. I love the spicy scent of summer. I love fresh cut grass. I love fresh A & W rootbeer (the kind you get at A & W- not from the store). I love a simple hot fudge sundae. Apparently I love food. I love taking photos. I love photojournalistic wedding photos. I love weddings. Paper. Designing. I love the movie "Field of Dreams". I love that it makes me cry every single time I watch it. I love classic Winnie the Pooh. I love getting flowers. I love french onion dip and chips (it's a sickness). I love little kid belly laughs. I love a good dirty joke. I love getting bookstore gift certificates (it's my favorite gift). I love the smell of baking bread, and having a hot slice with butter. I love playing sports- especially softball. I love crisp autumn days that are filled with sunshine. I secretly love snow (for a little while anyway). I have found I love gardening. I love playing the piano. I love the first day of the year when you can wear shorts. I love hugs. I love beagles (well, animals in general, but really love beagles). I love collecting barbie dolls (not any old barbie, but the ones that mean something to me), and I love that this always surprises people.

What do you love? Make a list- it's a feel good exercise and even if you can't mention your loved ones, you'll still smile thinking about them.


  1. Your list is wonderful! I'm so glad you made one! I am a big root beer fan. Not sure if I have ever had fresh A&W though. But I do love fresh Stewarts. And brownie sundaes. Definitely love those!

  2. I love your list! I think I may need to make one too.
    I also have a secret passion for chips and onion dip. It's such a special treat!

  3. I too love a good stretch and fresh root beer. Saranac makes a good one that you can get on tap at some places, and I do love Stewarts (from the brown glass bottle) and A&W from the drive-in restaurants. Now a good stretch and a good root beer while having time to myself on a crisp autumn day....THAT would be heaven!
