I Simply Remember...

"When the dog bites, when the bee stings...When I'm feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad!" Last post with my take on this song. Promise. What is one of your favorite things??   p.s. we got a contract on our home...now the nail-biting part of waiting for everything to go just right.

I have three girls and I will make sure they get to pick their own dress and I will be happy because they are happy.~Cheers Kim

Now I have to find an old bicycle for my pedal/petal garden! I love that!

My favorite things:
The smell of horses.
The sound of toddlers giggling.
The sight of snow on winter trees.
The feel of kitty fur.
The taste of brownies still warm from the oven.
