A Few of My Favorite Things

This is just a random post with a few snapshots of some recent blessings + joys. This morning my amazing father brought me a huge cold pressed coffee at work, “with lots of cream”, and it was so good. Even more, it totally blessed me that he is thoughtful like that. I am pretty blessed to not only have the world’s best dad, but a pretty awesome boss too!

What’s better than dark chocolate and tea during the evening? It could become a ritual!

A little candlelight dinner with my little sis.

The sunsets through the window at the hotel (where I work) have been incredible! I love watching the sky change colors, and I have the perfect view of the sky through the windows facing the west.

My really kind + thoughtful brother brought me roses. All the sweet things he said were enough to make me cry, and I did shed tears as I was enveloped in one of his sweet big hugs. How I love Mitch and all my dear brothers. He’s such a solid man, and knows how to make a girl feel loved.

A little quiet in the morning to get in the Word……some fresh air……and a good mug of strong coffee…….that’s the powerful way to start a day, in my opinion! Truly “His mercies are new every morning”, and that’s something I am really so grateful for.

What are a few of your favorite things of late?

much love,

  1. The eclipse. 🙂 It was so amazing to see God’s handiwork portrayed in the sky like that. 🙂 Also, long walks on a quiet road, frosted coffee from Chick-Fill-A, and toast with lots of butter. 🙂

  2. Love this, Allison…especially about Mitchell bringing you roses; you have such sweet, thoughtful brothers! A few of my favorite things right now are…preparations for Family Camp, beautiful weather, long emails from sweet friends, a beautiful new song to learn on the piano, and my sweet little brother who loves to be with me. <3 🙂

  3. That is all so lovely! <3 My little sister scratched my back while I was scratching hers, I thought that was pretty sweet of her to think of me =)

  4. New piano books, dinner + ice cream dates with a sweet brother of mine, random bursts of writing inspiration, flowers my youngest brother brings me from outdoors, and blog posts like these… are a few of my favorite things! Aren’t we so blessed?!

  5. A few of my favorite things…I like the sound of that :):) I love late night talks with my sister, playing the piano, cleaning the bathroom 🙂 sparkling green tea lemonade with a shot of raspberry in it.
    I will bless the Lord at all time, his praise shall be continually in my mouth.
    Thanks for sharing with us Allison!
