I started this list months ago, figuring it shouldn't take me too long to get to 100 things. It just seemed like a nice round number to get to and then post. But I've been stuck at 52 for a while (though I know I like more than 52 things…I wanted them to be unique and significant in some way), and the idea came to me to do a photo study of this list of things I like, working on one per week for a year. So I think I'll make it a project for myself. Not sure when I'll start. I'd like to end up with a photo that illustrates each of the things on my list. Some will be harder than others. But I'm due for a challenge.
here's my list of things i like:
real parmesan cheese. (i eat it by the slice)
the silence of a snowstorm.
that ache inside that happens when i see something beyond beautiful.
laughing with friends until i cry. (more cowbell, anyone?)
the smell of onions sizzling in butter.
a firm handshake.
surprises. (happy ones, anyway.)
a really inspired color combo.
catching a significant moment with my camera.
those clouds that look like they've got a hard edge.
leaving on a jet plane.
the always-enduring mercy of the Lord.
black raspberries right off the bush.
piano solos. (not played by me, but enjoyed by me!)
blueberry coffee from dunkin donuts.
standing on the edge of the ocean, getting the sand sucked out from under my feet.
getting lost in a really good story.
good hair days.
hundreds of men's voices lifted together in praise of the Lord Jesus.
really dark chocolate.
an unexpected free afternoon.
a well-worn Bible.
finishing a race.
real maple syrup.
that last bite of an ice cream cone.
waking up and not needing to get up yet.
an open road and wide-open windows.
sleeping under the stars.
the crunch of autumn leaves.
the noise of a printing press.
partially frozen Pepsi.
beautifully textured paper.
pumpkin spice lattes.
the word "wonky."
the sound of the ocean.
the first frost.
giggling with children.
office supply stores.
