favorite things

My family brings me so much joy in life.  I have been blessed with a family that I can honestly say I enjoy spending time with.  Between my immediate family, extended family, and my in laws, I can count family members as some of my very best friends.  This may already be obvious to you, considering the number of times I have mentioned my family in posts in the few short months that I have been blogging.

One of my favorite things about my husband Riley is how very different he is from me.  This is a good thing, most of the time.  We learn from each other and push each other to become better versions of ourselves.  Every once in a while, we even find something that we enjoy doing together, usually in the form of some kind of project.  Life with Riley has reminded me that a little bit of dirt is good for the soul.  Life with me, however, has taught him that things aren't always what they seem.

The women in my family have a very special place in my heart.  I had a grandmother that lived down the street who occupies some of my fondest childhood memories.  And a great grandmother whose love of jewelry is still inspiring me.  I have a mother whose creative spirit helped shape who I am today.  And a sister, without whom I wouldn't have learned the importance of a guilty conscience or the power of a shared closet.

These people, and these memories, are some of my favorite things.
