The 10 Best Things in Life....

Every day you are reminded of how sweet life really is, whether you know it or not....
So, here's my list of the 10 best things life has to offer....You can't put price tags on these things! xoxo

1. Beating heart - this means you are alive and you have the capability of loving, being loved and making a difference in someone's life.
2. Smiles - these are contagious! Notice that when you smile at someone, you almost always get a smile back! See?! Do it!
3. Laughter - not only is it fantastic to laugh whether you be alone or with someone else - and its excellent excersize! Google it!
4. Driving with the windows down - If you can get over the worry of your hair getting messed up, stick you hand out the window or even lean your face out there. I love this feeling. I could care less if its 110 or 20 degrees outside, I always drive with my window down.
5. Toes in the sand - oooh....just try it!
6. Great conversation - notice how embracing it is to have a great conversation with someone. Its engaging, most times educational or enlightening. Its always entertaining in some way to have great conversation. Do it often if you can. Its easy to get busy and get stuck in routine, but if you have the chance to strike it up, you wont regret it.
7. Helping someone - you can hold a door open , offer to carry something for someone...It doesnt cost you a thing to do something kind for someone. Its win win. Kindness is rewarding.
8. Smell of the desert after the rain...Yeah, you might have to live in Arizona to get what I mean by this...But the smell of the dirt and mesquite after the rain is truly blissful.
9.  Handwritten notes - Isnt pretty awesome when rather than receiving an email or text someone leaves you a handwritten note? When was the last time you have a handwritten note or even received one? Why not? Just do it!
10. Nature - look around you. Take in a deep breath. Exhale slowly and indulge in the air you breath. Go to a park, a lake, a roadside stop and walk around look up. Look down. When was the last time you held a leaf and really looked at it. Its liberating to just observe stuff like that, that we take for granted. Live in the moment.

Bonus: Kissing - nothing is better than a kiss from someone you love, from a child, from anyone...Kisses are always good!

Way Too Long

Its been entirely too long since Ive written here....I used to love writing blog entries. I think its time I start again, huh?
To be inspired at home, especially during the holiday, then to stay inspired throughout the year and as life changes inside the home is a pretty humbling thing....
Value what you have.....
And for all my #GavinGirls.....Happy Holidays!
