10 Things I Love

A couple of days ago, I wrote about 10 Things I Hate. I think people enjoyed reading this for the most part. I did get some comments where people appeared to be concerned about my happiness. Don't worry--I'm doing fine! It was actually great fun to write about 10 things I hate. I recommend everyone do it!

However, to give equal attention to more positive feelings, I'm writing about 10 things I love today. Again, they're listed in no particular order.

1. I love the beautiful weather we've been having. I live in the hottest part of Los Angeles. Summers can be absolutely brutal here. For some weird reason, we've been having a relatively cool spring so far. It's been great!

2. I love that summer will be here soon. Hot weather aside, I love the carefree vibe of summer.

3. I love that the city of Culver City excused my parking ticket and agreed that I wasn't at fault. That was pretty damn awesome of them!

4. I love that my moving violation ticket that arrived in the mail yesterday wasn't the jury duty summons I initially thought it was! I feel like I escaped a bullet. I know, I still have a ticket to pay and traffic school to go to, but I knew i had that coming. At least I don't have to serve jury duty on top of that too!

5. I love that work gives me the flexibility to work and still be with my daughter when she's out of school. I feel like I have the best of both worlds.

6. I love that my husband, while he can nit-pick me to death, also supports me with all his heart. I know I'm not always that easy to live with either, so the support is appreciated!

7. I love that I'm going to BlogHer 11 in San Diego in August. It's going to be my first time away from my daughter. Considering that she's going to college in a few years, I say it's about time! Okay, she's only 7 and is many years away from college, but still! It's been 7.5 years, and I've never been away from her for a single night! Momma needs a vacation!

8. Looking forward to the vacation aside, I love that I'm enjoying the time with my daughter more than ever! She's come so far and is so much fun to hang with (most of the time). It's been a real joy parenting such an amazing girl!

9. I love that I can use my blog as therapy and share the good times and the less-than-good times! It's so much cheaper than seeing a therapist!

10. I love my life. Sure, I sometimes get bogged down by the small and petty things. But overall, I love this journey I'm on!

What things do you love about your life?


  1. 11. I loved reading this blog post. It made me feel warm inside... especially #6... good stuff.

  2. I love that I'm going to be meeting (and rooming with!) some of my favorite bloggy friends at BlogHer! I love that my husband is willing to stay home with two kids so I can leave :)

  3. Ahem. I assume, if the list went to 11, your favorite bald, obese and funny daddy blogger would have made the list.

  4. Oh boy. You're gonna have so much fun at Blogher! I'm glad you wrote the happy stuff, too. I often have to write a list of blessings just to get my mind focused!

  5. I LOVE reading blog posts that make me smile! :-)

    Have fun at BlogHer!

  6. I love alone time! just wish I didn't have to be up at 4am to get it.
