Things I Love

This gratitude post was inspired by Schmutzie's post on Aiming Low.  
I wrote one of these a while ago at my old blog.  This one is my update.
Pandan, Daet Camarines Norte
... my grandmother’s house in the Philippines, with its jasmine and rose bushes, rice paddy field, and kalamansi trees...
... summer day trips to small towns just outside the city...
... having the door held open for me...
... the crack of the hard caramelized sugar top when I dig into a creme brulee...
... Scottish accents...
... bacon baked so that the fatty bits are dry and crisp...
... white walls I freshly painted myself...
... how fast I can make myself breakfast thanks to my favourite dairy-free shake...
... update pictures of the SOS childrens village we support every month...
... green tea, moscato, and gin and tonic...
... that the moment I sit on the couch, Cora comes and lies down on my lap...
... my house right after a good cleaning and I can invite people over...
... that my daughter and I go to Disney on Ice ever year because it's become tradition...
... watching new episodes of The 100 and Shadowhunters on Netflix...
... the feel of a fresh pair of contact lenses...
... how light my head feels after a long overdue haircut...
... that, sometimes, all I need is a quick swipe of my favourite lipsheer to make me feel better...
... how saying just one word would set my husband and me laughing over a shared memory...
... real-life royal weddings...
... teaching hula 'auana workshops...
... the feeling after Goodwill comes and takes 10 boxes of your clutter away for other people to use...
... walking around Hilo, Hawai’i on misty days...
... when my online accounts notify me that I’ve been paid...
... watching my daughter dance lyrical and my son dance hip hop...
... that I lived with my husband first before we got married...
... soft fresh salmon sashimi...
... starting a brand new erotic romance novel by any one of my favourite authors...
... going out for breakfast with my sister... 
... dancing hip hop with my dance group...
... spending the whole day in pajamas...
... the caesar’s salad at Stella’s that has the perfect amount of garlic and parmesan...
... rediscovering what flowers I had planted when they pop up again in the Spring...
... the warmth of the Summer sun on my face...

How about you? What do you love right now?
