O, Wouldn't It Be Loverly?

Img_2503_2Rebecca Sower of scrapbooking fame (yes, that Rebecca Sower!!) tagged me on her blog! I am to write about 7 things which are lovely in my life right now.

Here goes:

1.} A new baby  incubating inside me!

2.}  My stamp collection displayed on the vintage shelf pictured here---just looking at this makes me happy!

3.} My blog readers who make my day with their witty, funny, challenging comments--love ya guys!

4.} Life-long friends who sometimes know me better than I know myself and love me all the same---hi Dawn, Eden, Hannah!

5.} The privilege of being a stay-at-home mom---I feel so blessed to be able to do this (even on the hard days when I feel like chugging down a stiff drink, like a Diet Dr. Peper with a lemon twist).

6.} My sister who is a peace-maker, who always laughs at my jokes, who chooses to focus on the bright side of things, whom I will miss terribly when she moves to Chicago in 3 weeks.

7.} The family-owned Italian restaurant right behind my house which wafts it's tantalizing aromas of marinara and garlic over my backyard wall and whose very presence promises to make this a very fat & happy pregnancy! Take-out, anyone?

So, now it is my solemn duty to tag 5 o' me blogging friends.

And the winners, randomly chosen off the top o' me pregnant brain: JoAnn , Heidi-Jo , Chelle , Aisha, and Anna !
