I Love...

Once again, I'm iBlogging from my iPhone, because I can't seem to get the internet up and running on my laptop. What I'm doing here is totally lifting a cool idea from one of my favorite bloggers, Ree Drummond (of "Pioneer Woman" fame). She did a post recently titled "I Love," where she made a list, in random order, of her favorite people and things. It got me thinking about everything I love, and I decided to make my own list. Sue me--I'm a big time copycat. Oh no, do you think Ree Drummond might sue me? I mean, isn't imitation the sincerest form of flattery and all that jazz?

Anyway, here goes. These are not necessarily in order, mind you, but I love...
