I Love...

I love bath time and soapy babies and the smell of lavender shampoo.  
And summertime storms and hugs from friends.  
I love cold glasses of milk and red, ripe strawberries.  
And books about big, hungry bears who like to eat them.  
I love wagon rides and spotting the ducklings in the pond.  
And turquoise toenail polish and brightly colored sandals.  
I love the sound of my children laughing when they share a private joke.
And peanut butter smudged on chubby, toddler cheeks.  
I love fluffy, "cotton ball" clouds and the bright pink buds on my rose bush.   
And cinnamon chip muffins and necklaces that jangle.  
I love lazy, Sunday evenings and the hum of the AC.   
 And snuggling my little ones.  
And being happy 
being me.
