Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, July 15, 2011

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

My new vintage cake plate (found at a local garage sale by my eagle eye husband)...

Catching up with friends... bloggy friends!  Jacksta had the lovely Claire from Gracious Goodness over to visit earlier this week and it was so lovely to catch up with her while she and her hubby are on their summer holiday from Korea.  Pity it's the middle of a wet and cold winter here in New Zealand at the moment.  Claire is super lovely!!

Loving cooking Purple Heart Potatoes...

Loving great memories.  Recently realized it's been one whole year since we visited Israel!  We had such an amazing time (you can read about our journey here or watch the clip below).

Loving that my bearded hubby has almost recovered from having the flu (I did offer him these but he was too 'real-sick' to want them)...

Link Love: Loving the music of Harvest Bashta (free download from NoiseTrade).

Loving my big boy and all the fun and games that come with growing up...

Loving New Zealand...
