"The Little Things Give You Away"*

Sometimes it's nice just to think about the little things in life that bring you joy. Here are some of mine:

My favorite tea has a kick-ass name: Black Dragon Pearl (I always want to add "Coming to theaters this summer" after I say it and then do a perfect round-house kick). Plus the tea leaves come packed as balls, which only adds to my amusement.

Thunderstorms never stop being scary/exciting.

When it comes to my indoor co-ed soccer team, the "that's what she said" joke never gets old...ever!

The spin-cycle on my Scandinavian dryer (maybe we're somehow related!) sounds like a plane taking off. This one's a double-edged sword because it can also be when I'm trying to watch TV or listen to music, or you know, have a conversation or something...but it's still pretty cool to have it sound like an airplane is taking off in your laundry room.

When my little niece and nephew say the word "rude," it sounds like they're saying "wooed." And they're still young enough to always be happy to see me.

My older nephew still likes hanging out with me!

I buy Land O' Lakes American cheese from the deli and the package is labeled LOL cheese. How could you not smile about that?

I'm always wonderfully surprised at how tasty food is when you grow/pick it yourself.

And this is only a sampling of the little things in my life. It's interesting how many of them are about food...maybe I'm just hungry. Oh, and in case you were curious, my soccer team won again yesterday (we crushed Danbury 6-1), so we're in the finals next Saturday.
