1. Messy Hair
There’s something so wonderful about those days when you wake up and your hair is delightfully messy. You know, that “I just got back from the beach and this texture in my hair is a mix of saltwater and sun” messy. Actually fixing my hair takes so long, and the days when I can just roll out of bed and it looks presentable are my favorites.
2. Sonic’s Coffee
Let’s just put it this way: Sonic’s coffee is delicious. I know, I know. You’re probably wondering how fast-food coffee can be satisfying, but trust me on this one, the coffee at Sonic is on point. It’s a super dark roast with a strong and unique flavor. I’m telling you, it’s good stuff. Every time I drink it, it reminds me why I love coffee so much in the first place.
3. Writing Poetry
Okay, y’all. Confession time: I cannot write good poems. I don’t know what it is about poetry, but I’m never happy with my final result. Nevertheless, there’s a certain solace found in the power of a few words. I like poetry because it is so personal. No two people have the exact same poetry style, and its fun to challenge yourself with something new and different. Even though it’s doubtful that anyone will ever read my poems, I love expressing my thoughts in a fresh way every once in a while.
4. Fall Mornings
Can we just take a second and celebrate the fact that Fall is here? I mean, really, who doesn’t love Fall? Pumpkin Spice Lattes, brightly colored leaves, chunky sweaters; it’s all so good. Foggy Fall mornings are my favorite days out of the entire year. I love waking up early and sitting on my back porch with a blanket, my bible, and a hot cup of coffee. The chill in the air is a reminder that seasons change, but our God will be constant forever.
5. Unexpected Friends
There’s something magical about that moment when an acquaintance turns into a friend. I think everyone knows the feeling; you share a laugh or a story and BOOM, just like that, a friendship has been formed. You realize that this person has a story similar to yours or that you have the same sense of humor or that you have family from the same state and suddenly you realize that you connect with this person. I’ve really treasured these moments lately.
