More Favorites

As promised, a few more of my favorites, in no particular order because I am a random kind of girl that way! The waterfall pictured is in the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. My husband and I hiked to the bottom. The heavens provided a deluge of rain and we almost slid to the bottom! Well, back to the favs...
  • waterfalls (obviously)
  • getting caught in the rain, drying off and snuggling
  • hiking in the mountains
  • The Blue Ridge Parkway
  • sunset in the mountains or at the beach or anywhere, actually
  • Luray Caverns
  • wind in my hair and the sun on my face
  • my Boxster with the top down
  • labyrinths and mazes
  • botanical gardens

  • roadside picnics
  • the whoosh a diet coke makes when you open it and the very first sip!
  • capturing cool photos
  • landscapes blanketed by snow
  • sparklers
  • outdoor concerts
  • any beautiful coastline
  • azaleas, rhododendrons, gardenias, daisies
  • poppies - especially the field of them that was near my Oma's house in Germany
  • good chocolate, no that is not an oxymoron, some chocolate is better than others

  • making holidays special for my family and my friends
  • finger paints
  • bubbles
  • doodling and cartoon drawing and attempting to draw "serious" stuff
  • castles and castle ruins (would like to see some in countries other than Germany)

I am in a vacation sort of mood today. I think maybe a mini-trip somewhere is in order! My friend TeLene and I attempted to ride with the top down not to long ago (November) We had to turn the heat on and laughed all the way home.

I agree with persistentillusion. It does look nice to be you. I'm sure enjoying reading your favs and looking at the pictures...hmmm, and I'm feeling a bit of wanderlust myself.

I love the waterfalls, we have some beautiful ones here... well, when they're not frozen! I didn't take the picture of the temple, but it's my favorite I've seen yet. We went to the open house and it was so pretty inside, it's really modern and has a "wheat" theme, so there is wheat trimmed into the stained windows. It's really cool!

I really enjoyed reading your favorites. It made me think of my favorites.
I did notice you have me linked as blues and pinks, the correct title is "blues and pink". There is only one pink in this household. :)
