Oscar Hammerstein II and Richard Rodgers
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens;Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens;Brown paper packages tied up with strings;These are a few of my favorite things.Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels;Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles;Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings;These are a few of my favorite things.Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes;Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes;Silver-white winters that melt into springs;These are a few of my favorite things.When the dog bites,When the bee stings,When I'm feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things,And then I don't feel so bad.

A few of my favorite things:
The smell of a crushed succulent leaf
Chocolate pudding
Greeting cards
Proper grammar (well, when it’s necessary :) )
Photography
Knowing people are happy
Bath robes
Colorful socks
Blueberries
Little Anne’s wagging tail
The smell of dryer sheets
The lake
Having a girls night where all we do is… nothing
Crafts
Yoga
Fresh tomatoes
Smiles
Chapstick
Handouts and packets
Feeling strong
Old trees
Children
Rain
Fresh flowers
Checking off to-do list boxes

I love your favorite things Stepharoni....May I add one or two?
How about....the sound and smell of rain in July......The smell of a pig (yes, a pig) right before it goes into the show ring...... and fresh clean sheets on the bed. I love you. mom
