Self-Portrait Challenge ~ Pop Art & 100 Things I Love Today

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

This pic is for the Self-Portrait Challenge ~ Pop Art. You know, I feel like I'm on the cover of a 1970s romance comic, which is kind of cool! And I stumbled across this meme at Hundred and One, who got the idea from Jennifer. Don't you love the way inspiration travels? And how perfect is it that this came up right after 20 Things I Don't Like! What do you love?

100 Things I love Today

Justin, my family, DANCING, wind, raspberries, being my own boss, English breakfast tea, Starbucks coffee, the way my husband makes me laugh, memories of our honeymoon, seeing someone find their way, experiencing a city by walking, a great haircut, Thai yoga massage, NIA, taking a great photo, storytelling, performance poetry, festivals, when people are who they are, jewellery, WHITE FLOWERS, creating an experience, throwing parties, going to the spa, working with people, planning & organizing, self-reflection, painting coloured backgrounds in my art journal, blogging, connecting with my tribe, celebrating, CHAMPAGNE, theatre, feeling beautiful, the scent of Aveda products, lively conversations, things that get me thinking, IDEAS, being near the water, trees, that colour when a white flower is really almost green, the feel of bread dough, SPARKLE, compassion, people that make a difference in the world (and that means you), going to the movies on a weekday afternoon, POPCORN, pedicures, feeling safe, a shower with great water pressure, feeling connected to the Universe, synchronicity, creating memories, experiencing life, the sacredness of sharing our woes, OUR RED COUCH, a comfy bed, soft sheets, white kitchens, having our own laundry, the ease of public transit, getting lost in a book, sci fi, fantasy and epic films, MAGIC, Canadian literature, RIVER ROCKS, stories of transformation, heroes, GLAMOUR, perfectly applied black eyeliner, sunglasses, cast parties, the excitement of performance, having a moment's peace, NESTING, puttering, fresh-squeezed orange juice, a rainy morning when I can sleep in, fresh pineapple, BEING BAREFOOT, Ontario peaches in August, going to the cat show at the Ex, completed to do lists, clicking with someone, movies about inspirational teachers, dance movies, fashion, creating, a fully stocked kitchen, HALLOWEEN, taking classes, FEELING ALIVE, dressing up, ritual, going for walks, interior design, the smell of fresh-cut grass, when things work out, presents

Wow! what a great idea. I might use it too. 100 things is a lot. I have 100 things that I love, but you know I can't type (I remember you writing you are a fast typist)or spell so it would take me hours to do. Maybe I will hand write it in my journal today.

Love your list.
Love you!
XOXO
