5 things Friday…

It’s that time of week where I get to post the 5 things that make me smile. You can make your own list and link up to Amanda at Gypsy Moon Quilt Co. I’ve really begun to look forward to this post each week. It is almost like a meditation to stop and think about the things that bring joy.

  1. Visiting a lake in a glacial valley on a long summer day.

2. Purple thistles that are blooming all over the fields. I love the contrast of that purple against the green.

3. Views in all directions of the Rocky Mountains. They always catch my breath (that’s Pike’s Peak way back there).

4. Anticipating getting to sleep in over a 3 day weekend and knowing that little dog of mine enjoys it as much as I do.

5. But also knowing that she’s ready for any adventure that may come up.

Have a fun and festive Independence Day weekend and stay safe!!!

  1. Hi Stephanie! Popping over from Gypsy Moon to read about what makes you happy this week! You live in a beautiful spot! Oh, to see the mountains every day would be glorious! Those doggy feet are irresistible! Enjoy your holiday weekend and extra sleep!

  2. Fantastic list!! You are right, it is like a meditation to slow down and appreciate the happy moments. It puts such a peaceful frame around my week. I noticed some purple Thistle on my walk the other morning. Isn’t it amazing how something so prickly and standoffish can also be so lovely? I hope your long weekend is fun!

  3. Your landscape photos are gorgeous! We’ve been trying to go on more scenic adventures and just be outdoors as much as possible. I love seeing all the FTF posts every Friday. It makes me happy to see others sharing things that they’ve taken the time to stop and appreciate. Thank you for linking up and happy 4th!!
