These are a few of my favorite things...

"My Favorite Things" is a song sung by Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music. This song was also one of the first songs I learned during voice lessons as a child.

Anyway, this song always seems to play in my head during the holidays so I thought I'd list some of my favorite things...

1. Hot tea (green, chai, peppermint with a hint of chocolate, ginger, lavender)
2. Breakfast
3. The lovely scent of pumpkin, vanilla, hazelnut, and coffee
4. Breakfast and lunch with Derek at either Panera Bread or a cafe in Boulder City
5. Late night dinners with Derek
6. Brownies
7. Chocolate Covered Strawberries
8. Pumpkin Pie
9. Molten Chocolate Cake
