7. My short haircut!

8. A wall of south-facing windows

9. Tastespotting

10. Aldi

11. The lyrics of “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”:

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small; (I love singing in the subjunctive!)
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

12. That I get to serve women as they give birth — WOW.

13. friends who have held up my arms the past few weeks

14. Our relatively new bamboo floor — no more carpet in the dining room!
