Things I Savor in Life

I love it when an author, designer or favorite blogger shares a "fav list". Those are always so fun and interesting to read. You find out a lot about a person reading their "fav list". I was inspired to do this list after reading Shannon Ables "Why Not... Savor Life?

Other lists that I enjoy are "Ways to Uncomplicate Your Life" and "100 Ways to Be Elegant" which has been an A Home for Elegance favorite (it has about 500 hits since 2014!).

Below is my "savor list". I hope you enjoy it and that it inspires you to begin your list today.

1. Fresh flowers every week at home and at the office.

3. My daughter's giggle.

4. My roasted chicken and red potatoes (dinner favorite)!

5. French bread

6. Polished nails

7. Kitten heels

  1. You are right, you can tell so much about a person when you read the 'lists'. You enjoy simple things and have wonderful things you hope to do one day. More importantly, you love your life and those in it. That's why 'we' enjoy your posts. Thank you for sharing.


    1. Thank you so much for your response! It's funny that you should say that "I love my life". Honestly and truly I have been making that my life's goal, to enjoy my own life and not worry about what someone else is doing in theirs.

      A lot of times we get so caught up in the "my horse is bigger than your horse game" that we forget to take note and inventory of our own lives. I am no longer playing that game. I am going to love my own life! Thank you for reading!!!

  2. Thanks for sharing . I am going to look into some of your listed items
