What are the things that you cannot live without? What means the world to you? What makes you feel alive? You wouldn't trade *insert your response here*

Things money *can* buy you and are worth every last penny:

*Snuggly soft flannel sheets
*That one favorite mug that you want to wrap both hands around and sip your hot tea from
*Big, fluffy bath *sheets*.... a towel is just.not.the.same
*Parchment paper for baking and for roasting veggies
*Expensive chocolate
*Gourmet popcorn and a hot air popper
*Yummy, crusty bread--I like rosemary, olive oil and garlic
*Homemade pizza dough
*Body scrubs that smell good enough to eat
*Ditto with candles...Bath & Body works has a mint chocolate chip candle that is to die for
*400 plus thread count sheets to dress your bed in when it's time to pack away the beloved flannel
*Linen Water
*A beautiful journal
*Good music
*Books that move you
*A perfect lipstick shade
*A deluxe pedicure with a paraffin dip
*Sexy underwear
*Black and white photo's of your favorite people, places, adventures, captured candids
*A favorite pair of jeans
*A vacation

Things money *can't* buy or wonderfully free, free, free stuff:

*True, heartbreaking, tender, sweet love
*A breathtaking view of the mountains, the ocean, the skyline, etc
*A quiet, get lost in your thoughts, foggy morning on the beach
*Your childs arms wrapped around your neck, whispering, i love you, mommy
*Waking next to the person you want to spend the rest of your life with
*Falling hopelessly, head over heels in love
*Watching your children sleep
*Seeing the world through your children's eyes
*Getting so lost, so caught up in a good read
*There is no other joy in this world than that of the first time you hear your baby's cry
*Nothing like the smell of a baby's sweet head
*Cuddles, snuggles, hugs, kisses...
*Laughter, silliness, smiles,
*Inside jokes
*A mutually shared, longing look from across the room
*A hike in the mountains
*A film that makes you laugh out loud, brings you to tears, changes your mind...
*That old book smell
*Love letters
*The way your heart beats faster when he/she walks into the room
*Your baby's tiny hand resting on your breast, looking up into your eyes while she nurses
*A walk in the rain
*The smell of a campfire
*Your baby's first wobbly steps, first "real" smile, first laugh
*Tears of joy
*A heartbreaking goodbye
*That lump you get in your throat before telling someone that you love them
*Compassion, understanding, empathy, tenderness, sensitivity, sympathy....
*Holding hands
*Sunshine warming your skin
*Running through a sprinkler
*Seeing a rainbow
*A wish come true
