My Favorite Things

A wise man named George Washington once said "It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one." And since my only excuses for not posting recently are silly things like school and work and distractions, I will not mention them as excuses. ;)
Anyway, in order to somewhat make up for the absence of late, I'm going to do two posts in two days. Which is sheer and utter madness for me, but I guess I'll call this warm-up for my soon-to-be Advent Calendar! (Yikes!  I mean Yay!:)
So I started brainstorming things I'm thankful for, for a Thanksgiving post, but all I could think about were the lyrics to "My Favorite Things" from the Sound of Music. And at first I was like "come on now Abby, be serious!", but then I thought "well, I am thankful for pretty much everything in that song,and shall dedicate entire posts to them!" So in case you were wondering what a conversation in my head looks like, there you have it. :) 

My Favorite Things

Morgan Colors- Buckskin Morgan Horses:

Cream-colored ponies

...Apple, pear and sour-cherry strudel...Nothing beats the crunch you hear when cutting into a strudel – it's the promise of great things to come.:

And crisp apple strudels

Scrumptious winter colors in that black harness, gold bells, caramel brown coat of fur, frosty blonde mane, and cheery red barn. Inspired winter color palette.:

Door-bells and Sleigh-bells

Herb-Speckled SpƤtzle and Pork Schnitzel.  Do they make this in a gluten-free version?:

And schnitzel with noodles

Supermoon With Canada Geese:

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings

These are a few of my favorite things.
