10 Things I Now Love that would Make a Younger Me Laugh

I have overheard heard myself saying things to friends that show my age and stage in life as a mom, wife, part-time employee, and homemaker. Ten years ago I would have laughed at the idea of loving some of these things, but I guess it’s part of growing up and slowly becoming more like your own mom.

Here are a few little things I now love as a 30-something:

  1. A clean & clutter-free kitchen island / countertop
  2. Freshly cleaned carpets
  3. Any uniterrupted time in the bathroom
  4. Quiet time in the kitchen to have a cup of coffee and/or make dinner
  5. An awesome programmable crockpot with a temperature gauge (life changing!!)
  6. Getting a night off from dish duty
  7. Freshly laundered sheets / clothes, dried in the sunshine
  8. Gardening
  9. Going power shopping alone (though it IS fun shopping with big sister)
  10. Enjoying a simple walk on a nature trail with my family

Do you ever catch yourself saying something that makes you feel old?! What would you add to this list?
