    Thunder and peas fresh-picked are two of my favorite things as well. Enjoy! And thanks for the reminder about little things.

    What a great list! I love my Alba face moisturizer, but prefer Kiss My Face lip balm. 🙂 The Help and Simplify are both on my TBR lists.

    I am happy to see that you mentioned rain and storms. My parents said that there were quite a few including some hail.
