Beautiful thoughts, Tasha!
Thanks for the smiles!
I agree 150% on the clean linens......I LOVE the first night of sleeping with freshly laundered sheets.

Here's a few more for me:
223. Spending the day with your best girlfriends - laughing and talking, and just enjoying each others' company. Just being girls!

224. Hearing from someone that you have been a positive influence in their life.

225. Hearing my mom say that she is proud to call me her daughter.

226. Going to DISNEY WORLD
(did I mention that is where I am going for my Honeymoon in March?)
