20 Beautiful Things.

31 Aug

During the summer my friend and I exchanged letters by snail mail. One of the letters consisted of making a list of Beautiful Things, these are just a few of the things we found to be Beautiful.

1. Good Parents

2. Women who don’t mind their thigh size.

3. People who know who they are.

4. The way pavement smells after it rained.

5. Tall men.

6. Long car rides, which include time for reflection, reading, writing, and music.

7. Dancers.

8. Wind on a hot day.

9. Sunlight through tree leaves.

10. The backs of humans.

11. Discovering a new world through a book.

12. Ambitious people.

13. Marbles

14. Waking up on one’s own, not by an alarm clock.

15. Tinted glass.

16. Curly hair.

17. Freckles.

18. People who are proud.

19. Handwriting.

20. Being snowed in or having no power.

    Very nice list. I would agree on a lot of them, but 2, 6, 7,11, and 14 are my favorites.

    Thanks for the beautiful list! I may have to one myself.

    I’ve never been snowed in before. The only way I wouldn’t be able to go outside would be hurricane or tsunami…and those definitely aren’t beautiful.

      You should definitely make your own list, I’d love to see it! Being snowed in is really lovely, perhaps you should come up north during the winter to experience one!
