Today this blog post is sponsored by the letter “L.”
But first a big thank you to Myndi Shafer for this Lovely “L” prompt. Be sure to hop on over to her site and take a look at the super cool cover of her upcoming debut SHRILUGH.
Now onto L.
Ten Things I Love that Begin with the Letter L.
1. LONG WALKS
Now I know that LONG WALKS totally sounds like I’m starting a cheesy dating ad, but it’s not like I said ON THE BEACH.
Although I do enjoy a nice walk on the beach. However, I don’t know anything about dating ads.
I actually found my husband via:
2. LAMBDA CHI ALPHA
This is not MY tattoo, but I see it everyday.
Fraternities were the old-fashioned way of dating. Well the way it was done BEFORE the internet but sometime AFTER Pa Ingalls gave permission to Almanzo Wilder to court Laura.
At least in my experience.
Lambda Chi + Love = 19 years of marriage (this week!)
Way before we got married, before my now hubby told me he loved me, he joked around with the “Olive Juice” bit for a couple of days. We laughed as he mouthed the words olive juice–which if you don’t already know, looks like you’re saying, I love you.
But then he got all super serious and actually said, I love you. After all that joking, it was quite shocking.
And yea, awesome (if not fantastically cheese-tastic).
4. THE LENNINGS
The Lennings have a song that is the number one played song on my current WIP’s (work in progress) playlist– 226 plays so far. It’s a cover of You’re the One That I Want. I know it originally from the Grease soundtrack –a movie I ADORED when I was 9 years old. In fact I have a cassette of myself reading the entire screenplay out loud. Now as interesting as that sounds, I give you the Lennings’ acoustic cover instead.

I’m a big fan of ladybugs. They make me feel hopeful.
Sign me up for laughter ANYTIME.
Hearty laughter is a good way to jog internally without having to go outdoors.
“Ah coffee. The sweet balm by which we shall accomplish today’s tasks.”
~ Holly Black, Ironside: A Modern Faery’s Tale
I love libraries. I’ve worked in them, I go through my local library’s drive thru at least once a week and I inhale deeply after I pull up and they slide back the window. I even took a detour on a family road trip once to show my kids the library I used to hang out in when I lived in Indiana.
I feel like I’m related to libraries.
Why lemons? Other than things like lemon bars and lemon meringue pie, lemons represent that oh so zesty point of view about transforming attitude.
“When life hands you lemonade, don’t try to make lemons”
― Vince Guthrie
And last, but not least:
“Life is short, Break the Rules.
Forgive quickly, Kiss SLOWLY.
Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably
And never regret ANYTHING
That makes you smile.”
― Mark Twain
Gotta love it.
What about you? Any “L” things that you love?
