…my nose and eyelashes.
This line comes from “My Favorite Things”, a song featured in the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music. Whether you prefer the original, sung by Julie Andrews, or the recent Kelly Clarkson version, the song is a classic.
What are your favorite things about today? Your list might be quickly jotten down as a flurry of thoughts fill your mind, or you might dig deeper and give the matter much consideration.
Perhaps you were tickled by the lopsided snowman visible from your front window. Maybe you are greatful for the gloved hand that holds yours as you walk in the snow. If you got to leave work early, you might be glad that do you did not have to drive in the worst of the weather, or grateful for a few hours to yourself. Are you a northerner, “transplanted” to the south? You might be thanking your lucky stars that you no longer have to pay crazy plowing fees, or spend a whole day digging out.
When it comes to living in Apex, NC, I’m glad to be living on a cul-de-sac with great neighbors. I’m glad I can garden nearly all year. I appreciate the reasonable pace of living. While I enjoy a snow day here and there, I love our warm climate ever more. It’s great to be able to be out and about almost all the year and I love that my husband and son can golf all year round.
If each of us could rewrite “My Favorite Things” to highlight our favorite things about Apex, Wake County, and the RTP area, what might the lyrics celebrate?
