A Month of Faves: A Few of My Favorite Things in 2015


What are my personal bests of 2015? It’s safe to assume everything about my trip to England and Greece is high on the list, but I had some other great things come into my life this year as well. Here are some of my favorites:

Favorite Tea(s): Cranberry Blood Orange Black Tea and Hot Apple Cider Tea

Favorite Concert: Pentatonix!

Favorite Weekend: Aside from every weekend in Europe, the best weekend of the year was having friends up to my parents’ cabin in June. It was perfect.

Favorite Bookstore: Foyle’s flagship store on Charing Cross Road – five stories, four miles of shelves, 200,000 books. Amazing.

Favorite View: The Mediterranean Sea from our hotel on Poros. I will never get over this view, or forget the experience of seeing this for the first time. Life goal achieved.

    There’s so much good stuff here I don’t even know where to start. All the travel looks simply heavenly. I’d give a kidney to go back to the beach right now…even at this time of year.

      I am already plotting my next warm weather vacation 🙂

    I just printed out that soup recipe. It looks easy and sounds great!

    A great way to look back over your year! I have been so wrapped up in work stuff that it’s all I think about, so I should do this, too, to remind me of all the good things outside of work! (I’d never heard of Pentatonix, showing my age, I guess) but I especially liked seeing the photos from some of your 2015 posts again!

      It was a nice exercise to look back on the year and remember some of the best things — there was a lot of stuff I’d forgotten about!

    That view on the Mediterranean is amazing! What is the name of that hotel? Maybe I’ll get there someday

    Ah, I see Angry Orchard there…just telling the hubby tonight I wanted to try it, but we were at Sam’s Club and I didn’t want to buy a huge case of something I’ve never tasted! Lol

    And that view – wow!

      Angry Orchard is my favorite cider right now. Their seasonal flavors have been good this year.

    Ahahaha, I wonder how many people have included the Hamilton cast recording on their list of yearly faves. I definitely would! I would include it in as many categories as possible. :p

      Basically all of the bloggers I follow, for sure 🙂
