Cheaper By The Dozen...

My friend Carin tagged anyone reading her "Favorite Things" post to post 10 things that they love or love to do that are FREE. Well... I came up with 12--an even dozen--and I didn't even include the temple and chocolate!!!

1. My family means everything to me... (their love is FREE but individually they are very expensive)

2. My parents FREELY love me unconditionally and have given me every opportunity life could bestow...


3. This is my FREE panoramic view in the fall every time I run along Bountiful Blvd...


4. I can FREELY watch my children participate in their activities...



5. I lay out on the beach for FREE at least twice a year in Capistrano, California.


6. The No. Canyon YW FREELY share their love and talents with me each week...


7. I have enjoyed a FREE library card since I was 5 years old...


8. I have passed along numerous FREE copies of the Book of Mormon in the attempt to share my belief and love for the book with others...



9. I watch FREE "I Love Lucy" reruns whenever I can find them on TV. I am obsessed!!!



10. The memories of family members that are still here with me and those that have passed on run FREELY through my mind and give me much joy and happiness...


11. I FREELY give of myself as I write daily in my gratitude journals. I started the day Grayson was born over 11 years ago and have consistenly written each day...


12. The spirit of beautiful music flows FREELY through my soul and has been a major part of my life since I was 3 years old and my mom gave me my first piano lesson...


I guess the old adage is true... the BEST things in life are FREE!!!
Your turn...
