  4. When you finally remember the fastest part of a song.
    The crackling sound of a book when you’re the first to open it.
    Waking up in the middle of the night realizing you still have more time to sleep.
    Running through a door the second before it closes.

    I’m a mad LEGO fan, so how about:

    You’re searching and searching for that tiny piece. The brick you search for always seems to elude you, until…you see it, at the bottom of the oversize Tupperware container you keep your collection in. You reach in, pinch it between two fingers, and draw it out! Triumphant, you place it on whatever you’re building, and go back to looking for more bricks.

    Setting up your place creatively and resourcefully from thrift shops and yard sales. Taking the precious pieces with you on MANY relocation b/c in your heart you felt they were pricelessly sentimental no matter what others may say…then one day walking into an antique store and seeing that several of your under $5.00 pieces are priced at $150+, and you’ve learned you can pat yourself on the back and you do… Awesome!
