Smells, to step outside after it rains and smell everything all clean and fresh, the smell of a bunch of violets just picked, the way my horse use to smell when she nuzzled my neck while being petted, the smell of a fresh peach just off the tree, and I also have 5, babies and little children, be they clean or all covered in grim from playing, to me there is nothing sweeter or more wonderful.
