    Hey Sis~
    How many things do I need to have on my list? Can they be things that I have already done but were always on my list? Can you tell that I think I need a list?

      Wendy – have as many as you want! Just start a list and add to it as more things come up. I’ve added a couple that I’ve already done. At first I felt like that was cheating but then I changed my mind because they’re things I always wanted to do so they count even if there wasn’t a list in place before.

      I want to scroll through this all day. I love it.

      My plan for the 365 photo project was to document our first year of marriage but I’m really not at the level I want to be to take pictures everyday so I’ve pushed it out a bit while I learn how to handle a camera.

    You ran a Marathon and didn’t you host Thanksgiving?

    I guess I should cross out a couple more. My idea of hosting Thanksgiving is not just having people over for a potluck, but actually making everything as well and having a sit down dinner. I think I’m a couple of years (and a new kitchen) away from crossing that off.

    I’m copying you and making a list of my own.
