Thanks for stopping by! 2011 will be my third year doing this kind of list, and honestly, I still find it to be a fun and happiness-generating embellishment to our year.

That is the best list! So many of them are getting me a bit excited right now.
I hope yours is the happiest year and that you get to tick so many of those things of your list. Have fun!
