Year of Lovely Things

2012 is the third annual Year of Lovely Things. Woot!

As I have written before, the idea is to make a list of simple, fun activities for each week of the year. There’s no pressure if they don’t happen, but how nice if they do! 52 activities = a treat for each week of the year.

Want to try? It’s never too late to begin. You can sign-up here.

If I write about an activity, there’ll be a link to that post from here. The activities that are completed but not blogged will just be crossed out.
