2011 Year of Lovely Things

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! 53 weeks in 2011 = one lovely thing each week.

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.
