  1. I love your list!!!! Beautiful goals.

    I have a smaller list called, "What will I accomplish this summer." I'm all excited about. Maybe I'll post it too. :)

  2. Hi Melanie. I came over to visit from Ann's blog.

    As a rule I'm not a list maker. But occasionally I get organized enough to make one. I usually end up liking the results when I do. You'd think that would tell me something.

  3. I'm not much of a list writer myself. That's sort of how this whole blog came to be. I like what happens when I make lists too, but they always peter out after a few days. I'm hoping having the whole blogging world watching me will increase my sense of accountability.

    Thanks for stopping in. I hope I'll see you again!
