  1. I love your list. There are so many things you've done I'd like to do (visit the Grand Canyon) and so many thing you haven't I'd like to do, too.

    These kinds of post are great because you can learn so much about a person! :)

    I hope you're having a great weekend!

  2. When I read blogs, I sometimes say that I'm going to do whatever the blog is about - I now have such a long list of things I want to do, I don't think I shall ever do them! Great list!
