THE LIST

Ahhhh! The List…it’s sounds big and important I know….but really it is here to remind me to do the stuff I love and try new things. It is by no means  a static list (and right now it is a brief – off the top of my head kinda list) …things will be added and crossed out. At least this list will be tidy…you know usually a typical ‘to do list’ is messy, things crossed out and added. But whether scribbled on scrap paper or compiled neatly on my blog, lists definitely work! Viva la LIST!!
