  1. I have some work to do!! Love this. I might have to put such a list up too. But your 253 to my 120-something is intimidating. And inspiring, all at the same time. Ha! I’ll catch up to you yet.

    • You will find that it will be easier for you to add to your list than it is for me to add to my own. I have no doubt that you will eventually catch me, and I really hope you do. 🙂
