  1. Love your list, very inspiring. you are the first person (out o the lists I have read thus far) tonlist vanilla instead of chocolate haha. Love that!!

    • Thanks Christy! I’m shocked I didn’t think of chocolate either! Lol! I love vanilla flavoring in coffee and baking, which is how that ended up on the list. Mmm I’ll have to remember chocolate for next year lol ;)

    TWINKLE LIGHTS! Yes! One of the things I love best about the next few weeks! In January, I’m always sad to see them go….

    Did you really write this list all at once, stream-of-consciousness style? It’s lovely.

    • Thanks Rachael! I agree, twinkle lights should be year round! I wrote this list over three days..once in the middle of the night, I was awake and had to add to it, lol. But yes it was mostly stream of consciousness as it came to me. :)

    I dig your style and love your concluding picture. I also love how many abstract concepts you included (that I *should* have included :) ). It is so incredible to be grateful for things like ‘faith’ and ‘kindness’ that really cannot be seen in any physical form save for certain actions. Thank you for your stream of consciousness list. :)
