Your list is wonderful! And how special to have your niece named after you. P.S. I think I can help you out with meeting a blog friend in person. That needs to happen!

Quite a list, my birthday is Saturday so maybe I need to compile a list for my next year.

Love that idea, being as I turned 44 earlier this year I would have to make it 44 before 45. Some of those items seem decidedly more different than others though! Good luck with all of them...you should make a list on the side of your blog and tick them off as you go!

"do something I absolutely think I can not do" - Love this one!!! :)

Jennifer Richardson said...

brilliant list!
I love your list
and send prayers for light
and lift
as you live your intentions
bit by simple bit.
Easy does it, friend.
you'll get there.
Huge joy in the journey,

You going to be one busy girl.
Love you list.
I probably won't make a list until the beginning of the year. But of course keep reading good books and taking pictures, learning more, laughing more, plus just take time to savor more (to take in the little things and notice and remember)

Anita said...

Wonderful list! Looks lke a lot of fun stuff to do.
