I like lists, too.

I love this list. (I love making lists.) It inspires many memories, makes me thankful to not have experienced some things, and gives me things to look forward to. Grabbed at Back Home to Rome, which has been a favorite as of late. She doesn't post 8 times a day so it's easy to keep up with it and just as important to me, it's aesthetically pleasing!
