A Life in Lists: One

I love making lists. Seriously. I will make lists of nonsense until my fingers bleed, I don’t know why. I’ve got scribbled notes all over the place of random lists of books, movies, things to do, etc etc. So, as a part of my weekly blogging, I’ll be sharing them.

Inspiration for a little bit of list making:

Hula Seventy is the ultimate list maker.
Liz’s “Adventure Guide” is absolutely amazing & such a fun idea.
Viv has a hella great list of 52 things for her 2012.
Listography is such a lovely site and app. I update mine on my phone all the time.
“32 New Things” by Yes and Yes is  a great source of ideas.

My first list. . .
