100 Things I Love

Day 45 Outtake

One of my mini-goals this year is to complete a 100 Things List. I've been meaning to do this for AGES, and for some reason, I've never managed to do it. That's why I'm really, really keen to do one this year.

Now, in honour of Valentine and our 52WoC Task #49, I thought I'd create this 100 Things That I Love List. Since my husband, kids, our families, friends, God, and such are all MUSTS, I thought I'd make them a "given" in my Love List. And, of course, there are some "private loves" (heh!) that I might not be brave enough to share here. So, I really have a 100+ list!

Now, here we go, in no particular order (and just because I love an activity, it doesn't mean I'm any good at them!)...

  1. creative writing
  2. books / reading
