My 'I Like' List

I wrote this for my 'about' page on my blog. The other day I read over it again and it made me happy. Might sound odd but there's something about seeing all the things you like in a list and written down. Can you relate? I like lists. It got me thinking again about making a 'life list' or rather an inspiration list. Chookoloonks wrote a really inspiring and helpful post about making the list and I highly recommend reading it. Highly. It's helpful and inspiring and I've started mine and will share it when I've completed it.

Here's my 'I like' list.
