I Say List It. List it Good.

Oh, look, it’s 2012.  Time for the obligatory year-in-review post, full of pithy sentiment, crafted to make you stop and think, and put forth in an effort to change the world, one person at a time.

Heh.

Or, in keeping with the tradition I began last year, I’m going to paint a 12 make a list.

Last year, I listed things that annoy me. This year, just for a change of pace, I’m going to list things I value and appreciate.  Things allowing me health and comfort and/or things I am otherwise fond of or drawn to for no particular reason.

    Great list! This is really weird … I have the same Vintage elf collection. They used to be on my Grandparents’ tree (the Atlanta Grandparents). Now they are on mine.
