27 for my 27th

I've been meaning to make a list, The List - call it a bucket list if you must - for a while.

I envisioned it 100 items long. Perhaps one day it will grow to such a size.

For now: 27 in honor of my 27th birthday.

Happy Birthday! I hope you have had a wonderful day!

I want to make a quilt really bad. I save all of Luke's clothing (some in case we have another boy) but I save some of his clothes that remind me of just him because I want to make a quilt for him someday. One of his outfits had an 08 on the back. I thought that would be so cool on the quilt since it's the year he was born.

Anyway! All great goals. It made me want to learn to knit.

So cool! Definitely start with the SLR camera. I LOVE mine. Plus, you're gonna want some awesome shots of a large portion of those other 26 things.
