  2. What an awesome list. I love the last one in particular - spend less, make more, share often and love fully .. I would add give more too. Great meeting you and reading your list.

  3. Love your list. You are such a busy lady, but you always seem to enjoy it all. Wish you were over at my house to help with Christmas baking and making. I love doing it, but just need someone to help motivate me. And maybe a little more sleep!

  4. Such a lovely list. And so many that I wish to comment on, yet I'd be here all day! Ha! Visiting with your grandchildren one at a time was interesting, since you left the comment for me about having eight total. Thank you for sharing your blessings and encouragement!
