Starting a few years ago, I make a wish list of things that I'd like. At first it was a little book, bound and illustrated with clipped images from catalogs, magazines, and print outs. And then last year I published the list on my blog. That worked so well that I decided to do the same this year. See it along the right side of this post?
Rich is the keeper of the list. Everyone knows to check with him and claim this or that. I purposefully make the list long so that I don't know exactly what I'm getting. And I do get some nice surprises.
Here are some highlights from this year's list:
I'll add more things as I spot them. Making the list is almost as much fun as opening the gifts. I hope my list inspires you to make one for yourself. Did your parents ever tell you in response to your begging for this or that, "You're old enough for your wants not to hurt"? It's just the opposite now. I love wanting as much as I love getting.
