    Wow, what an amazing list!


  3. I’d say we’re quite similar. I’m not a cat person, I don’t like cheese, can’t do ballet and I’d LOVE to get carded; otherwise my list could look very similar. Now I’m craving a chocolate croissant!


    1. Haha! That’s awesome. Thanks for sharing Tanya.


  4. #67- clean bed sheets. That would make my list too! It’s such a wonderful feeling. I find myself craving chocolate after reading this list….:)


    1. Haha.. I actually abstained myself from including more chocolate related things.


  5. Ballet – I love ballet. That’s a gorgeous picture.


  6. Developing photos in a darkroom – you’re gonna think I’m crazy but I love the smell and ambiance. Sweet potato fries are the best! Garlic Naan – never tried it but my husband makes Naan (it’s waaay better than any Naan I’ve ever tasted) so next time he makes it, I’ll ask him to add in some garlic.


    1. I don’t think you’re crazy , and yes, tell him to add butter and garlic :p so good. I’m jealous you get homemade naan 😉
