77 Things About Me...

I saw Brienne's list of 77 things a while back and loved it.  I know her pretty well (YAY!) but learned some amazingly fun and insightful things while reading her List...and it got me thinking.  What would I put on my List?  What hasn't already been shared?  What fantastic things would my friends and family learn about me?  NEVER did I think that I could learn something new about myself.  During the writing of The List, which took about a day to complete, I had numerous insights, discovered new passions and unlocked a few deep seeded longings.  Read on, enjoy, and if there is anything that we share, let me know... ;)
