I'm so glad you did this!! I really enjoyed your list.

I love gingersnaps, great quote too, and good coffee is the best start to a day. I've gotten a kick out of your increasing coffee habit.

Boo and I went to see the Siberian Tigers the last two weeks at the zoo. If you haven't been you and Cliff should go. I was in awe over their power and you can just sense the wildness there.

Take care!
