i am a big fan of lists, and i blame it on my mother. when i was a wee lass, i acted as her secretary, scrawling lists on scraps of paper that were lying around the house. what to buy at the market, who to invite to the party and gifts to give at christmas. since i moved out, she makes those lists on her own and, now, so do i. darling daniele has a site dedicated to the best kind of lists: happy things! it will make you smile, i’m sure; it made me.
