This was suggested by Stepper, who said: "Make a tiny hand-made book of thirty pages, with each page listing something you love about yourself. No disclaimers. No apologies. "

While I didn't make the tiny hand-made book, I did make the list, and it was hard. Not because I couldn't think of 30 things I love about myself, but because I felt awkward telling you about them. And no disclaimers or apologies was almost impossible, because I kept wanting to explain to just exactly why I have the audacity to think that I am a good mother or handy with a camera. But nevertheless, that was my list.


  1. You are all those things and surely very more; YOU are easy to love and tremendously pretty, oh yes you are.

  2. A very nice list.

    Glad to hear about the pretty shoulders. :-)


  3. I LOVE IT!

    And I learned new things about you!
