If anyone knew the secret to mouldy grout they would be a very very wealthy person.

So many things, and many of them I agree with.

What a challenge....

Great list. I love Tassie too, I grew up there. I like how yo wrote it too, not like 1 2 3 etc... It's more "dreamy", I dunno, if that makes sense?

Anyways, great post! :)

A wonderful list.

And yes, if you learn that secret to being a morning person, let me know. Someone once told me it was having kids. Hmmmm. Seems like a big commitment to get a few extra hours a day. :o)
