*I'm enjoying The Lovely Bones and I think we'll definitely have a lot to discuss in February. I'm glad so many of you are up for the discussion. I always feel a little vulnerable when I throw an idea out there like that. I'll be posting reminders in the coming weeks about it.
*After seeing this gorgeous picture of ribbon candy, I announced to Jay that not only had I never had any, but I had never even seen or heard of it. Because he's awesome (have I mentioned that?), he surprised me with a box. Most of it's gone now so you could say I enjoyed it, but I do think it's probably a dentist's nightmare.
*I've really been wanting to share the Day Zero Project with you all. I first heard about it from Ducky and I think it's a really smart alternative to the whole New Year's resolution thing. The general idea is that you make a list of 101 tasks to be completed (or changes to make), and you have 1001 days to make your goals. I love this idea and would sign up myself but my main goal of not spending money/paying down debt/getting the hell out of Florida is somewhat all consuming. If I were to sign up, all of my tasks/goals would have to be of the free variety, which is possible I guess, but a challenge I might not be up for.
*One last link I wanted to mention is Words to Shoot By. Every few weeks a group of photographers are given a word and they have to shoot a triptych of photos showing their interpretation of the word. Very pretty and very inspiring.
