I found this fabulous idea while clicking around in webland. I got there from here. I find such inspiring things while just aimlessly clicking. Of course, some days this is just too great a way to procrastinate.

Want to play? Here are the rules....copied directly from Nonsuch book blog cause I reaaaaally should be in the shower and getting ready to go to the Pumpkin Patch. I hope that's okay.

Are you ready to Pay It Forward??? Here are the rules:

The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and pay it forward.

This is how it works: I agree to send something fun, cute, & nice to the first three blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn, those three will post this information and pick three people they want to send something to and on goes the giving!

If you are interested in participating, be one of the first three blog owners to leave a comment! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. Just a gift that will make the person smile and really brighten their day.

Again, if you'd like to join in be one of the first THREE people to leave me a comment with your email on this
particular post. You have to PROMISE that you will then post about this on your blog, link to me, and then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog. I hope people like this idea. It's a small way to bring a smile to someone's face and little thank you to all who are faithful readers and wonderful web friends!!!

Wow. What an incredible week. No, I haven't posted any of my "week in the life" pictures here. Simply because I don't know how yet. ;) But I have been very diligent about taking my camera everywhere and taking tons of pictures. I can't wait to put it all together. Thanks so much, Ali, for doing this right alongside all of us this week.

I can't even tell you how much it's opened my eyes. It didn't just show me "my life right now", it showed me what to cherish, but also what I'd like to change. I realized I've been a bit insular in the last year and don't get out a ton socially. I'd like to change that. It also opened my eyes wide to see my surroundings, my home, and what I like and what I don't like so much. And I've already begun to make some baby steps toward sprucing up what I'm not liking.
