  1. Alot of your “likes” I “like” myself. This is my first time here, I’ll be back, I like what you have to say. Take care.

  2. Good grief! I’m not sure my brain could come up with 100 likes or dislikes. One of my favorites you mentioned was clean, soft sheets 🙂 I LOVE crawling into bed right after the sheets have been washed, snuggling down into the fresh-scented pillow, and drifting off to dreamland. If I had the energy to wash my sheets and remake my bed every day, I would!

  3. what a lovely idea…

    i hope this becomes a forever growing list.

    but reading this, just discovering this ever so made me smile.

    something i might have to make notes of too… just to create all the more smiles.

    thank you for a lovely lovely read!
