Hey Mich, Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment. I love this idea of creating a list of 100 wishes for the new year. What a great activity! Happy 2008 to you! You've got a great list going...Very Exciting! ~Beverly

Elizabeth said...

What fantastic wishes, such a great idea! One of my wishes would be that these all come true for you in 2008. With a sprinkle of Fairy magic: Happy New Year to you too :-) Lizzi

bella said...

May your wishes come true.
And I loved this one: surrendering to love. It brings me to a different space than striving for love.
Happy New Year to you.

Nicole said...
