101 things that make life fabulous.

Recently, I have found myself reading blogs more than anything else in my day.
I spend more hours reading into the lives of people across the world than I do sleeping.
(and this is no exageration)
I came across lists of 10 things that make them happy
I've had a list of 101 that only made it to 75 for quite some time.
As I read their every happiness wrapped up in 10, I found myself saying,
"Oh I love that" many many times.
So a little unique, a little made up, and a little stolen......
my 101 is finally finished.
