  1. Your ambitions sound so much greater than I could make mine sound

  2. hmmm... it's hard having almost all the same interests as your sisters... i have to agree with 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 and 11...

  3. It's kind of scary how much we have in common here. I watched black and white movies on a big outdoor screen in a park one summer in Bloomington, IN. Loved that.
    I grew pumpkin in a patch one year and they were the beautiful white ones.
    My mom and I always wanted a Swiss Family Robinson house-I love Polaroid camers, coffee houses and want to live on Santorini. Wow! I feel like a blog stalker!
