  1. Hello...big fan o'lists...right here :) Great collection...the one thing that popped right out at me, is the fact that I can see what a nurturing person you are, so many things on the list include seeing success in your loved one's lives!!!!! Sweetness, indeed. After scanning your list, I realized that I still want to learn how to play the piano (not to an expert level or anything but enough to play a few pretty songs :))
