the Magic Wand

the Magic Wand…a.k.a. Life List.

I’ve had a “Life List” for awhile now and it has been scribbled on post-it notes around my office and bedroom just waiting for a place to call “home.” This blog seemed like an OK place for the time being and serves as a platform to capture and even write about the wishes that I have granted myself with the help and encouragement of others! You can read about my adventures under the categories–“Wish Granted”, “Life List”
