It's the little things header


My Country, by Walangkura Napanangka

It’s been a really productive first week of the year. And while I didn’t get to cross off that many items from my new to do list for 2011, I did get to tick off a small handful of really big ones. So, needless to say, I feel like the year’s off to a fantastic start! I have a lot to be thankful for this week.
