30 Days of Lists - November (Day 1 - 5)

Here I am again, back to listing. I've let "busy" get the best of me lately, so this is my attempt to remedy that immediately. This month, I'm consciously deciding to give myself a daily prompt and  "list" to complete and enjoy. I'm not an organized person by any means, but I love listing for the creative process, and to see goals or cool things in my life written out.

These prompts are actually way back from my incomplete listing attempt way back in May...and then July I think? - I still have an unfinished one for September too (eeek, my bad). I typically like to complete these on paper and have something tactile, but for time saving purposes, and to keep myself accountable - i'm simply going to do this electronically.

Hope you have fun peeking into my listing world. Please feel free to play along and make your own lists. I would love to see them! Tag me @amiemariana on all social media.
