    Awesome list! I used to have a bunch of them on my fridge, but then we got a stainless steel front and now they’re in a pile on my dining room table. *sigh*

    Glad to see you drop by West of Mars. Happy TT!

    I love quotes as well. Number two is one of my favorites! I think eight was our senior class motto as well. I know our motto is on our graduation announcements, but I haven’t read it for YEARS! 🙂

    Happy TTing!
