This week’s Monday Listicles topic over at The Good Life is quotations – but before I list some of my favorite quotes, I have the honor of telling you who is picking next week’s Listicles topic: me!
big huge fan of Stasha’s Listicles – her weekly link-up gives my blog a great starting point each week, as well as a little bit of direction and inspiration – and through it I’ve met all kinds of supportive bloggers. I’m an even bigger fan of Stasha herself, because she is supportive, a great mom, and kind (and a talented photographer…have you seen her new business, Stasha B. Photography?)
So for next week’s Listicles…
<insert drum-roll here…>
…the topic is: your Family Tree.
I’m a writer, so I love excavating the past and finding out about who my relatives were. I love hearing about other people’s family histories, and what they’ve uncovered. So break the skeletons out of your family closet, or the trophies, or whatever interesting tidbits you’ve learned, or secrets you’ve uncovered about any of your near or distant ancestors, and put ‘em in next week’s Listicle! (-:
Without further delay, here are some really good quotes I’ve heard recently that are worthy enough to pass along.
Further Delay: On the topic of quotations, the most popular site on my blog – Stuff Ella Says – has been updated with lots of new wisdom from my six-year-old who is channeling her inner granny, so check it out.
