  1. Wonderful idea, such fun to read… wondering whether I should or even could do a similar list. Seems like a great exercise..

  2. I adore you. (But I already knew that… this list just confirms it.)

    I love that you do this… “I give people a second chance.” So do I. Everyone should.

    Wow, this is a brave thing to say… “I much rather have hard times than boring times.”

    You’re fabulous girl!

  3. Congrats on the new job opportunity!

    I loved this list! I need to do one. I started one like a year ago and posted it. but its only like 16 of 50 things because I felt the need to explain everything. which ended up being a lot of work! lol

  4. I love that you know who you are and most of all that you’re not afraid to say “This is ME, Katja” for all of us to see. Thank you for being YOU.
