    Printing this!
    I’ve been attempting to compile my own list and lets just say I got stuck around 5 or 6 things.

    “6. Send yourself a love letter. Snail mail style. Only luxe stationary will do.” You can also write a letter like that to your mother, father or loved one. I did that recently with my mother and she was so happy. Bringing happiness to others generally brings you happiness too.

    “61. Get a juicer already! Start with this stunning combination: carrot, beet, and ginger.” I’m definitely going to try that recipe, I haven’t yet. By the way, what juicer do you use?
