The List of Awesome

three-tiered birthday cake.

Year 5 is upon us dear readers, and this year, I took a different route when making the list of awesome.  There are 52 weeks in a year, and there are always 50 items on the list of awesome.  But in years past, I started thinking up the awesome-ness just a few weeks before the list went up.  And this year, I’ve been dating as I go.  A year of awesome.  Enjoy!
