    What a cool list. I know a friend who would appreciate this list so i will make sure to share it with her.

  • Aww these are great! I remember all of these except the last two, and I’d probably love the last one - I love my dog and hiking the Appalachian Trail, so I’d probably enjoy Ellie’s Long Walk!
