  1. So interesting that you posted this, as I’d come across your original one the other day and am finalizing my list as I write this. You have some good ideas here and actually I was inspired after reading your list to watch some documentaries over the holiday weekend. Couldn’t find Ballerina, but found another ballet inspired one.

    I may share my list w/ you for accountability! Thanks once again for the inspiration.


      1. So I completed it and have even started tackling it… (Guess I should be with week 1 of 52 down. but… need to find a way to share as this isn’t quite something I’d post in my appreciation blog. May see if WP has a password protected post view and will share that with you and a few others.

        Thanks for helping with this. 🙂


      2. It does not look like I’m able to post yet w/out doing so publicly. Have a inquiry out to WP but… may have to send. Do you have an email you are comfortable sharing? I didn’t see one listed on the blog. I’m still looking for the hidden post tho’ in the interim.
