The 99 Things I Love in 10 Minutes Challenge

99 things I love

I used to focus on the “love” topic more years ago, but once I redesigned my blog and shifted the content strategy a bit, I started talking less about it.

So I was excited when I read this post on Spin Sucks¬†about the 99 Things I Love in 10 Minutes challenge because it’s a great opportunity to bring that topic back.

The challenge is to set a timer for 10 minutes and list as many things you can possibly think of that you love, with the goal being to list 99 things in 10 minutes. Here’s my list:

  1. MAL
  2. My boys, Nolan and Evan
  3. My dad and brother
  4. All my extended family
  5. My friends
  6. My job and work I do for clients
