52 Lists Project: what you would spend a million dollars on

For me, the best place for a fresh start or to begin a new project is on my birthday - the beginning of my year. So the year I was 21, I did a photo a day project (that ended up including an internship in Cleveland, meeting/dating my now-husband Adam, and going to New York to work for Vogue Knitting - so I'm retrospectively glad that I committed to documenting that particular year!), and the year I was 24, I knitted the sky (one row on a scarf each day in the color of the sky). So for 27, I'm doing lists. I'm going to roughly follow along with the book The 52 Lists Project.

A list of what I would spend a million dollars on, just for me

In the following order:

1. Pay off the house
2. Buy a new car (nothing fancy, just something with fewer miles and a little more room)
3. and an Airstream
4. Spend at least two weeks each:
     a. visiting all of my friends who have moved away/I've moved away from
     b. in England
     c. in the Pacific northwest
     d. in Colorado
     e. in New York City
     f. seeing national parks/monuments (Yellowstone, the redwoods in California, DC, the Smithsonian...)
     g. in Paris
5. Commission someone I know to create a giant piece of art for that one wall in the living room
6. Um, yeah, so I'm out of ideas (if this has to be spent on me) but still have money - let's just put the rest toward my family/charity
