52 Lists Project: the most beautiful things you've ever seen

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 the most beautiful things that I have ever seen

This was harder than anticipated - perhaps in part because I see beauty everywhere

1. Light in a dark place
2. Someone talking about or engaging in their passion
3. Anywhere in nature that the Golden Spiral appears
4. Bats at dusk
5. The intense concentration of a small child
6. When you think something is a leaf or a flower, and it turns out to be a butterfly
7. Mountains that look like clouds
8. Toothless baby smiles
9. A new knitter's first stitches
10. Love in action
