Happy Birthday Claire! I hope you have great "me" time with a good book or movie (or just pause a scene with Nathan Fillion and dream away...!) ;) Hope you are doing well! :)

A good list. I must say I have a special fondness for numbers 10 and 22, though I enjoyed them all. Happy Birthday, adopted cousin!
