  1. Elizabeth- I'm grateful for the DNR because they do great things for green spaces in the state. I love the state parks system, a lot.

  2. – that it didn't snow last night
    – using up all my farmers market potatoes
    – my dog
    – music
    – lifelong friends
    – the Detroit temple
    – summer
    – winter because it helps me appreciate the summer
    – a family who is always, always there for me

  3. I thought DNR meant "Do not Resuscitate" and was wondering also why you loved it.

    -ann arbor in the fall
    -winter boots (not ugs)
