Favorite Websites


I love lists.  Some people hate them, but I love them! I love writing all kinds of lists and find ways to include them in every part of my life. For example, whenever I have to give toasts (at my brother’s wedding, at my rehearsal dinner, etc.), I give my toast as a list. “Top ten reasons why I love my husband” “Top ten reasons why Katie (sister-in-law) will be a good wife for Giora (brother).” I also find to-do lists incredibly gratifying and satisfying. I have to-do lists in a special planner and journal (moleskine [2]) for various things. “To do Monday” “Want list for Fall” “Things to do in NYC in the winter,” etc….They remind me of what I need to accomplish, and I also love the feeling of crossing something off of a list – sometimes, I write a basic thing like “shower” on a to-do-list because it helps me manage my time. HA! No joke!

Even months (and years) later, I like to look back at my lists.  They serve as a reminder of times past –  what restaurants I wanted to go to that year, what I wanted to name our son, etc…to me, lists serve as a low-effort diary. They tell a story of what I liked THEN, what I did, and who I was.

So here is my first set of lists for the Josie Girl Blog: my favorite websites. The below is a set of sites I look at throughout the week, some for important information, others as a mindless escape.  Take what you want from them, and please share your random favorite websites with me. I would love to know where you shop, surf, and spend time perusing.
