Myghty Life List

This incredibly mighty woman standing next to me (I’m the one without the tongue), Maggie Mason, is the might behind the almighty Mighty Girl, Mighty Goods and many other mighty things.  She had a brilliant idea (which she does on a fairly regular basis).  It’s called the Mighty Life List.   Her list is so damn mighty that “hundreds of readers” have caught the mighty bug and created their own.
