That was only half the list, however! There were a few folks left off that initial list, and I wanted to share them here!
Dave Bruno is considered the father of the minimalist movement to many folks. His book The 100 Thing Challenge was the first to challenge folks to live with less. His blog Guy Named Dave has detailed Dave's year-long experiment in living with less, and continues to document a joyfully and thoughtfully simple life.
Elsie's blog A Beautiful Mess is followed by millions. Her projects and vintage shop point to her seemingly charmed life - married to a musician, living in a hip and beautiful town, and sharing her life with grace and maturity.
I've followed Elsie's online world for years, and watched her life grow and expand in amazing ways!
Gala Darling writes about radical self love - embracing and snuggling every little bit of yourself in order to love your life fully and live wildly. And yes, Gala Darling is her real name. I've learned so much from this lovely woman over the years, and would love to repay her back with a hat!
More than just a movie star and pretty face, Jessica Alba is mom to two gorgeous little girls and has started an Earth-friendly diaper company as a way to take care of the planet in style. She inspires with her effortless beauty and style, and we love her diapers around here!
After breaking world records for both speed and number of medals in the 2008 Olympics, the world fell in love with Michael Phelps. I love to watch him swim, and can't wait for him to rock the 2012 Olympics as well!
Who doesn't love the life Naomi and Josh Davis share on their blog The Rockstar Diaries?! Even though it seems like a fairy tale, their love (and the love they have for their two babes and adorable pup) is all too real, and something to aspire to!
Sydney lives a charmed life as well - gorgeous husband, rock-star kiddo, beautiful smile ... and she appears to have lost all of her baby weight in far too short of a time! Sharing bits of her life on The Daybook, Sydney is one of a few bloggers I visit daily!
Tim Tebow loves Jesus with wild abandon. He's built his life to contain so many amazing things (football being juts one of them), but his world revolves around his Savior. You gotta respect that, even if you don't believe as he does.
Just like with the last list, I've already started to contact these folks about getting hats on their heads. It's all very exciting and scary at the same time, this whole "naming your dreams and then starting to make them come true" thing.
