#3 Postsecret

I don't know if it's the anonymity of the project, the creativity, the voyeuristic nature of spying into the private lives of others, or the sheer genius of this, but I know she would've loved it. And I bet she would've submitted a few secrets of her own.

#2 Across the Universe

This is my all-time favorite movie, and I can't help but wonder how much of that has to do with the fact that my mom would have LOVED this movie. A beautiful story set to Beatles music? Plus Jim Sturgess is adorable. And British.

#1 iTunes

My mom was impulsive in almost everything she did. She knew what she wanted, and she wanted it then and there. Music was one of her favorite things, and it was absolutely no exception to this rule. If she couldn't find that particular Eagles CD she was craving to hear, we would buy another copy immediately. This habit eventually led to her owning at least 3 copies of every CD she ever purchased. And DVDs. And books.

iTunes would have blown her mind, and probably her bank account, too. I can imagine how amazing her iPod playlists would be. It would span decades of fabulous music, to which she would sing loudly and openly.
