101 in 1001

8 Jan

Some of you may be familiar with the 101 in 1001 list. I was inspired after seeing Mackenzie of Design Darling‘s list. I have been thinking about making a list for a while, but finally set aside some time to create it. It is a lot harder than I thought it would be to find 101 things I want to do/ accomplish over the next 2.75 years. I wanted to share my list with you to not only hold myself accountable for these items, but possibly inspire you to create your own list! Since it is a new year it seems fitting to start now. I will be keeping track of my progress on here and post periodically about noteworthy experiences resulting from this list.

So, here we go!
