I'm so excited to introduce to you my 101 in 1001. The idea is to create a list of 101 goals and attempt to accomplish them in 1001 days! Thanks to Design Darling I took the plunge! I've been working on my list for a handful of days now and am excited to see where it takes me. Some of these goals are silly (#48), others are lofty (#40) and some are simply things I have always longed to and just never actually done. So let's looks shall we?
