101 In 1001

About a year and a half ago, my amazing friend Alissa at alisueonthemove introduced me to this novel idea called 101 in 1001.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with this, it’s a challenge that originated with the Day Zero Project, in which you make a list of 101 things you’d like to achieve in a 1001 day time frame (approximately 2.75 years).  It can be big goals, small goals, group goals, wish-list items…you get the idea 🙂

I’m FINALLY ready to commit to my list!  I’ll post updates as I accomplish my goals, and I’m so excited to get it going!
