101 Things To Do In 1001 Days

Funny story: I found an ooooooooooold blog of mine (which I was wise enough to make private) and while rehashing old memories with the hubby, I found a post on 101 things to do in 1001 days. Needless to say, I did NOT stick to those things. Disappointing.

However… I am definitely a more focused person these days… 2 years later… and I can honestly say I look forward to completing this list. A lot of these are from my old “101” list with about 3 to 5 new additions 🙂 I encourage you all to join me in this journey— create your own list and leave the link to your site in my Comment section so I can follow your journey as well. 🙂
