Whew, it’s been awhile since I’ve talked about my 101 things, but I thought I’d repost it so a) I could revisit my list and begin making plans and b) some of you are new followers and have probably never seen it!
Thanks to Mackenzie Horan and Annie Reeves I have been inspired to complete 101 things in 1001 days. I had so much fun putting together this list and can’t wait to start it. Some of these are things I’ve always wanted to do and others I came up with completely on the spot. Either way I’m excited to start this journey and of course I’ll be sharing my completed tasks along the way! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
