101 in 1001

Friday, November 8

If you read Design Darling {which I completely recommend} then you are familiar with the 101 in 1001 list. Inspired by Mackenzie, I started my own and spent the last few weeks pulling together 101 items. Which is tougher than it sounds! I finally completed it and wanted to share it here today to a) keep me honest and b) hopefully inspire my readers to start their own. It may be just me…but I personally strive with attainable goals. And I love the fact that although the list is daunting the runway is very long. My plan is to hone in on 2-3 per month and work my way through it slowly by surely.  I’ll think of it as my bucket list for the next 3 years.
If you start one of your own, please leave a comment or shoot me an email so we can help each other along the way! So with that, here is my list:
