101 in 1001

Sunday, January 3, 2016

I originally saw this on Mackenzie Horan's blog and loved the idea, but never thought I'd be able to pull it off. I decided to go ahead and give it a shot. At the very least, this list will allow me to set goals and create things I'd like to do and stay accountable for as many of them as possible. And why not start it on New Years?! I encourage you all to do it with me!
