101 in 1001 Days

Hello Internet friends! Today on the blog is something special that I'm pretty dang excited for. Inspired by Mackenzie over at Design Darling and some of the other 100 or so bloggers I follow have done these '101 things in 1001 days' lists. I marveled at Mackenzie's (she's done two!) and the other bloggers lists and how they knocked them outta the park. I finally decided that I was going to create, start and accomplish my own! I was debating whether to start this at the beginning of the new year or now and there's no better time than the present! 

What: complete the 101 things below 
When: 1001 days which is roughly 2.75 years
Why: To finally do all those things I've said I'd do "some day, one day or eventually"
