101 in 1001

I have been following the Crystal.Cattle blog for sometime now and I have always admired her 101 in 1001 goals but up until today I didn’t really think I could do it for myself. I’m not really sure what did it for me but I decided to jump in and try it out! It was surprisingly really hard to think of 101 things I realistically wanted to do in 1001 days, but it was a lot of fun, and I think I discovered a few things about myself along the way.

As I complete things on my list I will highlight them in bold and hopefully on January 1, 2015 (1001 days from today) everything will be highlighted!
