101 in 1001

Like countless other blogs, I have found inspiration from Design Darling with her 101 in 1001 list. This is a list that consists of 101 goals and accomplisments to complete in 1001 days (about 2.75 years). This list provides not only a way to set goals for myself but also a great way to kick off my blog! I have been waiting for the inspiration needed to start and this was the perfect opportunity.

I have made an effort to ensure all the items on my list are attainable in the timeline and things I can control. I am so excited to begin this journey and start crossing things off my list! While completing the items, I will write a blog post about each task completed to keep track on my progress.

Start: May 24, 2015

End: February 17, 2018
