I am so excited to share my new 101 in 1001 list. I’ve seen these all over many of my favorite blogs over the years and actually made one before this and was surprised at how many things I checked off. I think there is something about writing your goals down that motivates you to work towards them more and see them through. These lists are somewhat of a “bucket list” but not spread over a lifetime. The idea of a “101 in 1001” list is to complete 101 things in 1001 days. I love the thought of checking off some big goals but also things that are seemingly mundane but I never get around to. I finally decided to finish the list with the blog rebrand semi-new.  I hope that this will motivate our family to have some really fun experiences and “do” rather than just “dream.”
