My 101 in 1001

I've been wanting to create one of these lists for a while, so I was more than excited when I saw Macy was hosting a link up and a place to share our dreams and goals with each other. Having a group to movitate me to knock out my 101 things will be awesome. 

I love lists. Lists of all types are great, especially as I get older (womp womp). I am really happy to have all this written out in a place that can hold me accountable and keep me on track with things I have been wanting to tackle and accomplish.

So, here it is. My 101 in 1001...I'm really looking forward to working on all these things.
