Dreams into Plans -- 101 Things

Mackenzie from Design Darling has a list of 101 things she wants to do in 1,001 days (a little over 2 and a half years). This inspired me to create my own 101 things list -- though I'm going to aim for 1,001 days, some of these things might have to wait a little bit longer than that -- they are more long term goals that I have for my life. I think everyone has a bucket list of sorts -- I know I do -- but writing them all down and crossing them off as they are completed makes it much more exciting.
