101 in 1,001 - New List

Today, I'm excited to share my new list of 101 things in 1,001 days! I recently shared my completed list, and while I had quite a few things left to cross off, I'm proud of what I accomplished! My new list is an evolution of the last one. Some things that I never completed are no longer relevant, others I've added to this, and even more are new goals of mine to reach!

If you have your own list, I'd love to read it!
