101 THINGS


101 Things to do in 1001 Days

Inspired by a similar post I saw this past August on Design Darling, I have created my own list of 101 things to do in 1001 days. With a time frame of just under three years, its the perfect mix between a to-do list and a bucket list. Embarrassingly, the list itself took me seven months to complete (101 things is a lot of things!!) but luckily I've managed to cross a few items off during that time!

To summarize--

Mission: 101 things to do in 1001 days
Start Date: August 20, 2012
End Date: May 20, 2015
Tasks Complete: 41

Keep you posted...
