101 in 1001




If you haven't already heard about 101 Things in 1001 Days you should check out the following websites : Design Darling , Day Zero Project , Pretty & Fun. Basically you write out 101 things you'd like to do before the 1001 days are up. I couldn't just randomly come up with 101 ideas so I searched the previous sites for more ideas.

If I inspire you to create your own list, please comment below or email me! I will link your page at the bottom so that everyone else can search for your list and keep up with you as well! I will also try to post an update on my 101 in 1001 every Friday until I have completed the list.

Start date: February 25, 2015
End date: November 22, 2017
