101 Things in 1001 Days

So I was totally inspired by Design Darling to make a list that is somewhere between a bucket list and a to-do list and NYs resolutions to make things happen in the next 1001 days or 2.75 years, starting now.  We all set resolutions every year but often they’re ambiguous and forgotten after a month or so. This way I am holding myself accountable and you can too as I check things off my list and live the kind if life I have been talking about but not making time for! 🙂 Try it and send me the link, I would love to read it and I will add it below! Let’s live the life we’ve been dreaming about and get stuff done! Be the best version of yourself and celebrate today!  xoxo
