101 In 1001!


One of my favorite bloggers to follow is Mackenzie Horan and her blog Design Darling. In fact, I am sure that since starting to religiously follow her blog the amount of navy blue striped clothing I own has doubled (I already had too much to start if you ask Daniel).

One of my favorite things Mackenzie does is she makes 101 and 1001 lists which are lists of 101 things she works to accomplish in 1001 days (approx. 2.75 years) . I just loved the idea so I made one of my own!

Follow along with me while I see how many of these things I can check off my list in the next 1001 days!

And thanks, Mackenzie, for the great idea!
