101 in 1001

For my first post of 2013 (...I apologize for it already being the 8th!) I decided to create a 101 in 1001 list inspired by Mackenzie Horan of Design Darling. The list is 101 things I would like to accomplish in 1001 days (2.75 years). As Mackenzie explained, "it's a happy medium between a to do list and keeping a bucket list." And perfectly, the 1001 days is up on my birthday! Here we go!
