My new 101 in 1001 list!


This is my THIRD 101 list! That means I’ve spent almost 5.5 years of my adult life living with these lists. My first one, I accomplished 46 of the 101 things. My second one, I accomplished 44. This year, let’s shoot for at least 51 can I get an amen?! I’m learning about what is realistic and what isn’t – basically I keep re-learning what I wrote in my post about what I learned the first time I attempted the 101 in 1001 Days list.

    #77 is a total cop out number. I don’t think it should be allowed to be on your list! Also, have we talked about watching a sunset and sunrise on the same day before? Because watching a sunrise over the ocean and sunset over the ocean on the same day is on my bucket list. Yes, that means I’d have to travel during the day in order to accomplish it (or be on an island) but it’s going to happen!
