Sharing My Goals

Well, my 1001 days was complete in Fall 2012.  I was able to accomplish a lot of the things on my list, which are crossed off below.  I’m going to continue to edit my list in the future as I accomplish them beyond the 1001 days though, so check back!

I’m following suit with so many others who make a 101 in 1001 list.  The premise is that you list 101 things that you’d like to accomplish, and you try to complete the list in 1001 days.  I encourage you to link up to your list in the comments if you have one online, I’d love to keep up with your progress too!
