Here it is.

So I spent hours making my 101 in 1001 list!  I wanted to post it here for everyone to see.  I'm not going to start it until September 1 just because things are hard enough now without pay!  Of course there were so many things I wanted to add, but had to make it tangible for my timeline.  I think it's tangible and am looking forward to putting some things I neglected on a new list in a couple of years.  I think this is a cool way to look back at who you were when you started your list as well.  Here goes nothing!

Very inspirational, even if I don't create a list! Maybe one day I will have the courage to do that!

What a fun list! I can relate to #1 and #2! And I love #99, but don't think I can do #100!

What a great list! I love this idea and agree that it's a fun way to look back and see where we were a few years ago. I might have to do one as well. Thanks for the inspiration!
