101 in 1001

Happy Friday friends! I’ve been thinking about making one of these 101 things in 1001 days for a while now and I am finally getting around to doing it! Mackenzie Horan started this concept a few years back and I think it’s such a fabulous way to dream big for the next 2.75 years. So without further ado, here is my list! ALSO if you want to join me in this version of a bucket list, comment a link to yours or let me know your thoughts!
