101 in 1001

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

If you follow along to Mackenzie Horan, you already might know about 101 in 1001. Mackenzie, from  Design Darling, is one of my favorite bloggers and introduced us to 101 things in 1001 days (about 2.75 years). I decided to join in on the fun because I love a list! This will also be a great way of keeping track of my longer term goals as well as hold me more accountable.
