Happy New Year! This year I have decided to make a list of 101 things I want to complete in 1001 days. This list is being started today (January 1, 2011) and will end September 28, 2013. Many things will change over these next 2 1/2 years. I have filled the list with things I have been wanting to accomplish and have put off. I have also filled the list with items to help me build stronger relationships with the people I love most. I have purposefully left a few items blank, since I know many life changes will be happening over the next 2 1/2 years. This is my way of leaving room for change. I will post my progress on this blog, but don’t worry, it will not take away from your regular programming 😉
