101 Things in 1001 Days Challenge

I saw Alice from 'Alice in Sheffield' post this challenge on her blog and I thought it looked like so much fun. I'm a huge fan of writing lists and goals so coming up with 101 goals/tasks to accomplish in roughly 2.75 years was right my alley! I think that's a really decent amount of time to tick off everything on my list.....or at least I'm hoping!

Starting today on June 29th, 2019 means that I have until March 26th, 2022 to complete my list. I'm not sure how often I'll come back and update on my achievements. Maybe every 3 or so months? If you're doing a similar challenge leave your list link in the comments! I'd love to check out your lists! :)
