101 in 1001

Inspired by blogger Mackenzie Horan at Design Darling, who created this challenge and is on her THIRD iteration of it, here are 101 things that I want to do within 1001 days (roughly 2.75 years).

She split hers up into the following categories: personal development, professional, marriage, family & friends, home, Connecticut, New York, Nantucket, travel, and just for fun. Obviously, my categories will be a slightly different, but it really does help to organize in this way!
