110 in 1,100

As you all know, I love making lists! I find the act of listing to be soothing, stress relieving, and one of the few ways to sort through all of the crazy yet exciting thoughts that constantly dance around my mind. Inspired by both a favorite blogger of mine, Mackenzie, the creator of Design Darling, and one of my all time favorite movies, A Walk to Remember, I decided to forgo a traditional list of resolutions in favor of making a bucket list of sorts. But unlike a bucket list, my list is designed to be completed in a little over 3 years; 1,100 days to be exact! The amount of things I want to accomplish and places I want to visit is endless and always changing, so for now I have drawn up a list of 110 experiences, places, and things that I want to complete in the next 1,100 days. 

I'll be honest with you, creating this list was equal parts exciting and challenging, but I find the time limit slightly daunting, yet completely doable. There are a few goals  I plan on achieving in the next couple years, but have left off of this list because they are more personal. I'm sure I'll share my more private goals once they are completed, but for now I give you the 110 things that I plan to complete in the next 1,100 days! I can't wait to share my experiences with all of you and to see which people in my life will be joining me on this journey.
