My 101 in 1001

101 in 1001

Welcome to the first link-up of the 101 in 1001 challenge, I am so excited to be sharing my list! I can’t wait to read what everyone else has on their list, and follow along as we check off our goals.

Since the link-ups are only every 3 months, I wanted to come up with a way for all of us to keep up with each other in-between. I was searching around for a hashtag we could all use as we do the activities on our lists, and realized that #my101in1001 is not currently used on Instagram or Twitter, what do you all think about using that? It will be fun to keep up with each others activities!
