101 in 1001

With the New Year always focused on the idea that something needs to change, I embraced the New Year for 1 reason I turn 32 today and decided there are a number of things I want to do, but just never plan for them. So rather than beat myself up about not getting my butt to the gym everyday, I am taking a different approach to 2018, bring on my mini bucket list of 101 things that I would like to accomplish in the next 1001 days!

I was inspired by several other bloggers creating similar lists and thought when is a better time then NOW to start checking off things I have wanted to do? And you are probably wondering why I have tomatoes as the image for this post…well as silly as it sounds tomatoes were not my favorite growing up, and now a days, I can’t get enough of them! So what better way to symbolize change, then these beauties?!?! I’ll be updating this list throughout the next few years, so stay tune for my progress! and in the meantime, I highly recommend creating a list for yourself! Cheers!
