I’ve seen a lot of “bucket lists” floating around on the internet with people having their 30 before 30 lists or 101 things that they want to do in 1001 days. I’ve never been one that has any sort of bucket list (although I did say that seeing the cherry blossoms in bloom in DC was something that I had on my nonexistent bucket list), so when Macy over at To Travel and Beyond announced a linkup for a 101 in 1001, I wasn’t sure if I would join in. But when I started reading people’s lists, it actually seemed like something that I could accomplish. So here’s my own 101 things in 1001 days list!
