101 in 1001

I am an avid reader of Design Darling {in fact I bought the BFF's birthday present from her boutique!}. So I have read through both of her "101 in 1001" posts and I have fallen in love with the idea. I am goal oriented so these 101 goals are something I look forward to accomplishing. And I plan to blog about each one of them {does that make it 102 goals?}. So below is my very own list, I used many others as inspiration for mine. If you feel inspired to make a list of your own, let me know and I'll link it in this post-xoxo darling, Hayden.
