101 things in 1,001 days

  Mackenzie Horan from Design Darling boutique started her 101 things in 1,001 days project and her end date was September 28th.   I think starting this project now is a great way to start my senior year of college as I finish a huge chapter in my life and start a new one in the real world.  I'll be checking  off things as I go and blogging about them in the process. Follow along for this fun little journey!
