{101 in 1001:D.Personal}

So I had some amazing ladies inspire me to write down my little list for 101 things I want to do in 1,001 days. And I think that it would be amazing to start a list, challenge myself, even if I can't finish the 101 things in the 1,001 days...I think it would deserve maybe a high-five, a HECK YES or a little happy dance for at least trying to accomplish the whole list :D This will be a great little challenge for me to step out of my "comfort zone" and keep trying something new even if its really tiny to anyone else, even if its not photography related...its a little step for me:):)

At this moment, I know that this list isn't the full 101 but I will be adding to the list as soon as things come to me that I want to do and accomplish:) Everyone grows, learns at their own pace...I know that I have a lot more to learn & want to learn. So I will admit that I'm glad its not the whole 101 right now.YAY:):)!!!! {I finished adding my 101 and now I'm even more excited to keep knocking things off my list that that is all finished!!}

  2. Re: #24
    If you like red wine, I highly suggest Barbi Brunello di Montalcino. It's full-bodied without being overbearing, and has a beautiful combination finish of oak and bing cherry.
    Let it breathe for at least an hour before drinking (cut that in half if decanted).
    If you can't deal with room temperature red, you can add one small ice cube, but the closer it is to optimum temp (not cold) the more the flavors shine)

    [Edited to add more information without cluttering your comments)

  3. What a great idea! Good luck and I hope you can accomplish them ALL! :)

  4. :-) such an awesome idea. Can't wait to see what else you add.

  5. Very nice. I love this idea!!!! Hope you can get your list complete and do everything on it.

  6. This is a great list and a great idea! Good luck on your 1001 day adventure!! =]
