Items completed: 29

I have decided to make this 101 things in 2002 days because, let’s face it, just under 3 years is probably not enough time for me to get all of this glorious stuff done. Especially all of the vacations on this list! So by adding an additional 1001 days, I will effectively double my deadline time and while it does make the title slightly more lame, I think the project will suffer if left at the original 1001. Keep those fingers crossed that my tendency toward procrastination will not prevail and that I can actually complete this project! I’m going to take as many pictures of these things as humanly possible so check back for the updates!
