101 in 1001


Hi y’all,

I’ve done a few 101 in 1001 posts, and while I’ve accomplished a lot of things on them, I’ve never finished one. My goal for this one is to finish one, or at least be 90% done. This would mean accomplishing at least 91 items.

I’m starting this list on May 15, 2020 and 1001 days is February 10, 2023.

If you haven’t heard of one of these lists before, McKenzie Horan from design darling created this a while back. Here’s her latest list.
