101 in 1001 Days

I have seen this list on a few blogs now and one I checked out last week finally inspired me to create my own.  The idea is to create a list of goals that you aim to complete in 1001 days or about 2.75 years.  A lot of my goals I know I can finish within the next few months, but some of the travel ones we might not be able complete for a couple years.  I love lists and I love crossing things off lists even more, so this will be a fun thing for me to try :)
