.:101 in 1001:.

Thanks to a dear friend Caty, I was inspired to create my own list of 101 things I'd like to do in 1001 days.  Check out her list here.  Some of my "goals" will require planning and many will require saving, but some can be easily conquered.  I've categorized my list, because that's just who I am.  Hopefully I'll inspire you to create your own list...
