101 in 1001

So, I changed things up a bit yesterday and I’ve been working on something special for my comeback. Lately, my friend, Rachel has inspired me with her blog posts, whether it was her 10 facts + 10 favorites or 101 in 1001. When her 101 in 1001 landed in my inbox this morning, I knew that was I needed to do. So, I’ve spent today working on the blog and making my list (I’m on Spring Break). I skimmed a lot of lists thanks to this list and came up with my own. So here we go,
