101 in 1001

This is a new way to create a non-intimidating list of goals that I found via one of my favorite blogs Chronicles of Frivolity.

You make 101 goals and then give yourself 1001 days to complete as many as possible. That’s about 2.75 years.. seems much more doable than the yearly resolution timeline now doesn’t it? So here it goes, my list #1…

    What a cool concept—I’ve never heard of this! It sounds a little intimidating, actually.

    I have an amazing challah recipe if you’d like it, or want to join me for baking some bread! It’s very time intensive since it’s a triple-rise recipe, but it’s hard to mess up. And everyone you know will ask you to bring it to dinner parties and holidays!

      It takes a bit of time to think of 101 things but if you read other lists for ideas it’s well worth it. I’m so glad I started mine and if you make saving $10 for each item accomplished you will have a nice little stash in no time! I can’t recommend this practice enough! Also I would love to try your recipe! I’ve never had challah bread before…
