For the past 7(ish) years I have participated in the “Day Zero Project” with one of my closest friends, Meg. It’s ultimately a long term to-do list, spanning close to three years. This year? I got my sister to join me in the project! And she’s blogging about her 101 in 1001 too!

My plan is to blog about many of the tasks (although, some may be small and not worthy of a full blog post!)
