101 in 1001 Update

I am so sorry that I have been MIA lately and that this is the first blog post in like 2ish weeks! 
Things have been super busy and I've been feeling a little uninspired. (I've also been stuck in a book series. More on that later.) 
But I'm finally feeling inspired and have lots of content I'm excited to share. ( I just need to get it shot. haha)
Today I thought I would share an update on my 101 in 1001. I posted this for the first time back in October of 2017. I kind of forgot about the list honestly. 
Since I am quickly approaching the big 3-0 and my 1001 days will be up I thought it would be a good time to access where I'm at.
