the list

If you’d like to find out what this list is all about, go to my 100 things page. In a nutshell, this is the list of “things” or goals I have written on scraps of paper, mentioned to people over coffee and drinks but never intentionally tried to do. By putting this list together all in one place I’m presenting myself with the opportunity to try something new, do something new…and just the thought of it is exciting!
