52 Things in 52 Weeks

In other words, 52 things in a year.

Instead of coming up with a list of resolutions for this New Year, I thought I’d take a bucket list-y approach to 2015. I was inspired by Design Darling Mackenzie Horan’s 101 in 1001 Days, but I can visualize and plan for a year much more easily than 1001 days.

I’ve included my list below and will be sharing updates as I go.  My list will be updated on my “52 Things in 52 Weeks” page. And you should let me know if you’re doing anything similar this year — I’d love to follow along!
