The 2013 List

100 Things we thought up in a day after being inspired by the folks at 365 Things in 365 Days.  We’re going for a more modest approach and challenging ourselves to just 100 Things in 365 days.  Not going to lie, we borrowed a LOT of ideas from their list (which is seriously kick ass, you can check it out at, but also came up with a lot ourselves.  Some of them were inspired by conversations with friends – we added those things in to hold us accountable and ensure we make the plans to do “that awesome thing”.

Some of these we’ve done before, and it may be challenging to do again (#75 for example).  We hope this list will keep our year invigorating and different and help us connect with our friends and family in new and different ways.

It’s going to be a great year!
