100 Before 100

Before I spend 100 years on this Earth, there are just a few things I am going to do. 100 in fact! The below are experiences I will have – and should not be read as my goals or end points. These are meant to be the bends in the road and the scenery along the way. They are 100 things that will make me smile with 100% of my huge heart.

The ones that are crossed off are the ones that have been completed since creating this page in January 2010.
