101 in 1001 Update

Back in January, I started a 101 in 1001 list. It’s a list of 101 things I want to accomplish in 1001 days. Since my life plan drastically changed due to my health, I went through and changed some items that were specific to Nashville/living in Tennessee. Today I have that changed list, as well as an update on what I’ve accomplished!

Also I will help you on meeting blogging friends..and you can knock another one off the this is you go to the Arthritis walk in Brighton on September 14th!
