101 things to do in 1001 days.

My family has been in dietary transition, lately, which is why I haven't been posting.  It's really no excuse.  What better time to post than now, as we move as a family from a regular, clean but meat-eating diet, to a raw, vegetarian lifestyle.  I should use this blog as a journal to measure our ups and downs, trials and errors.  A place where I can one day visit and say, "Look how far we've come."  But the change has proven to be a lot of work, one which the girls are less than thrilled about.  But I shall make a better effort to report in, and tell you what I've been learning.

But for today, I would like to share with you something I found on livelovelife.com.  It really inspired me to create my own list.  I feel more accountable now to actually follow through with the things I've been saying I'll do.  101 things I want to do in the next 1001 days.  Starting now!  I stole many of her ideas, but threw in some of my own that I have been wanting to do or try.   I’m also leaving this list incomplete, as I’m sure I will come across many things I will want to add, as I go along…..
