As I was surfing through my daily blogs I came across the Design Darling’s 101 in 1001 and I thought it was such a great idea! The below is a list of 101 things I want to do in the next 1001 days (2.75 years), it is like an ongoing new years resolution for the next couple years.

One thought on “101 in 1001

  1. This is a great venue. I was here for a party and there was so much food and it was all done so well! The decor and food both were amazing. Personally, I think the space at Chicago venues is laid out really well and the size of the venue keeps pulling great parties.
