Life Goals

For years I have been wanting  to compile a “Life Goals” list and I’ve taken the past few weeks while globetrotting to collect some thoughts, scout the internet, and ask my beloved friends about their own personal goals.  Although this list originally started out at 103 things (both to commemorate my love of the number three and to challenge myself), I knew it would grow because I want to do all. the. things!
