Arienne's 101 Things to Do in Her Fabulous Life (My Bucket List)

So I thought I would share with you my 101 list. I have to say it is a bit daunting putting it out there! There are big things and small things on there. There are things that will take a while to achieve and others that have already been started. There are serious things and frivolous things. There are things that will make a difference in other people's lives and things that will make an impact on my immediate surrounds. There are things that are specific and things that are ongoing. I think it is a pretty good mix!
