101 Things

Welcome to my 101 Things Project 

It's a compilation of 101 questions and topics that will help me to re-connect with myself as a person - not just as mommy, wife, daughter, employee..... I love all of that, but sometimes I miss plain old me. I believe as we grow up and go through life, we lose sight of ourselves in the midst of our busy schedules & responsibilities. Some questions/topics are on the serious side, some light-hearted... whatever the case - they will get me thinking - and writing. I'll post about each one and will link the posts back here to the questions as I go.

Would you like to do this project too? Grab the list HERE and link up HERE so others can find and read your stories too.
