101 Updated

I thought it was time to update this list.

I removed: 2, 10, 14, 19, 34, 39, 42. 53. 66. 69, 74, 86 90 and will update them with new things as they come to me.

Also crossed a few things off. Number 11 was kinda iffy, but I did get paid for a photo so it counts. I will be able to cross three things in October :) Still really thinking about number 6. Ugh, that one always has me on the fence. I don't see number 4 happening, but I really want to so I left it on there. I just love the smell of the ocean.

Digressing. Just now when I wrote that it reminded me of our cruise to Hawaii at Thanksgiving. It was 4 days at sea both ways. On the way back I remember having my laptop open playing Christmas music. The sliding door to the balcony was open and the salty air made the sheer curtains flutter. We feel asleep to the music and the scent of the sea. Love.

Anyway, that was just a random memory :)
