  2. I LOVE #71!! I have a Le Creuset grill pan and although it’s the most difficult pan to clean after use, it’s still one of my favorites. I want a saute pan and a dutch oven!

  6. Hello from across the country. We’ve never met, but I somehow landed on your page and found your 101 in 1001 list a few years back, and it left me utterly inspired. I made my own list in January 2010 and just did a little review of it tonight to see how things went these past few years. In reading it, I felt an incredible sense of gratitude. Without knowing it, you encouraged me to set some tangible goals in a season when I couldn’t quite figure out what I wanted out of life. Looking back at the list, I see that I knew what I wanted much more than I realized and have now accomplished more than I ever could have on my own. Thanks 🙂

    • chelsea, this was such a fun comment to read this morning. thanks for “reporting back” with the results of your 101 list! i’m so glad to hear that it’s been a meaningful tool for you! blessings!
