About The Project

Here you’ll find a public archive of our 365 day experiment/challenge to complete 365 things we’ve always wanted to do but have never done before – like bake a pie from scratch, bungee jump, build a robot, fly a box-kite, churn butter, learn to knit, canoe down river rapids, and kiss upside down like spiderman – to name a few.

This year we’ve decided to throw the annoying “new year’s resolutions” to the wind. Instead, we’re committing ourselves to fill each day with a little wonder, excitement and inspiration, simply by doing more of the things that make us happy (and thus, more connected to the world around us).

If you’d like, you can follow our progress here from January 14, 2012 – January 13, 2013 as we check off all 365 items on our to-do list. This blog is meant to keep us on track, organized and accountable. *Special thanks to our family, friends and colleagues for continually supporting our crazy ideas.
