The List

My name is Drew Frampton and this is my attempt at documenting doing 101 things I’ve always wanted to do.

It all started when my wife Brendy tried to have a conversation about having a baby. My answer, “I can’t have a kid right now, I still have so much I want to accomplish.”

Enter, The List.

The list was actually Brendy’s idea. We talked about what we would want to do before having a kid, Brendy made a list (a lot of them having to do with me) and so I thought I would lift from her list those that had to do with me and then add more to it.

I’ve always said I don’t have time. I’m running a company, pursuing a career, recently married, active in church / non-profits and a myriad of other things. With a baby on the horizon, I’ve decided to stop procrastination’s lure and do the things I really want to do.
