30-Day Blog Challenge: What I Learned and Challenge Recap!

Phew!!  Am I glad that’s over!!   I’m sure you were thinking that I would never make it, because honestly, I was thinking that myself!  I’m glad I finally did it though and to celebrate, I’m giving away a $25 Amazon Gift Card.  But first, I want to do a rundown of what I learned and a recap of the challenge. This Challenge was originally intended to be a 30-Week Challenge, but I was ever-so-confident that I could do it thirty {Read More}

30-Day Blog Challenge: Day 30–Remember the Dream Is Yours…

Technically this one is mine though, so… (I’m just trying to be funny.  Did it work???) The final challenge question of the 30-Day-Blog-Challenge-that-I-have-failed-so-miserably is:  What are your hopes, dreams, and plans for the future? I honestly try not to think too far into the future.  Mostly because my brain no longer has the capacity to process why I walk into any given room in my house at that exact moment, so thinking ahead is a little iffy!  I do have {Read More}

30-Day Blog Challenge: Day 29–♪♪Can Anybody Find Me…Somebody To Love…♪♪

Today’s blog challenge asks you to describe someone you love.  How exactly do you pick just one person that you love to talk about?  How do you narrow it down to one who is more interesting or more important than the others?  You can’t.  Or at least I can’t! I could talk about my children and how much I love them.  They are so very important to me.  I think my life would be very cold, sad, and empty without {Read More}

30-Day Blog Challenge: Day 28–This Is the Place I Love…

We all have those places where we feel most at home, where we feel safe, where we feel relaxed, where we feel happy, or where we feel loved.  Some of those places we associate with a good memory or a particular person or maybe, just with that certain feeling we get when we are there.  I often say that I love any place where my children are.  The truth is that I love my children and I love being with {Read More}

30-Day Blog Challenge: Day 27–Bag It Up…

This challenge calls for examining your baggage…literally!  What’s in your bag? I’m going to go out on a limb and say this means purse, but by all means, if you have some other sort of bag, share the contents! My bag contains a wallet with various and sundry identification, insurance, debit, credit, and reward cards.  I have a checkbook, about six dollars in change, and slightly less than that in cash!! I thought I had two ink pens, but apparently {Read More}

30-Day Blog Challenge: Day 26–You’re My Inspiration…

I’ve been noticeably absent again.  I have this really bad habit of getting caught up in everyday life and forgetting to do little things…like write blog posts!! It’s time to get back on track though and even if I never wash another dish or run another errand, I’m going to finish this challenge.  I mean it.  For real. Challenge 26 says to describe who you admire and inspire. That’s a little tough.  I admire lots of people for lots of {Read More}

30-Day Blog Challenge: Day 25–Don’t Let Go…

Today’s blog challenge is another very difficult one for me.  It calls for choosing my very favorite picture and describing it.  Not fair, not fair!!! I have so many, but for the sake of the challenge, I will choose just one. This picture is one of my very favorites for a lot of reasons.  It’s at the beach, they are in the water, and the colors are gorgeous.  Of course, the subject matter includes two of my very favorite people, {Read More}

30-Day Blog Challenge: Day 24–I Don’t Wanna Grow UP…

Today’s blog post is brought to you by the word “childhood”!! Hmmmm…let’s see… Do you ever have trouble remembering your childhood?  I remember certain events and sometimes even smells or colors, but it’s like the every day just escapes me! I guess my childhood was typical for the time and the area we lived in.  I went to school, I had chores, we had family time, we went to church.  My Momma taught us to read before we started school, {Read More}

30-Day Blog Challenge: Day 23–I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write My Folks a Letter…

Day 23’s challenge is to write a letter to your parents.  I’ve actually been putting this challenge off for a while.  I even thought of not doing it at all. Then I decided it might be cathartic.  Still, short and sweet is probably the wisest course of action and I’m not really concerned if anyone reads this or not. Here goes…   Dear Momma, You are wonderful and fabulous and beautiful and kind and I couldn’t ask for any better. {Read More}
