Learning to Breathe, Pt. 10 and a Challenge

October starts my favorite three months of the year. I love fall and the time leading up to Christmas. It makes my heart happy! I love decorating, making warm, feel good food, burning candles, etc. The list goes on and on.

October also starts the 31 Day Challenge. For those who don't know, it is a challenge to write every day in October. This is the third year I have participated. My first year I wrote about fall and actually wrote all 31 days. Last year, my attempt was a little half-hearted - Making a House Home Sweet Home. I only blogged 11 days. This year, my topic is similar to last year - Loving the Home You Have.

It is something I am passionate about. My house is a LONG way from being what I want it to be, but I love it.  Besides being anywhere with my family, there is no place else I would rather be. While I am waiting for my windfall of cash (I am not holding my breath), I am doing things that are allowing me to make it into the place I want it to be - comforting and inviting.

I hope you will join me on this challenge. I will include links to each day's post at the bottom of this post. I hope I can inspire and encourage you.

If you are participating in the 31 Day Challenge, let me know. I would love to visit your little spot on the internet.

Day 2 - Organizing a Catch-all Space
Day 3 - Snapshots Into My Life
Day 4 - Reflections on Home
Day 5 - Autumn Wreath Revamp
Day 11 - Reflections on Home

  2. I'm writing about a similar topic - Love Where You Live - but my focus is going to be more on loving your neighborhood and city (I'm a small town girl with big city dreams and learning to make it work!) Looking forward to reading your posts.

    1. I will definitely check out your blog, Heather! It is hard to be content where we are sometimes. I thought I had to get out of the city I grew up in, but after 10 years of being away, I knew that my hometown was the place I really wanted to be.

  3. I wrote with a similar topic last year - it was really fun (albeit time consuming!), and it really made me appreciate my space! :)
