I shared yesterday about my intentions for the 2015 Write 31 Days Challenge, and today is the day! The first of October has dawned dark and rainy, and after experiencing a long stretch of painful drought here in CA, I couldn’t be more delighted to see the rain. And I’m delighted that you’re here as well!
This will be my “landing page” for this challenge, so to speak, so if you’re interested in following along, bookmark this page, as I will add live links for each day as the corresponding post is published. Additionally, remember that you can subscribe to my blog via email (look for the widget on my home page) so you don’t miss anything!
For those who are new to my blog, I am writing about the recent trip that my husband Austin and I took to Europe, along with my sister Megan and brother-in-law Taylor, and another dear friend of ours, Kate. Over the course of 15 days, we visited Dublin, London, and Paris, and we came home with a wealth of stories and memories to last a lifetime.
I’m so excited to share this series, and I look forward to both the hard work that will push me past my comfort zone, as well as the great joy of sharing memories from this trip that was truly the trip of a lifetime. Thanks for joining me for 31 Stories From Europe!
