Thirty One Days…

Every October, for the past three years, the Nester from Nesting Place has written a series entitled “31 Days”. I admired her for doing so but in regards to taking up the invitation to join her, well the entire idea just felt impossibly daunting. I mean, what would I talk about?

Then it hit me.

After all there is British Colonial Décor, Hollywood Regency Décor, Cabin Décor, Shabby Chic Décor, Mid Century Décor …. I could very easily go on and on.

Maybe you have always wanted to know just exactly what your style was but could never quite find a name for it. During this series there’s a good chance you will find out or perhaps even find a style you love even more, but didn’t know existed. 

Of course every now and then I plan on throwing in a bit of DIY also known as “Laura’s Décor”.  :)  

But what about Sundays?

As it turns out, God has A LOT to say about décor.

So yes, this year I am joining Nester who will be writing on being intentional in her home during her “31 Days” series. I also have already given myself permission to fail. By doing so ahead of time it will be ok if I decide to spend time with my family INSTEAD of writing a blog post.

Are you joining in the “31 Days” series?

Good for you Laura! On both counts - by taking up the challenge and also by allowing yourself the privilege of NOT posting if family needs you more. It can be very hard to do - I KNOW!! But our families need us more!

Oh goodie....maybe you will talk about my style...
It is a combo of Grandma's attic, friend's freebies, I can't get rid of it because I remember, and no, my husband says it can't be that way. Is there really a name for it???

I'll look forward to reading your posts - no matter how many of them you actually write. Time with family is waaay more important.

I've been tempted to do a 31-day series, but it seems daunting - and what would I write about?

Laura, I would have no idea what to write about for 31 days, but I think you have found something that will be interesting to a lot of readers. Can't wait to see what you do with this!

I'm in!!! It's daunting to take the 31 day challenge....but I did it. And I'm not giving myself permission to fail. I almost quit before I started and my husband gave me wonderful encouragement....hence the I can't fail part.
Love what you've done the first few days!!!!!
