Project: #30Lists

Good Morning Evening from sunny Charleston Southern Florida! I wrote this blog post on Sunday evening when I thought I'd be able to post after breakfast, before our long drive from Myrtle Beach to Southern Florida. Unfortunately, road trips can throw some curves your way, and things didn't exactly go as planned. A broken wake-up call and dinner that took us a bit further off-course than we had thought, we arrived in Southern Florida about 3 and a half hours later than planned. However, now that we are here, all settled in, we're looking forward to a wonderful few days with family and enjoying the beautiful 80 degree days. Before this week get too far ahead of us (being away makes days harder to keep track of), I want to share with you a new project that I have embarked on - 30 Days of Lists.

A few weeks ago, I added a new button to my sidebar for a project called 30 Days of Lists. From Kam of Campfire Chic and Amy of Lemon and Raspberry, the project is described as follows:
"Not everyone can make a mini scrapbook every week or an art journal page every night.
30 Days of Lists is our encouragement and challenge to you that you CAN journal just something every day – even something as small as a list.
Every day through the month of March we will be posting a list prompt – anything from weekend goals to celebrity crushes. At the end of the 30 days you’ll have a collection of entries creating a small snapshot of your life right now.
Only 5-10 minutes per day are really needed. While you’re waiting for someone, or when you’re the passenger in the car. You can even download the list topics ahead of time to get a jump start!"
I won't be posting my lists here every day, but I will be updating periodically over the next few weeks and sharing highlights on Twitter. Also, after I bring all of my lists together into one "mini-scrapbook"-esque book, I will show you all how I created it. If you want to participate in the project, you can still sign up - it isn't too late! Click on the link above, head to the registration page and register to be a part of this awesome project. Here are the first 5 days of the project, starting with the first:
