Hello lovely friends,
A few years ago I completed Project Happiness, a 100-day personal challenge based on new experiences. It was a great experience, for me, my family, and for the thousands who keep reading these updates years later (knowing this is like receiving a hug for each of you - xxoo).
If I had to define 2016 with one word it would be 'disruptive.' The first week of January to June was shadowed by a Union strike at the company in which I work. For five weeks we dealt with extensive water damage to our home. Mix in sixteen weeks of training for the London Marathon, and late July we welcomed a new addition to our family... an eight-week old puppy!
Calmness is not a word I would use to describe the year yet it's something I try to create. Memorable yes, serene it was not.
SO to start 2017 off strong, I have been working on a new project. One focused on trying new things and creating fun memories. Nothing difficult or requiring training.
Inspired by the quote 'Like Wildflowers' I am starting the year with a new 100-day challenge. 100 days happens to be 14 weeks (Jan 1 to April 10) so it's only fitting that I have a list of 14!
Making your own pasta
A beautiful bird house
Go rock climbing
Plan and plant a Wildflower Garden
I created a long list and narrowed it down over with input from the World Traveler. We enjoyed a glass of wine, dinner and a movie. When I asked him to participate, he smiled. Together we will build a birdhouse, go rock climbing, make pasta, and learn to juggle.
Want to join me? Build your own list, use mine or parts of it. Post updates to Instagram with #Wildflowers100 to share your wildflower moments and experiences. If you don't use IG, you know how to connect with me. I would love to read about your first 100 days of 2017.
Together we can make a giant bouquet of wildflowers!
