Remember last summer’s #RandomLoveLetter Instagram Challenge? It’s back! You loved it so much that we’ve decided to make this an annual event! Huzzah! And this year @randomolive and I are joined by a new co-host… @atiliay! (You may remember some of her beautiful #RandomLoveLetter IGs from last year.) We’ll also have weekly themes and will be teaming up with @HandletteredABCs for the first week. Here’s how it works… Write a note with a positive message each day in June. (Or as often as you can.) Leave your random love letters in a public place for someone to discover. Take a photo of your note and share it on Instagram & Twitter using the hashtag #RandomLoveLetter. Read more.
(This month our guest Love Letter comes from Lorna of Radiating Chaos. Enjoy!) My Dearest Lake District, The moment I set foot on your mountainous terrain I was smitten. With your lush green landscape and tufty-white clouds, you stole my heart right there on the hillside. For 15 years you’ve held a place in my heart that’s difficult to explain. Time and time again I visit you, and each time I do, I see something new in the familiar. I’ve watched your landscape change throughout the seasons, but come rain or shine, wind or snow, your beauty enchants me each and every time. Read more.
Thanks to everyone who linked up last month! There were so many great adventure stories I found it hard to choose which to feature. 🙂 I finally settled on these. Enjoy! 1. Lorna’s back with another stunning taste of Italy. 2. Alison gives us a glimpse into Versailles. 3. Tamzen shares her first experience backpacking. Read more.
Let me preface this by saying I am no Danny Tanner. Quite the opposite. In fact I am quite adept at ignoring the mess all around me while I hyperfocus on whatever it is that I’m creating. I’m definitely not here to tell you how to clean or that you should clean, but I’m giving a good Mary Poppins try to make Spring Cleaning into an adventure for all of us.I’ve always been fascinated with Wendy Darling’s fixation on Spring Cleaning. With all the adventures in Neverland she still wanted to play house. (Of course, maybe that had something to do with living in a treehouse.) Read more.
It’s time to announce our next book! First, I want to thank you for your enthusiasm reading (or re-reading) Anne of Green Gables over the past two months. It may not have been the obvious choice for an adventure themed book club, but you took the leap and I love hearing your thoughts. (Haven’t chimed in yet? You can still join the discussion here.) For our next book I need you to trust me. We’re reading a book about habits. Wait! Don’t run away!!! This book isn’t your typical advice about habits. It’s kind of revolutionary. Here’s why I think this book can help us fit more adventure into our lives… Read more.
