A farewell coffee date. Take some time to breath, sip a warm drink, and share with your new blogging buddies.
We did it! The Blogtember Challenge is coming to a close today and though I am sad to see it go, I’m also so proud of us and in awe of all the challenge has done!
A month ago, I was a baby blogger. I didn’t totally know what I was doing. I remember thinking, “If I get through September, maybe this has a chance of becoming a permanent fixture in my life.” I jumped into Bailey Jean’s challenge, writing my Day 1 post and having no idea if I’d make it to the end. And here we are!
I completed nearly every single challenge. I believe I only missed five. For a month that included a full-time job, two vacations and a jam-packed calendar, I’m calling it a success! I’ve learned a lot about myself and about my writing process, and I’ve “met” so many wonderful bloggers. I can’t wait to keep up with what all of you are doing as time goes on!
As for me and A Genuine Delight, it will likely be quiet around here for the next week as I jump into a new church community group (we’re going to be reading Let’s All Be Brave, and I am SO excited) and spend some time with my mom. After that, I hope to start sharing all of these adventures with you! It doesn’t look like I’ll be leaving NYC at all in October, instead using the month to relax, explore the city in my very first grown-up fall, and settle into some new responsibilities at church.
