The 365 Day Challenge Take 2

Posted by on November 25, 2013

Someone once said if you publicly announce something, then you were more than likely to follow through. Yeah…no. Doesn’t really work for me.

Last year about this time, my hubby came home with this awesome idea. You might have heard about it on my old blog. We would create a thankful tree and post a leaf of what we’re thankful for every day of the year. We called it the 365 Day Challenge.

Okay, y’all can stop laughing now. But we did create a tree, and I scrambled to add a ton a few more leaves to take a picture for you, but it never happened. You know, when you are juggling too many balls, something is going to hit the ground.

It’s not that we weren’t thankful. The thought was there, mingling somewhere in all that brain fog of mommahood and first book releasing. It just didn’t get written down. But there’s always next year!

So what are you thankful for? Do you do anything special in giving thanks and counting your blessings?

Did you notice the new widget on the side? Secrets Kept will be touring with Prism Book Tours next month. Exciting! If you are a blogger and interested in participating, click on over to Prism Book Tours page and sign up!

AND don’t forget about the Scavenger hunt starting this Saturday! 31 authors, 31 books, AND an iPad Mini. How cool is that? For more information, visit the mastermind behind it all: Brock Eastman. If you want to see a list of all the authors participating, Jenelle Leanne Schmidt, author of King’s Warrior, put together a great post with all the links.

Have a great rest of the week! And if you’re in the USA celebrating Thanksgiving, have a safe, warm one!

    My husband and I have a “Thankful Jar.” It’s just a canning jar with our names on it. When we have something to be thankful for, we write it on a strip of paper and throw it in the jar. At the end of the year, you take turns pulling out papers and read all the things we’re thankful for! This is the first year we’ve done it, and it’s been awesome. It’s also a nice visual for thankfulness!

      Hi Rachel! Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing about your “Thankful Jar”. I love the idea, especially at the end of the year, reading them. Once our tree is full, I think we’ll try something like that. Thanks!

I love hearing from you!
