Hello, My Name Is {Write 31 Days Series}

For the past several years, I’ve watched on the sidelines as different bloggers took part in the Write 31 Days challenge.

This year I’m joining them! (and now that I’ve said it, I have to do it, right?)

For the month of October, I’ll be writing every day about what it’s like to move from one part of the country to another. I’ll write about the things we did right and the things we did wrong. I’m even planning on including interviews from different people. I’m really excited about it!
