Last month, Nester invited all bloggy people to join her in a “31 Days Series.” Scheduled to start in October, this series could focus on anything…from photography to holidays to imperfection.

For a month now, I’ve been debating what topic to choose. I wanted to choose something broad enough where I could actually post for 31 days without things becoming…um…stale. (“and my next tip for folding laundry is…{crowd waits with baited breath}…do it while you’re awake! {thunderous applause echoes throughout the universe})

I also wanted to choose something in which I have an interest. Because if I’m not interested in it, everything I write about it will be b.o.r.i.n.g. I myself will be bored with writing it. (So once again, my laundry folding series is slammed.)

I talked to my hubby about it to see if he had any brainstorms for me. He did have some good ideas, but nothing really grabbed me or made me excited to write about it for 31 days.

Until…

the little light-bulb went on.

Introducing:

Right here.

Starting October 1.

Ending October 31.

31 days of ways to build your marriage.

Now, before I say anything else…allow me to say this:

I am not an expert in married life, marriage counseling, or marriage in general.
I do not imagine myself to be even the slightest bit of an expert.
Gracious, I’ve only been married for 3 years (& 3 months, but who’s counting?) :)

But the point of this series is to learn together. I’m excited to prepare for this series because it gives me extra  motivation to learn about strengthening this all-important relationship.

I am really looking forward to learning together. Besides, I know a lot of you who read this have been married a lot longer than I have (hi, mom & dad! ;) ) so I’d be super glad to hear your comments – especially during the series.

So, what about you? 31 Days of Building Your Marriage.

Are you in for this challenge? Let’s learn together!

  2. I’m asking, do you have to blog about your topic every single day for 31 days? Saturday, Sunday, Christmas, Easter, no matter what? haha, just asking. I don’t think I have 31 days of energy in me right now, homeschool starts in 5 days :-O

    Hugs,
