Thanks for the Memories: Memory Lane Wrap-Up and July’s Lent

When I started this challenge, I had a grand vision of recording a memory a day for the entire month, ending up with 30 perfectly written little life stories by May 31st. Ha! As with almost everything in life though, things usually take at least twice as long as you think they will—which was certainly true in this case. Recording all these memories took quite a bit of time, and even after extending the challenge into June, it was still tough—or let’s be honest: impossible—to fit them all in.

Alas, I wasn’t able to recall every last beautiful moment of my life thus far, but I’m happy to have at least some of the best and brightest on record. Before I officially sign off with this lent, I’d like to give a sincere thank you to each and every single person in my life—whether I was able to write out a memory about you or not—because without you these memories wouldn’t exist and my life wouldn’t be as blessed and beautiful as it is. So, thanks for the memories guys, I mean it xoxo

And on that note, cue the Bob Hope send off:


So, now what? If you like 12MOL of Facebook or Twitter you may have seen my post last Saturday polling which challenge I should take on for July: a 21-Day Sugar Detox, or learning to play the ukulele. The response was overwhelmingly in favor of the uke so I’m goin’ for it—for my very first musical challenge, I will teach myself to play the ukulele (and take advantage of my in-house stringed instrument expert, Mr. Dan Kaplan). I don’t have the details entirely worked out, but I’m feeling like this month will involve lots of embarrassing video updates and definitely a pretty serious grand finale performance that’s TBD. Any suggestions?

Next Step: Buy a ukulele and figure out how to play it. Piece o’ cake. Anyone have any resources for me? Books, YouTube videos? Local ukulele experts to hit up? I’ll need all the help I can get…
