All In

Today is the first day of the A-Z blogging challenge.

I have no idea where this month of blogging 6 days a week is going to take me.
I don't have a specific place to talk about, a bunch of pictures to share, or a story to tell for each letter of the alphabet. Instead I wrote down a list of words, sometimes several for each letter, most of them seemingly random, with the hope that I will feel inspired and the posts will just come.

I'm taking a bit of risk that I won't have a clue what to say everyday. But really... I have a lot on my mind these days. Thoughts and daydreams that I've held back from this blog. This blog that's become mostly just a scrapbook of my weekend escapades. This month will be an unloading of sorts.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still going to post about my weekend shenanigans and fit them into the A-Z posts. But I want to get into the habit of just  writing.  Sharing, documenting, recording and not simply about what I'm doing or eating or wearing. I want to put down in words some of the feelings and unpack the ideas and thoughts taking up brain space these days. I want to be more real, more vulnerable, so that one day when I look back and read over these old posts I will remember not just where I was physically, but also who I was during this season of life.

So here goes nothing. I'm all in!
