It is week two of your New Year’s Resolution which makes this week’s Challenge so well-timed. Allison of Go Dansker Mom is a former ballerina who is now navigating the world of two boys. But I think that is like saying you were a former Marine, once a dancer always a dancer just like you are always a mom. Both experiences led Allison to today’s Challenge. Continue reading
With the holiday craziness (that freaking ELF), we took a short break from the Challenge series. I am so happy that for our first Challenge of the New Year a friend from my real life is willing to share her challenge.
I’ve said it before, but I am always amazed when a friend in real life will share their challenge with the world. Today I would like to introduce you to my friend who has really taught me a lot about finding my voice. As we live in a small town, she prefers to remain anonymous. Please welcome my Beautiful Friend whose extraordinary child presented her with an unexpected challenge.

But it is not always easy. Especially on long homework nights and the general craziness that happens with two children having multiple activities. To help with that Challenge I am so proud that Anna from FitFunner is here today on the My Challenge series. Continue reading
Then I met David and he “introduced” me to one of his best friends: Jenn. I am not sure who was more surprised. We fell into that old friendship like you pull on that pair of comfortable winter pajamas and never took them back off.
Without further introduction, please meet my friend Jenn and her Challenge.
