she posted on her blog about 52 weeks of adventure. she saw another lady named Brenda who encouraged people to adventure in 2015 as well. here is a snippet of what Brenda writes on her blog about the Embark:52 weeks of adventure:
"Embark with me as I take fifty-two adventures and re-discover the joy of ordinary life being lived to its fullest.
I challenge you to find a way to learn, to grow, to care and to breathe, each day, for fifty-two weeks. Nourish your mind, soul, heart and body. And each week, go on an adventure."
I am always up for an adventure. my husband has taught me how to adventure. I am hoping this 52 weeks will teach me how to see adventure in my every day, not just the adventure of camping with two young children or a trip to just about anywhere or a hike through the forest. I am hoping to see the adventure in my days at home with my daughter, in the activity's that my son participates in, in a "trip" to the grocery store.
so here is my first adventure for 2015...........
I am participating in #documentedfaith over at Stephanie Ackerman's Blog.
I first found out about it on instagram through a college friend, Virginia.
you can find information here. it looked fun and interesting and faith building of course. I love seeing everyones journal posts on facebook. it is, however, scary because everyone's art work and hand lettering is so amazing and beautiful but I am determined to not let that get me down or bother me. to enjoy the beauty that others create and to create my journal, however, I work. right now it is mainly just a jumble of words on a page, but I love it. Stephanie documented her week one here. check it out.
I have posted just a few of the pictures that I took of my journal so far. I chose a Katie Daisy journal that I already had because really, I was coming into this journey on December 30th and didn't have a ton of time to get all fancy with my journal and Katie's art work is one of my favorite things and it was already so lovely. see:
all I really did was add some washi tape to the edges. (I need to finish doing that. I just go the edges of the beginning of every month so I knew where to start and stop.) see:
had on her blog this cool Happy New Year coloring page that I printed off and put on the first page of the book. see:
and finally I added this weeks verse to the next page and inserted a resolutions page that I printed and filled out from here. let me say I usually don't do new years resolutions I prefer to set goals or dream as Robin Jones Gunn so beautifully put it. but I liked the act of filling this page out and folding it up and keeping it in this journal.
i have more in it since i started setting it all up on December 31st but just have not gotten any more pictures of it. i have added tip-ins which i had no clue what those were but love them. excited for this adventure and journey in faith as i document things this 2015. i am sure that i will hold all of these 52 adventures as well. thank Lily for your post and the excitement of a new year.
