If you wrote a sentence a day and posted about it, please link up here:

Question: Are you going to join us this month and write one sentence a day? It’s lots of fun to look back at the month; I promise.

Be well,


  1. What a fun project.
    I may have to try this next month---it's such a great idea!!
    ps...that photo of the sunset is just gorgeous. Did you take that on your phone?

    1. Yes, please join us, Jodie! It is so much fun!

      And, yes, my husband took the photo with his iPhone.

  2. Anonymous3/02/2017

    That's such a fun idea!


  3. So glad you joined with the ladies to do this sentace a day Andrea! Man do I ever love that heart scarf of years, such pretty colors! I hope you're having a great day, almost Friday!

    1. Thanks, Andrea! I love the heart scarf, too.

  4. This is such a fun series. I try to limit myself to a couple cups of coffee a week, it is hard tho!! I have been training for a half marathon and I am always exhausted afterwards!


    1. So far, being really strict and sticking to one cup of coffee a week is working. I know if I loosen up my rules, I'll be in trouble... And I can imagine that you are exhausted after half marathon training!

  5. It's so fun to look back at the week and see everything you were doing and how you were feeling.

    1. Yes! I am really glad I started joining you!

  6. That's a great thing to do! And lovely to read. Perhaps I should try that too. Have a great weekend dear Andrea!

    1. Yes, I hope you'll join us, Nancy! It's really great to look back at the month. It's amazing how quickly we forget what we did and what happened...

  7. Loved reading your recap! You are such a fun mom too! Glad you had a great time at the aquarium with the family! Have a wonderful weekend, love!
    xoxo, Vanessa

    1. Thanks so much Vanessa! Hope you had a great weekend! What an exciting time in your life with your due date fast approaching...

  8. Look at you with a couple of short sentences in the mix this month!! I think mine were longer than ever. Might try one month to just write 5 word sentences and see what happens.

    What a lovely sunset picture. Glad you captured it before crashing on the couch. We skipped workouts entirely for a week and are just getting back on track. I absolutely need to make sure I get to the gym while PC is out of town next week.

    You guys shared such fun activities. Wish you would join me for my spring bucket list posts. You are always doing something different, or taking little get-away trips...put them on down on paper for spring and call it a bucket list and join me!!

    1. It's hard to keep the sentences short...

      I've been going to the gym or a barre class for over a month but had to take a break yesterday as my legs just couldn't move... I felt much better during my workout today... It was good to remember that sometimes a rest day is just as important as a workout...

      I'll look into joining you for the bucket list posts!
