On my birthday, I plan on taking a break from everything (ah the beauty of being self-employed), and doing whatever I want all day long. I’m going to do all of my favorite things, including take pictures, eat a cupcake (from Sprinkles), visit Whole Foods, and go to the library. Out of all of those things, going to the library/bookstore is my favorite. I don’t do it often, because I just don’t have the time. I walk in and end up browsing for hours.
I thought it would be fun to encourage all of you to budget the time this month to do one of your favorite things. The catch is, that it has to be something that’s free! Going to the library is free, so that will be mine. Yours could be picnicking, biking, tennis, visiting a museum, window shopping, baking, painting, going to the park with your kid(s), or whatever else tickles your fancy. This challenge will not only give us the chance to learn a little more about each other and what we love to do most, but also might spark some ideas for things we can do in our own neighborhoods for free.
Criteria For This Months Challenge:
1. Participate in your favorite free activity.
Note: For this challenge, we are going to define free as “things you don’t spend money on to participate in right then”. So if you want to play tennis at the country club you paid an annual membership fee for, we’ll count that activity as free because you didn’t have to break out your wallet for that specific trip.
2. Take a picture! (Always take a picture, it makes your contribution to the challenge much more interesting!)
To sign up all you have to do is comment below. Remember, you have to sign up for each challenge separately by commenting on the appropriate post. I will add you to a weekly reminder email list, unless you specify otherwise in your comment. The last week of the month I ask that you email me your photos and description to share with everyone else.
