Day 1…Why Favorites? {31 Days of Favorites}

31 Days of Favorites Large Button -

We don’t need to have just one favorite. We keep adding favorites. Our favorite book is always the book that speaks most directly to us at a particular stage in our lives. And our lives change. We have other favorites that give us what we most need at that particular time. But we never lose the old favorites. They’re always with us. We just sort of accumulate them. 
― Lloyd Alexander 

I am so excited to once again link up with Myquillyn of The Nesting Place for another 31 Days series!

I had a bit of a hard time coming up with my  31 Days of series this year.  First, I thought I’d name it 31 Days of Everyday Inspiration.  Next was 31 Days of Vinyl or 31 Days of Albums You Need To Hear.  (I almost did more playlists like last year’s series, but decided I needed something new.)  Because I am an avid lover of books & words, yet other ideas were 31 Days of Inspired Reads and 31 Days of Inspired Quotes. (Notice a theme yet?)

I finally realized that I really love sharing all of those topics above with you, and I didn’t have to pick just one.

Hence, 31 Days of Favorites. 

What can you expect to find here this month?

I want you to know there will be more than just lists of faves–although there will be a good amount of that, for sure.  I’m cooking up a giveaway (or two), for starters.  There will also be interviews with some of my favorite creatives – including writers, bloggers, musicians and perhaps another surprise guest or two. To appease my avid book-list-loving self (and hopefully, some of you), I’ll be  sharing 5 days worth of favorite books reads starting next week.   Next week, I’ll also be sharing my favorite 31 Days Series from other bloggers – so let me know what you’ll be writing about if you’re participating!  I’m also hoping you’ll appreciate me sharing some of my favorite quirky things that I hope may help you know me a little bit better.

Last year, The Nester had over 1200 folks writing alongside her.  This year promises to be even bigger – so much so, she added categories!   Discover some other favorite reads for October here.

I’m linked up in my favorite category of the bunch: Too Awesome To Categorize!

I hope you’ll join me this month for 31 Days of Favorites.  If there’s a type of Favorite you’d like to read about, please don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments!

  1. Surprise us with some things you wouldn’t normally write about — favorite lipstick or nail polish? Favorite restaurant? Favorite vacation spot?
