A Year of Challenge: November

No way November, I wish I could hug you. It’s December 2012 now, but I already miss November 1st. The first day of No Way November, the name I give for the time between November 1st and St. Patrick’s Day because somehow John Mayer’s turned me a little superstitious and these months are sacred. Also, John Mayer just came up on shuffle. Like of all 7800 songs in your iTunes, John Mayer came on seconds after you wrote his name. Awesome.

There’s not a monthly challenge that goes with your 101 in 1001 list, but there’s a very obvious challenge here so let’s go with it.

November: 30 days of Thanksgiving. Every day, write down the things you’re thankful for from that day. Maybe it will have a delay so you can write about everything you’re thankful for from the day before. Whatever… just be thankful and share it.
