Welcome to our 31 Days of Rest & Risk!

Yes, I said “our” – My husband, Greg & myself will tag-team write this month. Last year I accepted Nester’s challenge and wrote 31 Days of Our Lives. This year, I asked Greg to write with me because 1) we’re married; 2) we make a good team; and 3) normally, he’s the RISK & I’m the REST. This month, we’re gonna mix it up a bit.

Just with about any experience in life, it’s your experience. You may learn something completely different based on your experiences and life status. During this 31 Days we will share what WE have learned about Rest & Risk. We hope you enjoy our stories, our attempts at Rest & Risk and learn from our failures and our successes.

All of the posts will be right here at carolineteselle.com. There may be a few days where Greg shares his stories on his website, but you can bookmark this page, or add us to your RSS feed or Subscribe to make sure you stay with us this month.

Thanks for joining us! Also, be sure to check out the rest of the 31 Dayers!

    I love that you are doing this as a couple. My husband is generously offering to help me in any way he can with my 31 days (likely because he keeps spying my famous ‘frozen face’ as I try to comprehend what I’m taking on :)

    Looking forward to what you both have to say!

    I too am participating in the series. My topic is “Decor To Adore~ finding your style”. I would like to invite you to stop by anytime.

    Have a beautiful day and a wonderful fall season.
