Happy New Years Eve everyone! I cannot believe it's going to be 2014, the year I will marry my best friend.   That is so crazy to think about! All this planning and time has gone by so fast, our wedding day will be here before we know it!  My wonderful coordinator wrote a blog post about us and our engagement photos.  You can check it out here.

In honor of the New Year, New beginnings, and all the changes that come along with it, I have coordinated with Happiness is a Mood Not a Destination to bring to you our:

"Inspire Me 2014" Blog Challenge!

We totally understand that coming up with blog-worthy topics on a daily basis can be rough at times, so we created a list of topics that may spark some imagination!  We thought it would be a fun way to start off the New Year!

Really, who likes rules?  I mean they are great every once in a while, but we don't feel a need to have set rules to follow. Take these topics and run with them! We want you to enjoy blogging as much as we do without the added pressure of coming up with a topic! 
Heck, even make some new friends out of it!

Please take one of the buttons below if you'd like! Place it on your sidebar or in your post, do as you please! Otherwise, please link both our names in your post. {Showered With Design} & {Happiness Isn't a Destination}

We've left the weekends up to you. Topics have been set for weekdays only. We feel weekends should be spent relaxing and enjoying 
time with friends and family!
 (Or taking care o' business that you don't have time to do during the week)

Don't feel as if you have to make every single post this month. Please write about things you normally would, if you wish! If you want to skip a day, no big deal! Feel free to make it up on a weekend or not at all. 

Everyday we'll have a linkup section so you can link up your posts and visit other fellow bloggers.

The topics we have come up with are fun, serious and creative. Take them however you want. There isn't a right or wrong way to do them! Just start writing and see where your imagination takes you!
Thursday, January 2: Lets make the first day easy! What did you do for New Years?
