Oh, hey!

You must be or or will be a part of this situation:  A challenge created by home blogger, Myquillyn Smith (of The Nester). I stumbled upon the challenge after a wonderfully inspiring email from Jess over at Naptime Diaries popped into my inbox. The blogger writing challenge was within, and I felt propelled to accept. I'm a writer by nature, at heart, and have lately lacked momentum.

Challenge can often portray as threatening, but in this context it felt like exercising a muscle long overdue. The necessary nurturing encouragement that, while not promising to go easy on me, filled me with promise that comes with crossing the finish line at the end.

Picking a topic came fairly easy, in that my blog has always been structured simply: I write letters. To myself, to family,...maybe even to you. They're called salty letters: here's why. We'll see where this journey takes us. Enjoy, please comment and follow, and most of all consider yourself blessed.
