day 27

Why are you doing this 30 day challenge?

This challenge is fun and a great way to help me blog on a daily basis. On a personal level, I was forced to think about certain things that I coined the term "off-limits." So far day 24 has been the most difficult and at the same time eye-opening. This 30 day challenge is surely a challenge. I love it.
