Happy Monday!

How is your journey of discovery going? Have you conquered all thirteen challenges?

Today is for hearing from you. I have opened the comments below for you to share how your adventure is going? Hopefully, you are having fun with it. Tell us the funnies, share some pictures, add your own interpretations.

Since the challenge began at the beginning of April, I picked out a few favorites from the list. Any excuse I get to explore I take it, so challenge #5 offered me endless opportunities for discovery and fun. Maybe it is the nice weather or the excitement of going somewhere new? I have spent a lot of time exploring Cedar Rapids this month. I explore new places on my weekends and it gives me loads to share with my coworkers when I see them again.

I also tackled #9, attending a live performance hosted in town. A friend and I went to a concert to see one of my favorite bands play. The night was so memorable and I whooped and hollered until my voice box was sore.

Summer months often bring free events in the park. Seek those great, free events out. Performers inspire us with their work. Who wouldn’t want to be inspired for a full summer ahead?

I saved the toughest task for last, #10 was my daunting challenge. I forged my way into new territory this month. I explored urban fantasy, and by seeking out a new genre I met a local author who I am so excited to introduce to all of you next month. Erin Casey, is a Cedar Rapids fantasy writer with her third book on the way. I met our feature author, who is an absolute wonderful person, by picking up a genre I would never read before.

13 days went by quick but that short time kick started a summer of living out our stories. If you would like to participate in the challenge too?
