Coffee Date Chatter

Today's topic : A farewell coffee date.  Take some time to breathe, sip a warm drink, and share with your new blogging buddies.

I cannot believe it is the last day of the blogtember challenge 2015.  Time flies when you are having fun. :)  I've mentioned this before, but the reason this blog started was to document my two week adventure to Chile with a group from my university.  I had raised money for the trip and felt strongly about keeping family and friends updated back home.  It was the longest international trip I had taken, I did not know the group very well prior to traveling to Chile, and it brought me out of my comfort zone in numerous ways.

So, A Life Anchored in Hope began.  To update people back home and save my thoughts + memories so I could one day look back and remember the little details. :)

Upon arrival back home from Chile I knew that I wanted to keep posting on here but was not sure which direction I wanted to take it.  Eventually I just decided it would be more of a lifestyle blog as it is a mixture of travel, faith, fashion, and soon to be more topics of interest.

It took a while to maintain a posting schedule as I was finishing up college and studying for my boards exam for physical therapy.  Eventually I reached the point where I was beyond excited to dive into this blog and just write.  About that time, I saw Bailey Robert's post about the blogtember challenge.  Having never heard of or done anything like this before, I was intrigued.  The daily topics for the month of September were right up my alley.  I enjoyed writing about an assortment of topics and hearing what other bloggers had to say.

And just like that, we have reached the end of September.  Can you believe it is almost October, already?  This challenge has prepared me to set up a regular posting schedule for the following months to come.  And I would love to participate in another challenge like this.  

For the other fabulous bloggers who participated in this challenge, what did you think?  I would love to hear your thoughts!  Looking forward to keeping up with some new bloggers I discovered thanks to Bailey. :)

On that note, farewell for now!  And enjoy the last day of September!
