Hurr it is! #AlphaGetToKnowMe is BACK as of 1st March! Are you joining in?

Thanks so much everyone for your suggestions. There have been some changes to the daily prompts since last year.

Each day we go through a prompt that begins with a letter of the alphabet in order from A to Z from 1st to 26th March.

The aim of the game is to practise lettering while getting to know each other! Each prompt is designed to share something about yourself. By searching the hashtag you'll get to know everyone else too.

If you're confused about what to do for the prompt, never fear! I'll be explaining the purpose behind each prompt on the day. And given Oz lives in the future you'll have plenty of time to think of your response and letter it.

To give you a head start: day 1 is a for art. The purpose behind this one is to share your story about how you got into your art. Have you been doing it for years? A couple weeks? How did you get into it? You can letter (or illustrate) as little or as much as you like, and use your caption to explain the rest. So you might letter the date you started, and explain it more in your caption.

Make sense? It sounds complicated at first but you'll get into the swing of things in no time!

Looking forward to getting to know you all! ๐Ÿ˜Š share this post (or the second image, scroll across) to show your friends you'll be joining in!

Waiting:
Minutes tick by,
the sun repeating
its journey every day.
But still the hours
have no effect.
She waits for him,
face turned up
at the window,
hoping today
he will return.

Whew lawdddd only a couple more days and A LOTTT of work separate me from this weekend ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜… #AreWeThereYet #TryingToStayPositive
So each month this year I am doing monthly challenges! I seriously recommend this over a New Years resolution. It's a nice and (dare I say it) fun way to ease into accountability. Each challenge is only 1 month and it's whatever you want it to be! PS It's never to late to start ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
For me, January was to drink a gallon of water a day (actually pretty brutal on my off days, don't recommend-maybe modify), February is no drinking alcohol and stretch/mobility for 20 minutes daily (loved this one-pretty easy and beneficial TBH), and March is no pressing snooze (pray for me- I'm the kinda person who sets 7 alarms)! And I actualllly added one to March... mostly because I'm crazy but I also need a reason to cut tha crap but it's NO SWEETS. I am stillll milking the holiday season+vacation time+bday+valentines sugars and it's gots ta go โœŒ๐Ÿผ
Someone do this challenge with me! I need a buddy ๐Ÿ‘ฏ

Who's interested in participating in my March monthly challenge? If you've been putting off joining, your time is now. Since it only takes 5 minutes or less, why not do it? Hop out of bed in the morning, get the moves done, and post to let me know you're complete. How easy is that?
Is 5 minutes going to kill you? No.
Is 5 minutes all you need to do everyday? No. I recommend at least 30 minutes a day. But if you haven't been doing anything at all, this is a great way to ease back into it and then we can talk about your next steps when the month is over.

So what are you waiting for? March 1st is only a day away. Check back and join in! Link in bio.

Day 27 of #catdoesketoproject. Pork Rinds. While I've tried to make as much food as possible at home, sometimes it doesn't happen. I happened across these @epicbar pork rinds at our WF. A great snack with good fat and no extra ingredients. Pork rinds are a popular snack in the Asian culture but sadly most are made with msg which is a big no-no.
๐Ÿ”น
These are great as a standalone snack if you want some crunch or on top of any meal for some added flavor or crunch or as an alternative to bread crumbs. They do come in a package. The good news is that this particular company supports #snouttotail and partners with farmers and ranchers that are pasture raising animals. #epicsnack #epicbar #noantibiotics
