30 day challenge: Day 1: Relationships

My bathroom is so clean!
So sterilized!
Practically sparkling!!

Unfortunately, this is because I had a very sick little 7 year old on my hands yesterday, and the bathroom got cleaned several times yesterday, between each of her frantic runs in there.

It's so hard to see a kiddo sick. Kaylee is the kind of kid that has limitless energy and is always on the go, so you know something is wrong when she chooses to go lay down and has been sleeping for most of the last 15 hours. If you don't hear from me today, it's because I'm busy playing nurse Megan. 

In the meantime...

I've seen only a precious few bloggers in on this 30 day challenge, so I'm guessing that means it must be relatively new, otherwise there would be a lot more of us that have jumped on the bandwagon. I'm starting today, and will be writing on this for the next 30 days. Feel free to join in too!
(I don't know who started this, so I don't know where proper credit goes.)

My current relationships

As I recently told you, my husband and I just celebrated our first anniversary. Not only is this my current relationship, this is also my forever relationship.

I'm part of a mother-daughter relationship. I'm both of those things!


And a brother-sister relationship.
Except that I have NO current pictures with my brother, which is sad.

I also have lots of friendships that I treasure as well.



I know this sounds corny, but relationships truly are the most important things in life.

When something is missing in your life, it usually turns out to be someone.  
-Robert Brault

A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself — to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart.
-Leo F. Buscaglia

  30. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright
    infringement? My site has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd really
    appreciate it.

  39. I don't leave a response, however I looked at a few of the remarks on this page "30 day challenge: Day 1: Relationships". I do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind.
    Could it be only me or does it seem like some of these responses
    appear like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other sites, I'd like to follow you. Would you list of all of all your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
