  1. Hey there!
    So, we have never had any conversations together up to this point. *Waves* I am loving all these challenges, and I am going to give them a shot, too! See you in 2018. Thanks for sharing these challenges.

  2. Hey!
    I am participating in pretty much the same challenges you are. Hopefully we will both complete these by the end of this year.
    As exciting as it is to plan and participate in these challenges, it also worries me. Since I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself. Let’s see how this year goes.
