I’M BOLD! Last May I quit my job, finished up a graduate degree, and had a baby. Before the end of the month my husband and I had also moved two states away. Stupid, actually, might be a better word for it. . .
i’m finishing grad school and doing my internship while being a mom to 2 toddlers. feel like i’m running 10 places at once!
I’M BOLD! I went cliff-jumping into the Saranac River!
I’m Bold… I started a dairy with my husband. My family is from Barcelona – It is a beautiful city. : )

I’m bold!! I’m now a runner, I logged 19 miles last week!!
I am bold! I proposed to my husband to be!
I’m bold! Well, not really. But these prints are beautiful!
i’ve been skydiving, and i’d do it again!
I’M BOLD! Hmm… well probably the boldest/bravest thing I’ve done is when we rescued a dog off the street. He needed surgery and I was able to raise the money for him to have it and then he was adopted out! For someone who hates to fundraise because I feel bad asking people for money, it felt good that I got brave enough to get the money together.
I’m bold! I tell my sister in law what I think! ;)
I do bold stuff all the time… painted my bathroom the boldest, brightest green you’ll find in anyone’s home, I chop my hair off randomly, got my nose pierced… that kind of stuff.
because I’ve moved to a foreign country twice, not knowing anyone! The last time I came home married to the love of my life. :)
I used to be afraid of public speaking, so I took on a (talk!) radio show that ran every week for an hour, that i had to fill with witty banter, guest interviews and generally just a heck of a lot of talk! Did it for two years before I finally decided that I had learned how to speak in public.
I moved to India with my then-boyfriend, now husband, for 3 1/2 months. It was amazing, but also very difficult!

I sent a message to a guy I didn’t know on MySpace (remember MySpace?). Is that even brave? It felt brave. Anyway, he is my husband now and we are expecting a little girl in 5 weeks! So, it worked out well.
I wanted to go skydiving shortly after college graduation…My ‘college sweetheart’ told me I should stop talking about since I’d never do it…Guess what I did the VERY next day? Yup. I went skydiving. I then called the boyfriend and broke up with him. Don’t underestimate this lady! ;)
I’m Bold!! I recently got bangs. May not seem ‘bold’ to most, but it sure was a HUGE step for me, I hadn’t had bangs since middle school!

About to have 4th baby.
Holly H says
Sold/Packed up all my stuff and moved to Europe 4 years ago without a huge plan, but doing just fine!
I’M BOLD! My now husband and I had just started dating and we repelled off of a waterfall! It was scary but invigorating at the same time!
i chopped off 18inches of my hair and donated it!
Ashley z says
I’m Bold!! I recently bought my own business!! Scary but exciting!
I’M BOLD! I just quit my job to stay home full-time with my 7.5 month old son :-)
well, actually, I’m really not. But I wouldn’t mind a nice bold print for our new house. :)
Wow, these are gorgeous!
I’M BOLD!!! I had babies… anyone who does that is BOLD. :-)
After a really bad break-up, I went to the hair dresser and had her chop it ALL off! I’ve done that a few times actually – I find the change helps me feel lighter and ready to face a new day in a different light!
I’M BOLD! I just got married!
My husband and I had began to plan a big wedding, and then a couple months into planning we scrapped everything and eloped!
I’M BOLD! I jumped from a second story roof top into a pool using a table umprella as a parachute!
In fact, I’m SO bold that I recently packed up all my belongings in my Jeep and drove across country by myself (well, with my cat and dog) to relocate before I even had a job lined up.
Elisa Chappelle says
I’m bold because I love bright colours!! My car is bright orange, and you can usually find me wearing lime green, bright yellow or a vibrant shade of blue!
I’m bold! I teach middle school. Enough said.
I’m BOLD. … I changed my major.
I asked the hubby out on our 1st date…I just got tired of waiting on him to get up the nerve to ask me :)
Miranda W. says
I’ve gone cave diving and it was a blast!
Stephanie L. says
I’M BOLD. I went whale watching in a zodiac (pretty much an inflatable boat with a motor) even though I’m terrified of the ocean. We were 6 feet from whales that were bigger than our boats!
okay i’m not, but one of these prints would look awesome in my house. the bravest thing i do is karaoke. :)
I once swam in the Arctic Ocean. In a bikini.
funny you gave “professing your love to an unsuspecting friend” as an example. I did just that. almost 5 years ago and never looked back (except to reminisce)…we are getting married this Oct!
Well, I’m working on it…
Megan R. says
I’M BOLD, I married a man completely opposite of me and we now have two beautiful children and a very happy marriage :)
