I quit my job after 3 years without having a new one because I knew it was not my path and I would find something that was meant to be if I opened the space in my life…and I did!
I’M BOLD!” and I wish I was crafty!!!
I decided I was leaving my job in a year and half to pursue my passion whether or not my savings account and everything else (or anyone for that matter) indicated that it was a good idea.
Because I have been skydiving – but yet I am not willing to chop all my hair off :)
I love Judy Kauffman’s work!!!
I am taking a risk and leaving my current, quite stable job to pursue my dream job!

I’m bold because I love to go white water rafting! It’s always such a rush.
I’m bold! I went backpacking across Europe with my college roommate!
I got a tattoo this past summer.
I confessed a crush on a friend.. and got rejected, but it all worked out. Now I’m happier than I would have been with that loser any day:)
I’ve spent hours walking through rattlesnake infested (and I do mean INFESTED) prairie while working on archaeological sites.

I wear zebra print clogs!
I backpacked through Europe – solo – when I was 20.
I moved to africa by myself. And then I met my husband there. We’re very romantic like that.

I performed a dance solo in front of 500+ people dressed in cow print pants!
I’m bold…kinda….sometimes…maybe…I think.
When I was 20 I took a job as an actor for a cross country touring childrens theater production. In a weeks time I had the audition, rehearsals and headed onto the road with just me, myself, and my tour partner. By far the best thing I’ve ever done, but also the scariest (and definitely didn’t make my mom very happy at the time).

Went to France knowing no one and came back married to a Frenchman! Now that’s bold because those Frenchies can be kinda crazy… :)
1.5 years ago hubby and I packed all our belongings into a U-haul and moved to NC… without jobs. After a little elbow grease and hard work we’re making more, have higher job satisfaction (hello, my husband works at a local brewery.. how cool is that?!) and even bought a HOUSE (which was waay out of our reach in the $$$ suburbs outside DC.) Now I’m busy stalking this blog to make our house a HOME :D
I’m very Bold!
I’M BOLD! I once snowshoed on a frozen river in January – and fell through the ice! Come to think of it, I don’t know if that’s bold or just plain stupid… :-o
I’M BOLD! For no special reason :)
spent a summer in china in college and knew no chinese. so fun. :)
Anna Taylor says
I think that is just the way I am. I’m not afraid to say what’s on my mind. However, I did also just chop my hair off short when it had been really long for a while. I miss it ;(
I’m Bold!! I hate exercising but somehow my sister talked me into running a 10K with her. It’s not that bold but for someone who hates to run it is:)
I ran in my first marathon back in March. I’m not a runner. Not all that dangerous, but it was a huge accomplishment for me.
I’m Bold! I moved from Illinois to Georgia without a job lined up and I didn’t know anyone in Georgia.

I joined the Peace Corps in 1998 and spent two years in Bulgaria. It changed my life!
Ashley Lynn says
I ripped up all of the carpeting in my house yesterday, with absolutely zero plan for how I want to put it back together! I’ll figure it out :)
I backpacked around Europe with my best friend after college. We had no plans and no place to be-just a train ticket that could take us wherever we wanted to go. We did some VERY bold things in those weeks and I’ll never forget the memories as long as I live!
I’M BOLD! I don’t need anything for happiness but my best friend (and husband), so bring on the adventure! :)
I was the first to say “I Love You” to my now husband when we were still dating. It was a very unnerving experience for both of us, but I had to! :)
I’m BOLD!!! I started running after I had my first baby and just completed a 1/2 marathon!
Aja Monarrez says
I’m bold…I’m a mortician:)
Jen M says
I’M BOLD… and I love, love, love, bold colour!
Because I just bought a few yards of BRIGHT RED FAUX LEATHER at the fabric store. ??? Maybe I can recover my kitchen chairs? Oh my.
I just sold my house on a whim and have nowhere to live. (so where will I put my new prints!?)
Stephanie Klemm says
I attempted natural childbirth. And even though I failed, I’m willing to try again for every future child.
Boldest thing I’ve done is run a half marathon.
The boldest thing I’ve ever done was go to Bonaroo with my now husband but at the time we were only dating 2 months. If you dont know, Bonaroo is a mini Woodstock concert festival complete with camping in the middle of nowhere for 3 days, no showers, only port-a-johns, and sleeping in a small neon because your tent flooded the first night:)all at 2 months of dating.
I’M BOLD!!! Boldest thing I have done – probably skydiving!
ummm, ok, I can’t think of anything particularly bold right now!
I’m having a baby soon and i’m trying to finish my PhD!
i’m bold! :)
…except not really…
I did actually go skydiving. It was a high school graduation gift because I’ve wanted to do it my whole life. I took a 6 hour class and then was able to skydive on my own at the end of it. It was freakin amazing!
I’m not sure I actually do too many bold things though lol. I did dye my hair really dark once, and I am a fair-skinned blonde. It actually looked good! Kinda brought out this dark, sexier side of me haha! Okay, maybe not…but it was a fun, different look for me! I am not back to blonde!
Heather L says
I painted my master bedroom a bold peacock blue (not unlike the back of your bookcases). It was a bold move for me, as the rest of my house is neutrals.
