Boldest move to date…went to Hawaii on vacation and didn’t come back. I loved it so much I stayed. Lived there with the clothes I packed for vacation and worked some temp jobs. Don’t regret the decision either. I’ve since moved back…not everyone can live in paradise forever.
I’m not too bold – but I did paint one wall of my daughter’s room in an argyle pattern! So I guess you could say I’m more preppy than bold.

But, really, I’m not. :P I’m not much of a bold/brave risk taker.

I’m BOLD. And how did you know? I just cut 12 inches off my hair yesterday to donate to Locks of Love. From middle of my back to chin length. Eeep!
I’m Bold. I up and moved 1200 miles away by myself when I was 20. It was an amazing experience
I’M BOLD! Actually I’m not really. But yesterday I removed chair rail from our guest room… that was pretty bold for me!
Kari @ Human, MD says
I’M BOLD! I drove around the country with a friend when I was 20. 10,000 miles, 6 weeks, and some crazy stories!
I’m BOLD because I play roller derby!
I’m BOLD! My husband and I quit our jobs last April and left for 4 months to travel around the world. Needless to say, most of our friends and families thought we were pretty crazy.
I asked for a raise at work… and I got it!
I moved away from family!
Hilary @ My So-Called Home says
I actually did cut all my hair off! It used to be mid-back and I cut it all Natalie Portman/Mia Farrow style and LOVED it. I’m back to growing it out for now as kinda my last Hoorah of long hair since it will probably be short for the rest of my life.
I recently quit my job (in advertising) so that I can go back to school, get my teaching credential, and teach kindergarten!
Something brave I’ve done… white water rafting in the smokey mountains. Thankfully we didn’t flip!
I’M BOLD! I told my date to come up for a coffee and after that, that I didn’t want him to leave. 8 years later he’s still around… as my husband, but sometimes as a date too ;-)

Three years ago I responded to a request in Runner’s World magazine that asked: “Who wants to run a 90 minute half marathon?” I entered thinking, “There’s no way I’ll be picked.” Two months later I had a coach, a nutritionist, and a physical therapist helping me along to achieve this 6:50 pace for 13 miles. My stomach was in knots for the entire 10 weeks of training. On race day a videographer and photographer followed me on motorcycle during the entire race. After mile two, I was hoping just to finish I was so nervous. I missed my goal by over 10 minutes, but was happy that I finished.
I enjoy your blog!

I’M BOLD! I say it like it is and follow my heart….I am working on following my dream to be a custom portrait photographer.
I’m BOLD! I moved halfway across the country for a guy I had been dating for only a few months. He’s now my husband and the father of our two beautiful kids! :)
I’m Bold!? Um, not so much…but I love that artwork!
I bungie-jumped off a bridge while I was studying abroad in Spain!
Steve M. says
I’M BOLD!…for this contest…not really in general…
I’m bold! Not really… I’ll have to come up with something to do now.
Tricia A says
I’m BOLD baby!!!!! : )
I’m Bold!! well maybe not really. I haven’t done anything really bold in quite a while, maybe I’m due!
I’m BOLD!!! Raising 2 little boys on my own!~
I’m bold! I kissed my college English professor!!!
Mmmmm, something brave that I’ve done. Honestly, I think being a mom is kinda brave. Is that a lame, silly answer? I don’t know.
Regardless, I love the “Houses & Birds” print.
Ashley E. says
I’M BOLD! I grabbed my now-husband for a big kiss as he was walking away after our first date. It was definitely a good idea :)
Thanks for the giveaway!
Jessica K says
In high school I shaved my head, minus my bangs. I was quite the rebel girl :P
i’m BOLD! living a year without sugar just to see if i can (and to continue on my commitment to living a healthier life!)
I did indeed just chop my hair off last Saturday. Never had my hair shorter than my chin before! I look like a pixie!
Alison F. says
I’m Bold! I moved to Hawaii by myself after college…definitely the boldest thing I have done…
I’m bold! I went camping in the Kalahari.
I’M BOLD – but not really, because I can’t think of many BOLD things I’ve done.
Megan C says
I’M BOLD! In college I went backpacking in Europe and we went cliff diving in Italy. Definitely the scariest and boldest thing I’ve done :)
I’m BOLD! I went paragliding between two mountains in Switzerland. By far the craziest thing I have every done!
I’M BOLD!! I live in Wisconsin, who does that!!
I’ve always been really scard of driving long distances by myself and last summer I went on a road trip alone. It was scary but thrilling!
I’m BOLD… My fiance (now husband) and I moved across the country less than 5 months before our wedding. It was stressful but one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.
IM BOLD. Im in the Army and have served but I think the scariest thing I ever did was get down on one knee and propose to the prettiest girl Ive ever seen :)
I’M BOLD! I gave my # to my [now husband, then cute-shy-guy] unsolicited!
Looks like it paid off…
Shannon B says
I’M BOLD and love color! These would look fab on our still bare walls!
I’M BOLD! I moved my family–including two toddlers– to Europe for three years! Fun times!
My preferred bold move is dancing like no one’s watching on an empty dance floor. It’s a tough job, but someone has to be the first!
I’m BOLD. Scuba diving was definitely a bold move!
I’m French and I live in the US ;-)…
I’M BOLD! My husband and I bought our dream house a year ago. One that a professional remodeler walked in and out of and said to us “good luck”. It’s taken a year to get it to where other people can see potential in it. So much history and so many stories, we wouldn’t trade our 100 year old project for anything!
