Hi there! My name is Anna. I’m a flip flop-loving, hot yoga-doing, local eating, super stay-at-home mom. I love all things beach, laughing until my sides hurt, and thunder storms. I live in Charleston, South Carolina, with my husband, Jason, and two kids. Julia is 5 (2009), and Maxwell is 3 (2011). In my free time, you can find me with my camera in hand photographing any and everything I can, and when I’m not free, I’m playing dress up or trains with my kids, freelance designing and writing, or learning to love running.
In The Next 30 Days is a personal challenge blog established to help me make my life brighter, shinier, and happier while making a positive difference in myself and the world around me. I challenge my health, abilities, imagination, or bliss in a different way every 30 Days. Then, I blog, write, and photograph my adventures in an honest way to share with you here. I hope that my successes, failures, challenges, and openness will inspire you to make a difference in your life, world, and habits. I really believe in inspiration through community.
Are you curious about my past challenges? Then head right over here. Or you can suggest a challenge you’d like to see right here. And please feel free to play along with your own 30 Day challenges. I love to hear your stories so that we can support each other and learn together. Community does make even the biggest challenge feel more approachable and conquerable. And if you want to follow more of my 30Days, I am on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest, and Instagram. Or you can subscribe via RSS or email. And you can always e-mail me directly at
