My Life Monday - returning next week

I've been asked by many people to bring back My Life Monday (MLM). I promised them I would start again in March, so here we go. I loved this in the past and hope to do better this time around. Not sure what MLM is? Click on the label link on the right hand side to see what we have done in the past.

Your topic for next week is to write a 6 word life memoir. This is inspired by Ernest Hemingway. It is said he was once challenged to write a story in 6 words. His story was "For sale: Baby shoes, never worn." There are more examples here. So start thinking. I know it's going to take me some time to think of how to summarize my life in only 6 words. Come back next Monday after you post and leave your link for us all to read. Can't wait to see you there!

Also, if you have topic ideas for MLM, please post them or email them to me.

Hey, it's a bunch of MOFs. Hey guys! Instead of coming back to the board, I'll just visit your blog. LOL!

I love this idea for MLM. LOVE!

I' m so glad you're bringing this back! I love this topic too--and I will definitely need the week to think about it.

This is proving to be MUCH harder than I thought. I am glad you are bringing it back.
