February 2017 Goals

February 2017 Goals
Adorable mugs (the perfect Valentine's gift!) can be found at Lettered Life! This February, my word is "prepare." I want to prepare for a new 2017 team (new studio assistant + 3 new interns), prepare for upcoming courses I'll be launching on Film Photography and Team building (follow @nancyrayshop to stay in the loop!), I want to prepare for romance and a healt[...]

September 2016 Goals

September 2016 Goals
September means rhythm. I am so excited to settle into routine and embrace fall a little too early, like I usually do. I can pretty much smell the pencil shavings and new binders and new planners. Summer is over, and a fresh new rhythm of school and work settles in, and I love it. I thrive in rhythm and routine. Yes, even though no one in our home attends school, I ge[...]

August 2016 Goals

August 2016 Goals
Y'all, I'm feeling the urge to CLEAN OUT. Does that ever just hit you? When you get fed up with all your clutter, when you want to get rid of everything and start fresh? To be honest, I like to clean out when I'm avoiding doing something else difficult. It's my "go to" thing when I have something hard to accomplish, but I don't want to. It's like how I tidied my r[...]

July 2016 Goals

July 2016 Goals
I'm feeling a little like summer is slipping away. And sometimes I feel hesitant to go outside and do fun things because it's hot, or because I have too much work to do, or because I don't have time. There's always an excuse, isn't there? I'm determined to not let July slip away. These monthly goals can get on my nerves sometimes... I try to always schedule the[...]

June 2016 Goals

June 2016 Goals
I have to admit - I never really thought through the fact that as soon as we had a baby, we would automatically get 3 brand new holidays in our lives! A new birthday, Mother's Day, and now Father's day - all back to back. It's pretty great. Father's day is around the corner, and this year I've really been hit with the significance of a Father's relationship with hi[...]

April Goals

April Goals
I feel like April is about to take me on a crazy ride. Weddings, nursery prep, family vacation, baby prep, childbirth classes, and finishing everything I possibly can before maternity leave arrives on May 10th. I have a whole lot of "to do's," but I have to ask myself, what exactly are my goals? One definition of a goal is "an aim or desired result." My aim or [...]

March 2015 Goals

March 2015 Goals
February was so good. It was full of adventures and snow, progress and training, and it marked the start of my third trimester. But I will admit : the beginning of February was really hard because of one word: indecision. There were so many big things we had to make decisions about, and they were hard. For whatever reason, Will and I could not for the life of us d[...]

2015 + January Goals

2015 + January Goals
Happy New Year, friends! It's January 1st, 2015. Take a deep breath and thank God for a brand new season of life. This is your year to change, to do something different, to take hold of the life you've always wanted. If you've never set goals before, you can start today. If you've failed at previous goals, you can try again. If you don't even know where to [...]
