March 2017 Goals (& our 90 day Rocks!)

March 2017 Goals (& our 90 day Rocks!)
I'm going to share a brief little story that has helped me SO much over the past year. It's a little cheesy, but stick with me, because it's really good! ••• One time there was a professor, and he filled a big glass jar with a bunch of rocks. He asked his class, "Is this jar full?" Of course his students said yes! But then he reached under his table and filled t[...]

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[...]

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[...]

December Goals 2014

December Goals 2014
There are so many reasons I adore December. I love cozy fires and hot chocolate, twinkle lights and the smell of Christmas trees, lazy family time and tradition. I love chilly runs on the greenway, mulling spices that my mom sends me each year, date nights and Christmas movies. I love movies that open on Christmas day, white elephant gift exchanges, being extra ge[...]

October Goals

October Goals
Yes yes yes. I love this sign and I keep it on my desk. This is my mantra this month! September was my month of traveling, shooting, and hosting my nieces and nephews... twice. It was full of all the important things, and it was wonderful, but I am SO happy to see you, October. I am declaring you are my month of simplicity. No traveling. No additional events or[...]
