October Goals

Changing from summer to fall has been fun, but I'm hoping that October will be a great month. September was a bit dull around here after spending months traveling back and forth from the shore, but I'm happy to have a relaxing, creative, and thrilling month. Here are some goals for October!


  • Ride out this creative streak.
  • Get to the gym at least once a week.
  • Complete these three major home projects. (Coffee table, shelves in kitchen, shelf behind sofa)
  • Make my first Etsy sale!


October is a fun month, already starting buying little Halloween decor and hoping to pick up some pumpkins to have around the house. Happy October!

August Goals

July was amazing. It's been pretty exciting around here and I hope that feeling continues through the last summer month. I've always liked August; it's always been a kind of reminder for me that summer is coming to a close and to start celebrating it more. T and I's schedules conflict a good deal in August, so I'm getting ready to embrace a lot of personal time to get stuff down and a vacation down the shore with my mom. Tons of projects on the to-do list, some in the works but unmotivated to finish. I need to really work on that.

I got a good deal of my goals completed last month, but still trying to work on setting some "fun" goals, as well as more serious ones.

  • Take camera out of the house more (& actually take photos).
  • Read, read, read.
  • Multiple farmer's market visits. As this is the last summer month, I need to get down their for some fantastic local produce.
  • Get my car washed. I literally haven't had my car washed professionally in years. It's something that I continue to put off and put off. It's weird.
  • Get this apartment together! I want the boxes gone, clutter away, slipcover finished, and art/photos hung!
  • Figure out T&I's daily routine. Even though we've been together for years, with both of us at fairly new jobs we still need to work out a few kinks.

June has been a month of waiting and getting ready and I am very ready for July. I'm ready to move, ready to be settled, and ready to get this show on the road.

July is planned to be a big month. Full of activity, new projects and posts, a week's vacation thrown in there, and hopefully tons of time spent together and with friends. These are some of my "fun" goals for the month. Bring it on July!

  • Work on my photography skills.
  • Complete 5 books.
  • Post at least 4 posts a week all month.
  • Make it through moving without a major freak out. (This one is going to be hard, but I'm ready for the challenge!)
  • Get Etsy shop up and running.
  • Celebrate the weekends more!
