august goals

Rabbit rabbit! Welcome to August! I’m excited that August means we are nearing the end of summer (and heat and bugs!), but also sad that the flexibility of summer is coming to an end. Since my job revolves around the academic year, with back to school, August usually brings a busier work schedule. However, July has been so insanely busy with week-long events almost every week that I’m looking forward to (dare I say) a slightly slower August. That said, I’m traveling almost every weekend of August so “slightly slower” is relative. To make sure I don’t overexert myself this month and burn out by September, I’m only setting a few August goals. Grace is the key for this month.

Let’s check in on those July goals first:
-Celebrate the 4th of July with fun, family, and food
-Find a paint color for the second bedroom – Tried so hard on this one; we tested 5 color samples on the walls and didn’t like any of them. Trying again this month 
-Spend a weekend relaxing at the lake with family and friends
-Pick blackberries
-Get/order wedding gifts for our next three weddings
-Celebrate with friends at a wedding (I’m excited about the venues for this one! The other weddings we have been to this year have all been gorgeous, but I haven’t known anything about the locations/venues since most of them have been in different cities and states.The venues for this one are local, and places I have been, but never for a wedding. I’m excited to experience them in a different setting!)
-Make a plan or a timeline for our list of projects
-Run regularly, even in the heat
-Celebrate a childhood friend and soon-to-be mama
-Continue to use my Write the Word journal regularly throughout the weekDid really well at this in the first half of the month, then still used it but the regularity slowed down. Marking it done because it was better than last month.
