Happy June and almost summer! It is starting to feel more and more like summer every day, with warm weather, open pools, and nightly thunderstorms to boot. Our May was filled to the brim and because of our packed schedule it seemed to go by quickly. While being busy and fully booked can sometimes feel stressful, we got to spend wonderful quality time with so many friends and family members who we don’t see often. It was a great month and having a three-day weekend right at the end was the cherry on top! I’d take another May 2017, if anyone’s asking. I’m going into June with a still busy schedule, but have great hopes for it after the great month we just had. Plus, summer is coming, and while the intense heat of July and August aren’t my favorite, June still has some beautiful long nights that I’m looking forward to filling with time outside. Without further ado: a recap of May goals and some new June goals!
– Plant herbs – I moved the basil outside and so far it has been doing well in its pot. I may plant it in a bigger pot this month, but we’ll see how it does.
– Have tea at Honeysuckle Tea House – I’m carrying this one over because we didn’t get to do it but I really want to while the weather is nice.
Celebrate with friends and family at (and on the way to) weddings – carrying this over from last month because we have more weddings coming up in May! Celebrated with lots of friends and family at and on the way to a wedding last month. We are looking forward to even more family and celebration at a special wedding this month (see June Goals below!)
Balance my work and weekend obligations with exercise – Run at least 3 times a week, do toning exercises at least once a week. I feel like I am back in a good rhythm with running again, and when the evening thunderstorms throw of my running plans I have been able to do indoor exercises. Hoping to keep this up!
Successfully work all of our end-of-school-year events at work (5 within 15 days). Halleluiah!
Spend Memorial Day weekend relaxing with friends and family (brunch?!). Memorial Day Weekend was packed to the brim with friends and family and it was so refreshing and so good! I’ll recap our brunch spread soon!
Make plan to make headboard for daybed. Made a plan, now figuring out a good time to implement.
