February was filled to the brim with celebration and travel and hosting. Every weekend we had somewhere to go or people to host – which were all wonderful and filled our cups. But, just as the start of February was a nice fresh start, so is the beginning of March. March brings a new set of things to look forward to, new celebrations, and another step closer to spring – one of my favorite times of the year! I can’t wait for some of the things on my schedule this month, so let’s get started with some March goals to help make it all happen!
Before we move on to March goals, let’s recap February’s progress.
Meet our new niece!!! – Such a sweet and beautiful and perfect little baby!
– Read book at least 2 nights/week – I failed miserably at this one. I read a good chunk of my book in a few sittings, but definitely not 2 nights per week.
Finish Bible in one year reading plan – Yes! It took me more than a year, but I finished reading the entire Bible!
Host baby shower – This was so fun and made me extremely grateful for this group of friends we’ve made here in Nashville. The photo above was the savory portion of our spread :).
Make Valentine’s sugar cookies (a family tradition) – Made these delicious cookies for Valentine’s Day and for the aforementioned baby shower.
Be present and spend intentional time with family on our trips and their visits – There was very little phone time and lots and lots of family time this month, with 3 out of 4 weekends spent with our families in three different states.
Find all lodging for an upcoming trip – Found lodging and booked it for all but one night!
Find a clean moisturizer/night cream – Finally found one! We’ll see if it is any good.
– Start a Headspace course – Nope, not at all. This may get back on the list later in the year.
– Create a list of things to do/places to eat in Nashville for friends and family – I made a brief list for my sister’s visit, but need a more “Nashville” list for others who may want to do some of the touristy things.
– Be intentional about participating in Lent
– Finish reading The Dutch House
– Celebrate Will’s birthday!
– Do or make something fun for St. Patrick’s Day (maybe this will start a new tradition)
– No Instagram after 7:00 pm (I’ve gotten into a bad habit of checking whenever I’m free and could be doing so much more with my time – like writing blog posts ;) )
– Start a list of go-to meals to make for new parents. With the arrival of our new niece last month, and the expectation of a friend’s baby in Nashville this month, this feels like a good time to start putting this list together. Those of you who have been recipients, tell me what is great or what to avoid!
