MARCH GOALS

sorry about the silence over here the last few days. i went back to wisconsin for the long weekend and though my intentions of having posts prescheduled were good, the only one that actually happened was saturday’s link post. and visiting family and friends trumped blog posts so…my apologies. let’s start talking about those goals for february. i stretched myself too thin. i had a feeling i was going to when i published them a…

ONE LITTLE WORD IN JANUARY

my one little word for 2015 is start. it seems so abstract though. start what? start decorating our house? start projects? start reading more? start making new friends? start cooking again? start working out again? yes to all of the above. i’m not sure where this word is headed when i picked it in january but i know where i want it to be. so in order to make these things happen, i’ve implemented a…

FEBRUARY GOALS

as i mentioned in january, i love making goals and even though i set out with yearly goals for 2015, i also wanted to tackle some monthly goals so i can achieve my yearly goals. last month i did really well. while i didn’t read three books in january, i did read one spectacular book and got halfway through another really good one. and i didn’t paint both guest bedrooms like i set out to…

JANUARY GOALS

GOALS FOR THE YEAR

i’m not a huge one for new year resolutions but more for goals that will stick with me long after the year is over. i tried setting monthly goals last year and only made it through half the year before life got in the way and monthly goals went wayside because my main goal for the last half was to try to keep my head above water. my focus on goal setting this year is…

ONE LITTLE WORD FOR 2015

my one little word in 2014 served me well. it was simplify. i was surprised how big that word became part of me. i was constantly thinking about it in everything i did whether it was simplifying the physical items in my home to the number of emails i subscribed to to the amount of blogs i read and everything in between. simplify kept popping up and cheering me on when i did great or…
