A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO GOAL-SETTING

if you’ve been here for a bit, you already know that i love setting goals and challenges for myself. you also know though that i hardly ever follow through with them completely. and it’s bad and i’m tired of it. it seems like i get bored quickly with my goal/challenge or don’t have time to focus on it or simply forget about it. 2015 is going to be different. and i am so excited about…

WORDY WEDNESDAY

thankful for sweet family that we never met before inviting us in to their for thanksgiving. it was the biggest holiday i’ve ever been to in terms of people. there were so many brothers and sisters and kids everywhere and it was incredible. it made me want to have ten kids just for huge family events.  also feeling very thankful for morgan who invited me out to meet with her and some of her blogger…

MILE A DAY

Pumpkin Spice Lattes, colorful leaves underneath knee high boots, and flannel. Seriously. Even though it’s pretty much the same thing every year I never grow tired of it. Take me to a place that is fall every day of the year and I would be…

MAKING EVERY DAY COUNT

image found on pinterest of course i saw this quote a few weeks ago and it has been resonating in my mind ever since.  this year has been one of the quickest years i have ever experienced.   i know i say this often but honestly, i feel like we just rang in 2014 and here we are closing out the summer and welcoming a brand new season….one that leads into another very long season.…

JULY GOALS

source from here New month, new goals!  But first a quick recap on June… 1)  Make a Pinterest board of all the projects I want to make in 2014…and start making them!  Pinterest board updated…check!  Any of the projects started…nope.  Hey I got the fun part done at least, right? 2)  Drink 60 ounces of water daily (at least).  I know I drank more water than I normally do but definitely not 60 ounces.  Nope.  Definitely…
