I don't know if it's the fact that this weekend is AUGUST (what?) or the loss of Leslie - probably a combination of the two - but I've been thinking a lot about myself and my life this week. Where I'm going, what I'm doing, how I feel about things. Just taking stock, I guess.
One big thing that keeps crossing my mind are the 'goals' I set for myself for 2015. To be honest, without looking up the list, I could have told you only one of them: to read more. Other than that, I barely even remember what I wanted to accomplish this year which is so sad. I think today - a little more than halfway through the year - is a great day to get back on track. Because although 7 months are behind us, we still have 5 months to go so it's not too late!
ONE | House Crackdown
Oh you guys. Yikes. We haven't done ANYTHING on our house this entire summer. We did do a bunch of things in the winter/spring but honestly, we were getting a bit burnt out and needed a break. So that's what we've been doing and it has felt good. We've decided that we're going to get back to business at the end of September when wedding season is over and I'm actually really excited about that. Hopefully I'll have some rooms to finally feature - only one year later :)
TWO | Give Back
Fail #2. So so so bad about this. I need to set up a auto-payment like I had at our old church in Chicago or otherwise I forget. Adding that to next weeks to do list!
THREE | Blogging
Other than this summer... I've been pretty happy with how blog things are going. I still love being here every day so I'm considering this a win!
FOUR | Visit Europe
I'd buy a ticket tomorrow if it were up to me but unfortunately, I also need someone else's permission ;) Nick is a work in progress but I'm hoping to get him there! Probably not in 2015 but good chance for 2016. Fingers crossed. In the mean time, if anyone else wants to go to Europe with me, just let me know, ha!
FIVE | Print Pictures
I actually did this last week! Yay! I printed some of Brady but I have a lot more to go. Where do people buy photo albums these days?
SIX | Be A Better Friend
This is one that I've really been making an effort at. So many of my friends have huge life events happening this summer - from weddings to law graduation to babies - and I've tried my absolute best to be there in every way that I can.
SEVEN | Bye Bye Student Loans
Haha. That is all.
EIGHT | Read More
I've been doing a TON of reading this summer! Right now I'm in the middle of All the Light We Cannot See and loving it.
Definitely an eye opener to realize I'm majorly slacking on like 75% of my goals for this year! So glad that it's not too late to get back on track. What about you guys? How are you doing on your 2015 goals/resolutions/whatever you want to call thems?
