Small Goals: October


In the words of the amazingly indescribable Anne of Green Gables, "I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."

It's here! Pumpkin everything, cooler weather EVEN IN TEXAS, and the best of all -- soup season! 

I love October more than I could possibly express to you. I love feeling the air change. Though it's always bittersweet in Texas because the leaves changing is something I miss terribly. September was full of good stuff. I hosted a wonderful workshop at The Paper + Craft Pantry, I visited Round Top, Texas, I started hosting one on one marketing + social media classes and I felt like I finally had some progress health wise. This month ended feeling like a win, even though parts of it were low + stressful. 

1) Get back in the habit of swimming regularly. 
Sort of kind of? at the end of the month I recommitted to making health a part of my daily routine. and in October I'm going to try biking! 

2) Blog more & contribute to another blog. 
DONE! I blogged fairly regularly here with my new goals in mind + I wrote this blog on scheduling for The Paper + Craft Pantry. 

3) Buy some clothes that make me feel good. 
You guys. This is a big deal and I'm super happy about it. One of my only fitness goals was to fit into jeans sold in store at Old Navy and I BOUGHT 5 pairs (for 10 dollars, too, thanks clearance!) 

4) Find a new hydration app and STAY HYDRATED. 
I didn't find an app but I did recommit myself to hydrating. So there's that! 

5) Fill up 2 new recipe cards with ✨new✨ recipes I like.
I bought this recipe book from Julia Turshen instead and so far my favorites are the Turkey Meatballs, Indecision Chicken + her amazingly incredible Jam Buns! 

For October my goals look a little something like this... 

1) Try a new work-out routine. 
2) Write things down more. 
3) Sell some clothes and some camera equipment. Maybe to Uptown Cheapskate? Maybe on Poshmark? 
4) File my taxes. 
5) Channel my inspiration into a mood board.
