September small goals & a little update!

Oh boy, did I ever forget about last month's goals. To be honest I'm going back to look at them right now and I have no clue what I'm in for. 

Oh! Okay! It's not that bad! Here are last month's goals & how I did. 

1) Stick to a monthly budget. 
Sort of? We made a budget and we worked really hard to stick to it but a bunch of unexpected stuff came up. We're trying again this month.

2) Makeover our bedroom.
Not even a little bit. 

3) Bake a cobbler
I did it! Yay!

4) Go to 10 classes at the YMCA.

5) Plan a vacation.
Yes! I did it! And I'll be writing all about it this week :) 

3/5 really isn't that bad!

As for this month I have a lot to tell you & a lot of thoughts so here goes.
For the past 6 months I've been trying to figure out what to do with my little corner of the internet over here. I want to blog work, yes, but I know I have more to contribute to the world than pretty pictures. I started this blog as a way to navigate where I'm at in my life and recently that's included the hard parts of owning a business! I've also been sharing the moments I feel so lucky to get to photograph. In the process, I've fallen in love with helping people streamline their lives so they can spend more time enjoying the things they love, both big and small.

Isn't that what all of this is about? Getting to a place where we can be working less (and better!) while enjoying our lives more? 

That's what this space is going to be from now on. What does that mean?

Less session sharing (but don't worry, I'll still be sharing work from time to time!) 

More words (from me!) 

Less filler, not that I intentionally had any before. 

More talking about what we're going through and how to beat it. 

And a whole lot of honesty and grace. I'm so glad you're here. 

With that in mind, here are my goals for September: 

1) Get back in the habit of swimming regularly. 
2) Blog more & contribute to another blog. 
3) Buy some clothes that make me feel good. 
4) Find a new hydration app and STAY HYDRATED. 
5) Fill up 2 new recipe cards with ✨new✨ recipes I like. 

What about you? What are your goals for the month? Let me know :)
