All Moved In & Nowhere To Go {July 2020 Goals Recap + August Goals}

We survived the move. There were moments when I wasn’t sure we would–at least not with our sanity entirely intact–but we survived. Of course, we were terrified we were going to end up on the local news because our chicken coop door flew open while driving on the freeway (with the chickens inside of the …

Our Goal This Month: To Move and Not Go Crazy {July 2020 Goals + June Goals Recap}

Welp, June was crazy. I didn’t do so well on some of my goals, but that’s to be expected, really—getting a house ready to sell is no walk in the park, especially with three small children underfoot. Honestly, I’m sitting in my kitchen right now typing this up and relishing the fact that there are …

Preparing For Changes Ahead {June 2020 Goals + May Goals Recap}

I didn’t mean to go so long without posting. Like many others, I didn’t always know what to say, and I also found myself emotionally spent for many different reasons. This is a time of a lot of uncertainty and change in our nation, and it’s also a time of a lot of uncertainty and …

Welp, last month was a doozy. Not necessarily because anything new happened, but just because of that—BASICALLY NOTHING NEW HAPPENED!

With Spring Comes a Long To-Do List {March 2020 Goals + February Recap}

February felt long this year, even though it usually passes by so quickly for me. However, a definite turn was taken for the better about a week and a half ago, when we glimpsed the first tulip bulbs poking out through the soil and made a spontaneous trip on Friday afternoon to the garden store …

We Made It Through Another January! {January Goals Recap + February Goals}

While January has always been my least favorite month (and the one that feels eternally long), this year wasn’t too bad actually, which was surprising because we hardly left the house at all (#newbornlife). A lot of that can be chalked up to the fact that I feel better than I have in a long, …

In Which My Mom Completed Most of My Goals For Me {December Goals Recap + January Goals}

Well, December was a bit of a whirlwind. Between being on strict bed rest and then having a newborn, it’s amazing anything got done at all. And you wanna know why it did? Because I didn’t have to do almost any of it, ha ha—between my mom and my husband, a lot of my nagging …
