September Goals

It is finally fall, y'all. Ok, so not officially in that it is technically still summer seasons-wise, but my mind is totally on the fall train. There is a cooler feeling in the air in the morning and evening, and it hasn't been so hot during the day. Not to mention that COLLEGE FOOTBALL IS HERE, PEOPLE. :) All the smiles for that lovely fact.

Last month, I kept my goals simple, because I knew that we would be traveling and there wouldn't be time to really make a ton of progress in a million different areas. However, I still had goals, and sometimes, simplicity is good. I am really, really excited about this month. After a summer of traveling and doing and going, I am looking forward to enjoying, being, and resting.



Here's what I was working towards in August:

Monthly 
tidy books/papers
get brows done (it just didn't happen, peeps)
track my spending using the Every Dollar app
continue working on devotional
follow blog plan
follow prayer schedule

Weekly
workout/be active 5x a week
call a friend
call a family member
weekly gratitude with Ror

Daily
pray
read the Word
listen to/read/quote James
encourage Ror
encourage someone else

The Nitty Gritty

August was another crazy month. We traveled a lot, and it seemed as though our schedules were perpetually full. However, the month was full of good things. We were able to spend time with friends and family, which is always a huge blessing. I did get my brows done, and I felt a bit more like a human again afterwards. ;) I have finished the content for my devotional, which should be coming your way soon. This project is one I'm very excited about. Rory and I have done pretty well with our prayer schedule and are trying to be more intentional in our prayer life.

Working out often was going really well, but then...we got the puppy. Ha. He has changed things for the better, but our routine is just a little off and will be for a little bit as we get him adjusted to life in our home and as we figure out our new normals. :)

I'm still struggling with my James memorization, and I am behind. But I've decided that it's ok to go slow, and if I'm still memorizing next year, that's ok, too. I've gotten chapter one memorized and am about halfway through chapter two.

What I Was Grateful for in August

August was truly a celebratory month. My little sister turned 25, and I got to go to my ten-year high school reunion. We had a blast celebrating my sweet friend Lyndsey and her husband Will at a couple's baby shower as they enter into parenthood. We also had a blast in NJ/NYC visiting Rory's family and getting some great furniture for our home. And this last weekend, we had a short getaway with the interns from church at Lake Oconee. August was full, full, full.

What I'm feeling for September is rest in all sorts of ways. Staying home for most of September and just enjoying Athens and our friends here is top on the priority list. I'm pretty stinking pumped about it, honestly. I love to travel, but I also love our home. I'm really looking forward to hosting friends and family this month and am also glad that we will get to kick off the college football season!
