May Goals

Couldn't resist

Y'all, can I just say how happy I am that it is May? I love this month. It's the birthday month for me, my husband, and my dad, plus it is the official beginning of summer season with Memorial Day closing us out at the end of the month. I. love. May. And can we also talk about all the lovely flowers that the April showers brought to us? May is a good, good month, friends.

Here's what I was working on last month:

Monthly

add at least one member to Young Living
complete Instagram 101 course
Blog Life course (still truckin' through it!)
May blog plans
May meal planing
Charleston trip itinerary
host a make and take
begin our garden!
clean out carpet room closet

Weekly

work out more days than not ;)
call a family member
write someone a note
listen to James
make IG plans
pray through prayer journal 

Daily 

pray
read the Word
encourage Ror
encourage someone else
drink plenty of water



The Nitty Gritty

I feel like I say this every month, but last month flew by! What is that saying? The days are long, but the years are short. I'm feeling that for sure, friends. So after I made my goals last month, my priorities greatly shifted. I decided to take a step back from the blog in order to focus more on my upcoming book. I've made a lot of progress on that, and while we did do things like begin our garden and clean out the carpet room closet, a lot of other things on my monthly goals went unchecked. We were able to rehome our sweet Tybee and we are hoping that he enjoys his new family! Working out has been an exercise in grace (see what I did there?) but I am trying to take Bailey on more walks since she is our only dog now, and that has been nice.  But a whole lot of those things you see on the list just went unchecked. And I'm actually quite ok with that!





What I Was Grateful for in April

In April we celebrated our engage-versary, which was super sweet. :) Easter weekend was a lot of fun, because we were able to have some friends, family, and kiddos from Downtown Academy to our house for a little cookout. We had a really relaxing weekend at the intern retreat, and it was fun to get out on the water at the lake. My friend Hannah and I were able to run a race together, which was so fun! I hadn't run a race in a few months, and I wanted something to work toward. While I didn't train as much as I should have, race day was a lot of fun, and I've decided that the 10k distance is just right for me at this stage in my life. :) I also did a lot of research and reading about anti-inflammatory diets and got a new cookbook by Tia Mowry that I've been using to make some pretty delicious meals. I've been convicted about what exactly I put into my body and have decided to go gluten/dairy/soy/sugar free in order to be and feel the best I can! It's been a challenge so far, but I don't want to quit. I'm doing this thing! Last but not least, on the very last day of April, I got to see one of my oldest and dearest friends marry her Prince Charming, which was so very fun.
