Today begins my last week of classes. No, this is not going to be another sappy post about all the things I’ve learned in grad school. You’ve stuck with me through enough of those posts. No, this time I’m writing … Continue reading
IT IS FINISHED!…well, almost. The spring semester is done, and today is my last first day of school. Praise! Someone take my picture and put it in a frame next to my first day of pre-school picture. Yes, the one with the … Continue reading
Guess what, y’all? I’ve been avoiding this blog space for a while now. Sure, I’ve been writing the occasional monthly goal post and the random 101 in 1001 updates. Let’s be real, though…I haven’t been writing–really writing. So here it … Continue reading
“Oh no! I completely forgot my April goals,” was my first thought when I sat down to write this post. Obviously not a good sign. Yet, I somehow managed to accomplish quite a few goals this month. May is perhaps … Continue reading
As part of my 101 in 1001 and our new life together, Cason and I got a puppy! We were planning on waiting until we moved in July, but when we ran into someone selling mini australian shepherds at the … Continue reading
March flew by, didn’t it? Check out the post for updates on March goals and what’s to come in April. Be on the lookout for 101 in 1001 updates as well! I’ve checked some exciting things off the list this month!
- Get out and go:
Accomplished! I went to the Waco Farmer’s Market several weekends and enjoyed the sunshine!
- Cultivate a sense of peace in my home:
- Get ahead in my academics:
Thank goodness for Spring Break and getting ahead!
- Write some letters:
oops! I carried around note-cards all month and didn’t manage to write one note. We will carry this over to April!
- Spring cleaning:
We got a lot done in this area this month! Still de-cluttering and preparing for our move in July!
- Get out and go:
This goal went so well that I’m keeping it around. April will be a great month for spending more time outside and enjoying life there. Adding to this, I want to make time for reading the Bible outside. God’s word in God’s creation.
- Write some letters:
Carrying over this goal from last month. School should be more calm in April, so this will be a great month for writing snail mail to friends.
- Health kick:
I started making green tea in March, and I’m not sure why, but it makes me want to have a healthier month in April. Let’s start with cutting back on soda!
- Preparing to move:
It’ll be good to continue sorting through things and donating items that we don’t need to take with us to South Carolina. Hey, maybe I can even pack a box or two!
- Take more photos:
I used to take photos all the time, and I loved it. This month, I’d like to get the real camera out (less iPhone photos!) and take more pictures–nature, puppies, family, anything!
Well, we made it through February, y’all! What a tough month it was. And how relieved I am to see that March is already bringing positive changes. That being said, there’s always room for improvement. So, now a quick recap … Continue reading
Why is this crazy girl making goals for a month that’s almost over? I know you’re all wondering, and here is the reason. It has obviously been a pretty tough month, and I’m guessing that’s not just true for myself. … Continue reading
I have tried to write a positive post a thousand times. I want to give you something, but I cannot keep spitting out negativity. Life is busy and stressful and crazy, and at the end of the day I have to remind myself that it is ultimately good. God has a purpose for this season and the place that he has put us for this time. At the heart of it all, I believe that. Now is the time for perseverance. I’ll leave you with these pictures since I have trouble with words now:
Wonderful things happened in 2014: I finished my first semester of graduate school, and I learned so many new things. I went to Washington, D.C. and Costa Rica for the first time, which satisfied my wanderlust for the time being. I … Continue reading
