It's May! I am linking up with Hayley again to write out my monthly goals. I love how it gives me a little focus around what I'd like to accomplish. Nothing earth-shattering here...just a fun way to keep a record of what I am aiming for, with loads of grace along the way.
Here's what I'm hoping to accomplish in May:
FAMILY // Unplug: I have been dreaming about our upcoming family vacation alllllll winter long. We are heading south for ten days of warm, sunny, memory-making fun. My goal is to truly unplug and detach the my phone from my hand. I've started to get that yucky feeling after I've spent too much time consuming social media. So I'm anxious for a change of scenery and a good excuse to unplug and look up.
HEALTH // Marathon Relay: Despite never running more than 3 miles at one time, I signed up to run in a four-person marathon relay team. This means each of us will run 6.5 miles to complete the whole marathon. I realize this distance is a breeze for many of you, but it's a biiiig stretch for me. I am super nervous but excited to be running with the Hubs and our best friends. You would think that I have been training for this right? Well you would be wrong. #oops I am hoping the adrenaline will get me through the last couple miles. I do love trying new things though so this is a biggie for me this month!
SIMPLIFY // Summer Capsule Wardrobe: I mentioned last month that I have jumped on board with the whole Capsule Wardrobe idea. This means I am paring my wardrobe way down and only keeping the items that I truly love and look forward to wearing. I have donated about half the clothes in my closet and have zero regrets! I am loving it so much that I want to keep going and design a small, well thought out summer wardrobe as well. Summer is the season that I tend to accumulate the most pieces of clothing. So my goal will be to think simple and minimal. Will post a few outfit ideas soon.
ORGANIZE // Digital photo management: I am pretty good about staying on top of my digital photo management. This month I need to unload all the photos on my phone (which I always forget to do), and dump them into iPhoto. I also need to go through the last four months of my DSLR photos and purge my folders of any duplicates, blurry ones, or ones just not worth keeping. This frees up space on my computer and also means it will be easier to go back and find favorite photos when I need to. I recently wrote a detailed post on how I keep my digital photos organized if you are interested!
Looking forward to making May a good one. Linking up with Hayley!
