February Personal Recap and March Goals

Things that happened in February

  • We took the boys on a trip to Great Wolf Lodge with a non-profit organization that I work for! IN-CREDIBLE!

  • My sister came for a little weekend visit which we SO enjoyed

  • Lots of babies were in the studio and many milestone sessions were had

  • Handmade valentines with the kiddos

  • Lots of sickness for Emma causing mama frustration trying to find the culprit

  • Little tastes of warmer weather and time outside together

  • Celebrated the 10 year anniversary of Nate proposing

  • Had the chance to meet our first great-niece and have dinner with Nate’s sister and our nephew

February Goals that happened and didn’t happen:

  • Actually use my camera to take photos of the kids- I have gotten in a rut of not documenting our life together with my professional camera. I always love the challenge and creative outlet to use my camera photo-journalistically for our own family, but I've gotten out of the habit of doing it. (I’d say I did OK. Really only brought it out like 4 times though, so I definitely need to continue to work on this)

  • Continue the contentment challenge

  • Practice social media free weekends and evenings (oof, honestly forgot I made this a goal…)

  • Cook and eat 3 meals a day (most days yes, but all days no)

  • Sort and organize the kids' clothes and purge things that they have outgrown

  • Finally finish reading 'Habits of the Household' (sadly only got through one more chapter)

  • Continue to blog 3x/week and create a new youtube video at least 2x/month

Goals for March (some of these are actually goals for 2023 as a whole):

  • Continue to try to actually use my camera to take photos of the kids

  • Finish up the contentment challenge

  • Practice social media free weekends and evenings

  • Cook and eat 3 meals a day

  • Sort and organize the studio wardrobe, refresh the paint and update a few things in the office

  • Finally finish reading 'Habits of the Household'

  • Continue to blog 3x/week and create a new youtube video at least 2x/month

  • Prep kids’ Easter baskets

Things I'm looking forward to this month

  • Our church is hosting a women’s conference on March 24th and 25th! If you’d like to join us, you can check out more info here.

  • My in-laws will be coming into town for a few days. This will be their first time meeting the girls and our first time seeing them since 2019.

  • Prepping our garden for this spring!

  • Hopefully some warmer days and enjoying some sunshine outside- We thrive off of outdoor play time and the winter blues have me dreaming of summertime.

  • Starting spring cleaning around the house. Organizing, purging, and piling things for a potential yard sale- maybe I can convince Nate that this is the year for that!
