Hello April Monthly Goals & Dreams

Hello April — Home of the final threads of tax season, baseball, and if you live in Maryland, SNOW.

It’s a new month and I don’t know about you, but I needed the change in calendars more this time around than most. March was filled with lots of fun and just lots.  Isn’t that how things go sometimes? Even when we plan for margin, even when we’re good at saying “no,” sometimes it all just creeps in.

So the theme of this month for me is rest.

Because that whole saying “ain’t no rest for the wicked” really is true, and I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be wicked. I just want to sleep ;)

Anyways, as I was looking over this month’s Powersheets I kept feeling this urge to fill up all the things and make all the goals.  And then I saw a peek at the powersheets of the person who created this whole concept.  Wouldn’t you know it? There are a lot of blanks and a lot of room for margin.

Funny how something so simple can be a restraint until someone unknowingly grants you freedom, huh?

So here are the goals, short and sweet.

Monthly —

  • Keep making intentional time to laugh with Morgan… we’re going to need it with our home renovations aren’t we?
  • Use my words to be encouragement to others, not to complain or bring glory to myself

Weekly —

  • Show up unexpectedly for a friend and make them feel cared for
  • Create a meal plan that works for our week and limits our time eating out!

Daily —

  • Start each work day off with scripture!
  • Drink 64oz of water a day
  • Hit 6,000 steps

What about you friends? What are you up to this month?

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!  Their session in New Jersey was filled with gorgeous light, sweet smiles, and so much love & laughter.

Connor and Alli's wedding celebration was full of lush florals, gorgeous details, and a whole lot of joy.  Their first look was one of the most sacred moments I've witness on a wedding day... filled with so much delight and love!

One of my greatest inspirations comes from exploring and the California coast fulfills that wanderlust like nothing else.  Anytime I have rolling hills and oceanside views, I'm in heaven.

She's the ultimate hypewoman. I was pretty nervous about being photographed and Lauren made everything fun and flexible. Honestly, I can't imagine the day without her and her team. They were wonderful and hearing from Lauren was always a genuine delight.
