Hello June

Monthly Goals + Dreams, Happy JuneGood morning, sweet friends! I don’t know about you, but this rainy weather lately has got me feeling a bit on the dreary this morning! But what’s a better way to kick a spout of the blues than with creating a new goal list for the month and checking in on last month’s goals?!  We’re kicking off June with a bang friends, and I’m so excited about all the pretty that will be on the blog this month!

First and foremost, the month at a glance:

  • Five of my incredible couples are getting married this month and I am so excited to be a part of their days!!
  • Ben graduated from high school on June 1!! Yay, Benny!!
  • There are a ton of birthday’s on the calendar this month! Seriously, if you look at my Simplified Planner right now at all the yellow flags everywhere… it’s a bit ridiculous! Hah! But I’m so grateful that those people were born!!

Business Goals for May:

  • Photography my two weddings well! (Check! But goodness, maybe I should work on my spelling this month!)
  • Keep consistency up with blogging- I’ve got some fun content scheduled for this month! (CHECK!)
  • Catch up on editing and make sure that’s all squared away before June! (CHECK!)
  • Prepare for the craziness that is the month of June! (CHECK!)

Personal Goals for May:

  • Graduate college! (CHECK!)
  • Spend less time in general on my phone. (CHECK!)
  • Make healthy eating choices. (CHECK!)
  • Try 3 more new recipes! (I think I hit 2 out of 3!)
  • Celebrate our Anniversary! (CHECK! We went to Flemmings downtown and it was so fun!)

Business Goals for June:

  • Maintain my typical workflow within the craziness of June :)
  • Create more posts about branding for creatives
  • Work on submissions
  • Create and implement new post-wedding gifts for brides!
  • Make a large post office run
  • Update the Bridal Guide with my new branding
  • Finish designs for two other creatives

Personal Goals for June:

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.
