May Goals





Y'all. Spring has brought new life into my... life. :) 
I've never really been Spring's biggest fan. I just love Fall too much to give any other season my attention! Haha! But this year, the pastels, the new life, the cool breezes and nice sunshine... I've been all over it. I'm thankful for the sweet new season. For so long, my life was defined by semesters and school.. but now I'm starting to truly cherish the seasons that the Lord created for us naturally. There is so much about a slight change of season that keeps me feeling joyful. And May is always the beginning of such a sweet time, it always brings celebration. Graduations, upcoming marriages, etc. I love it!

Let's check back in with last month's goals!

  1. First of all, I love your idea of Monday being "household" day and getting everything done! I also love having guests and getting our guest bedroom all set up for them. I'm excited to see pictures back from your photo project, sweet friend!

  2. Ahhh! I'm starting a t-shirt quilt this month as well. Too funny. One of my good friends just made one for another friend and has inspired me to use those old t-shirts I've been storing in my drawers. Happy happy May!

  3. I have a box of t-shirts in storage just waiting to be made into a quilt. I'm hoping to get it made when I go home in July! I'm also attempting a version of the Contentment Challenge this month and I'm so excited about it! No Target runs and no Chipotle are going to be major stops on the struggle bus, but it will be worth it! Love your goals, lady! Cant wait to see those pics ;)
