hello all. we have made it to the second friday of 2014. I’d say so far so good, but there is something about the start of a new year that makes me want to achieve more. as soon as possible. I can’t help but feel overwhelmed with tasks and lazy, all at the same time.
if that makes sense. on that note, let me share four takeaways from my week.
1 // wedding planning has been consuming my thoughts lately. [J] & I have secured the major details
or so I thought. but it appears there are many more facets to this occasion than my brain had even considered. I also can’t believe how far in advance everything must be done, especially if your wedding is in the ever popular fall season. now I make up for lost time, and quick. [side note: I could not be happier to have an involved fiance. he wants to help. and I am gladly accepting it. co-planners].
2 // I have puppy fever. the rational side of me knows this is
crazy not the right time [see above]. there is way too much going on in our lives right now to throw a puppy into the mix. but the irrational larger side of me thinks puppies are always a good idea. just maybe, we can give ourselves a wedding gift [ahhem: a sweet little golden retriever].
3 // organizing. have you ever gathered every random piece of paper & folder from around your house and piled them on your dining room table, only to look at the overwhelming stack and think ..hm, I don’t have time for all that. maybe later. and then later becomes next week. that’s where I am right now. and I need to stop with the later, so today it is. Iheart Organizing has great tips + tricks for tackling the paper piles.
4 // if I make + stick to one ‘resolution’ this year, I want it to be ..every single night when I go to bed, I want to know I accomplished as much as I possibly could that day. and go to sleep with a clear, satisfied mind. hefty goals much? shoot for the stars.
I hope your year is off to a roaring start!
have an amazing weekend.
