August Goals

July has been so crazy. M told me the other day that I have been in 7 states in the last 3 weeks, and next weekend we will be in another country. It has been a whirlwind, and my goals have definitely suffered because of it! 


So, let's recap my failure of July's goals. 
 
1. Read 2 books.
Ouch. I did finish "Packing Light" and I have started on "Don't Waste Your Life."
 
2. Have a bonfire party in the backyard (it's gonna be a hot one so we will see how this goes).
We didn't exactly have a "party" but we did have some friends of ours come over for dinner and a bonfire followed! Leaving this on my list though.
 
3. Since we already wrote vows, I'm in the process of getting them framed!
My friend Nina has finished our vows and they are in the mail! I will frame them after our honeymoon! I can't wait to share them with you all!
 
4. Visit Brie and Beau in Louisville (we are going for the Fourth!). 
WE KILLED THIS GOAL! We had such a blast. You can read more about our trip here
 
5. Learn how to tie a tie. 
Fail. One day, one day.
 
The following are my goals for August. They might be a little overly ambitious, but we shall see!
 
1. Read 2 books.
2. Start my chronological bible study and stick with it! Would you join me?
3. Go zip-lining. 
4. Go to Chicago.
5. Go to another country.
6. Be social media free for an entire week (HELLO HONEYMOON!).

  1. I need to make something with our vows! They're so special to us. Drew's vows kicked my vows butt.

  10. I started a chronological Bible study on January 1st and it has been so great! I'd never actually read the Bible front to back before. Hope you are able to make it to Chicago!
