Update!!

Hello Friends! It has been entirely TOO long since I’ve written to you. So many wonderful things have been happening that I’ve honestly just been enjoying life and living it fully. I was sitting here trying to figure out where I wanted to begin filling you in and I decided I’d start with my proudest moment first. I’m going to start at the beginning, so grab a cup of coffee or tea and get comfy while I fill you in on my weight loss journey 🙂

The Struggle is Real

It’s been 6 weeks since the Biggest Loser challenge came to an end and I’m happy to report that I’m still working hard at my weight loss. I push myself each and every day and it feels amazing 🙂 I walk an average of 16,000 steps a day and so far my highest day was 25,629! I can’t tell you much I love my Fitbit Charge HR. Well, if you follow me on Instagram then you DO know how much I love it lol. It truly has been a huge motivator for me and the challenges I do with a group of friends via the Fitbit has made it easy to motivate and encourage each other. Some have even called me an inspiration! I never would have dreamed that would happen 🙂 I love helping others achieve their goals and get excited when they have their highest steps ever to date or get milestones badges. It make ME feel good to see them succeed.

2016 Create Your Shining Year Bundle HAS ARRIVED!!!

HELLO FRIENDS! I know I have been MIA for a little bit. . . but I promise it was for the better. I have spent the past few months feeling a little stuck and trying to figure it all out. I’ve been tackling house projects, deciding what to do next with my photography, and just spending a little more time on me. I hope you will forgive me, and I promise very soon to be back sharing all the beautiful things we’ve been doing around the house.

Today was a very exciting day. I pre-ordered Leonie Dawson’s Shining Year bundle back in July and I’ve been impatiently waiting for this day to come ever since. I am NOT a patient person so let me say. . .this was a LONG wait. I ran home at lunch, grabbed the box off my front steps and tore it open 🙂

September Recap

EM Photography

Another month has come and gone. I can’t believe it’s already October. It seems like summer was just getting started. In a way I’m sorry to see summer go, but I’m actually looking forward to having a fire in the fireplace and making more time to do things inside instead of working on the yard. Ready to see how I did on September’s goals?

July Recap and August Goals

Here we are again, at the beginning of a new month 🙂 Mike and I celebrated 6 years of marriage this past weekend and spent the day in Door County. It was a wonderful trip. I’ve been extremely busy with photo shoots which is always good news and I continue to add new clients. I also participated in my first craft show! It was a great learning. Let’s see how well I did on my July goals with how busy I’ve been.

June Review and July Goals

House

Holy WOW was June a busy month. I had my first ever photo shoot in our home and it was a newborn, which was another first. Then another newborn shoot a few days later and another photo shoot the week after. I was the featured artist at the studio where my photography is for sale, and then we hosted the annual bowling party. That all happened within two weeks time! How much do you think I actually accomplished this month?

May Review and June Goals

We’ve been in our house for over a month now and fall in love with it more and more every day. We’ve been unpacking, working in the yard, and getting our lives organized. I had my first photo shoot of the year this past month which is always exciting. We went camping over Memorial Day and the weather was amazing. All-in-all it was a great month!

April Review and May Goals

I’m a few days late on this, but better late than never 🙂 These past few weeks have been a whirlwind and we are enjoying every second of it! We’re slowly getting unpacked and have settled in to a routine so that’s been nice.

The flowers are starting to come up in the beds and it’s making the front of the house look much happier. It’s been exciting watching everything bloom. I can’t wait to get my hands in the dirt and move things around.

April Goals

I’ve wanted to do a monthly check-in for, well, since I started this blog. In these posts would be a recap of the prior month’s goals, what I accomplished, unexpected wins or challenges and my goals for the next month. I see so many other bloggers out there that do this and it’s a fantastic way to be held accountable.

We’ve had so many things happen in the last two months that I could hardly keep my head on straight . . . from going to Panama, starting to search for a new house, changes at work, and just life in general.
