August 3, 2014


Hello! My sweet friend Kelsey has this neat featured on her blog called "this month." It's all about projecting what you would like to be focused on and see happen in the coming month. So since its the beginning of a new month, I thought I would write my own "this month" thoughts. Without further adieu ---

Eating - slices of this delicious cinnamon chip bread from The Great Harvest Bread Co., all the while doing my best to continue to eat healthy and whole foods.
Drinking - my favorite iced coffee with a shot of espresso from a new-to-me local shop, along with lots and lots of water.
Practicing - getting my day started early.
Mastering - the art of making our bed every day.
Learning - more about patience, life and myself.
Listening - to the new Jenny Lewis album and my Fall Vibes playlist on Spotify.
Playing - around with the idea of a fall trip to NYC. We shall see!
Reading - new-to-me issues of 3,191 Miles Apart, more books and more blog posts.
Watching - more movies and less reality tv (so bad, but so good).
Walking - more and more each day. I've been a couch potato lately!
Wearing - my summer staples while incorporating as many fall pieces in that I can. 
Cooking - the basics. You gotta start somewhere!
Working - on my blog and continuing to write posts that I'm proud of.
Traveling - in and around the city. 
Wanting - cooler weather and a trip up north for some fall weather.

What are you up to this month?

  1. Fun post idea. I like doing things like this too.

    And yes! Visit NYC this fall! I'd love to meet you - been a blog reader for many years.

    1. Thank you so much! And that would be wonderful! I'll definitely let you know if I make my way to NYC! :)

  2. This post is great. I need to a make a practice of this for myself.

    1. Thank you SO much, Jackie! Miss you, girl! xo

  3. BED MAKING. Our new place is so teensy, I'm going to HAVE to get better at that.

    You are so lovely! xo

  4. Can't WAIT for fall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And this post is really cute. I'm in the bed making habit. Working on keeping the exercise and water drinking habits going. And that starting your days early thing? Good on you, lady. It seems to take half the day for me to wake up!

  5. All of that sounds lovely!

    This inspired me to get back in the swing of blogging. My sister just got married on Saturday and my birthday is at the end of this month, so lots of great things in August!

    This month for me:
