    Fall Bucket List

    Happy September! I know Fall may still be a long way off for many of my readers, but to celebrate the beginning of a new month, I wanted to take some time to look ahead to all the lovely things that Fall brings. So today, I thought I would do something a little different, and share with you a fall bucket list, along with a free printable where you can print this list, or make your own, as you dream along with me about cooler weather and warmer lattes. So without further ado, here's my Fall Bucket List:

    Monthly Goals – September

    Last month, I shared my monthly goals for August so I wanted to review those and evaluate what worked for me and what didn't. I also want to go ahead and share my new goals for the month of September - some of them are repeats of August, but I really want to refine my goals each month to tailor them to what I need. I hope that through this goal setting exercise, I'll learn what helps me to be productive by outlining what I need to accomplish, what will help me to grow, and what is actually practical for me this month.

    Monthly Goals – August

    Over the past few years, I’ve learned a lot about myself – from going from being a college student to a military wife. And from moving to a new city to working from home (and blogging!)

    Friday Favorites

    Just a few of my current favorite things this month.   Book: I wrote earlier this week about some of my favorite biographies and mentioned the one I’m tackling this summer – Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas. All 542 pages of it.    Blog: The Motivated Millennial. Hannah’s blog is incredibly helpful and inspirational. She provides a ton of great resources for entrepreneurs, millennials, students, and military families. I’m super glad I found her blog in the beginning stages of my blogging experience.   Recipe: This Corn Dip. I loooooove this corn dip recipe. I’ve made it a few times for parties (including today!) and it’s always a big hit. I like it best…
