As I hoped it would be, November was full of so much love — and, lucky me, December looks to be the same way. From a quick work trip to Sea Island that the J’s get to accompany me on to another epic road trip for a Connecticut Christmas (this time overnight – hold me) to a brunch reunion planned with all of our high school friends, I am grateful. But you know what the best kind of love is? A tiny baby who came to love all of us two thousand years ago, so that we could love others. I’m making sinking that into my heart the priority this month, even as I work on the goals below!
Revisiting my goals for November:
Make reservations for June’s baptism celebration
Buy June’s baptism gift
Choose our outfits for family photos (sneak peek above!)
Finish our will
Post my guide to the Triangle (more progress has been made! :))
Begin crafting for June’s birthday party! (Started a brainstorming doc, bought some supplies on Black Friday, and designed the invitations last night!)
— Design and print our Christmas newsletter + send out our Christmas cards with love (and personal notes!)
— Send invitations for J’s first birthday party (!)
— Give away as much as we spend on Christmas gifts in our church’s Christmas Eve offering
— Love on our trash and recycling guys, my post office peeps, and June’s teachers. (Homemade toffee will likely be in the mix.)
— Finish our will (This is it, people. Really. It’s happening. It is.)
— Go out to dinner with John for our 2016 review + celebration
— Have lots and lots of fun celebrating Christmas with our families and friends in Connecticut
As a reminder, here are my 2016 guideposts. If you’ve posted your goals somewhere, I’d love to see – or just drop them in the comments!
