February 2015 Goals

2 February 2015

In looking ahead at my calendar, it seems February is going to be the last quiet month before things really kick into high gear with travel, work, visitors, etc. in March, April, and May. So I want to use this month well, and also enjoy the slower pace!

January goal recap:
Finish our wedding album design and place the order
Finish the video for our niece’s first year
Finish celebrating Christmas with my family in Connecticut!
Send out invitations for a special baby shower (Invites have been selected and will be ordered this week!)
Get into a rhythm with John for our daily Bible reading

That last one – yikes. It has been way harder than I anticipated to get into a rhythm with our reading. The assignment for each day is fairly lengthy – 15-20 minutes – and we haven’t settled on a time that works for both of us. We’ve tried before bed, in the car while driving together, and at dinner, but nothing has stuck. Any suggestions??

Goals for February:
Prepare our new backyard flower garden bed (take out grass, amend soil, etc.)
Research and choose plants for the new garden bed
Touch up paint on our front door (yes, still left over from October’s paint job!)
Pull inspiration for dining area curtain options
Confirm a baby shower food and decor plan

What do you have planned for this month? I’d love to hear, or, if you’ve written a post about it, take a look!

    I am a long-term follower and your blog has motivated to finally start one of my own. My first post was my very own February Goals. Thank you for inspiring me. x

  3. February is also a bit of the calm before the (wedding and travel) storm of Spring for me! I can’t wait to see what y’all decide to plant this year; I’m eager to have a garden of my own one day soon.

  4. I’m excited to see what you plant in your garden. I have always wanted a solely herb garden separate from everything else!

  5. I can’t wait to see how your garden progresses. So exciting! I shared my goals for the coming weeks and would love it if you took a look. http://honeyhivehome.com/2015/01/29/january-february-goals/

    We’re also planning a cross-country road trip this summer, including going up the CA coast, so I’m excited to reference your posts from last year!

  6. This month seems to be pretty calm for me as well! I too, want to get in a rhythm of reading with my husband daily. Getting routine down has been hard for us too. Hoping to find a time we both can benefit from soon, maybe in the mornings!

    I posted some goals for the month as well – http://hannahelizabethblog.com/2015/02/february-goals/

    Love reading along with your posts!

  7. So thankful for this, as always, Emily. Thank you for inspiring me to do my own goals blog post– it has already been so rewarding and challenging! I love that you lead by example, and sometimes, I’m most inspired by what you DON’T cross off your list. It reminds me to choose progress over perfection, and that it is about the journey, reaching your goals step by step, not flawlessly completing every list. So good! Here is my post for February! http://www.wearetlk.com/tlkblog/2015/2/2/february-2015-goals
