July 2017 goals

3 July 2017

Happy almost-Fourth, friends! Popping in quickly to share my goals for July. There’s a lot to look forward to this month – birthdays, fun travel, important national holidays – but to be honest it’s all a bit overshadowed by some really sad health news we recently got about one of our beloved cats, news that’s been taking up a lot of my time and head and heart space. I don’t want to bring the mood down too much on this festive extra-long weekend, but your prayers for our sweet Jack would be so appreciated. Sending love to each of you!

What I read in June:
The Magnolia Story (I listened to the audio book and LOVED it! My expectations were kind of low, I guess since it would have been so easy for them to put out something not so great and still sell zillions of copies, but it was fantastic!)
The Night Circus (Probably the best fiction story I’ve read this year! Highly recommended!)
— Books I’m reading throughout the year: The Power of a Praying Wife and The Lifegiving Home

Revisiting my goals for June:
Try Heather’s 15-minute Mom + Baby workout at least four times (I did it twice…)
Go camping with the Rays!
Finish a complete organization sweep and purge of our loft
Film June in June, Volume Two
Clear out my backlog of gifts and cards to send (I sent Letterfolk boards to two friends who had graduated, two Farmhouse Pottery mugs to a dear friend who eloped (!), and a baby carrier to my pregnant cousin!)

July goals:
— Edit June in June
— Take an evening neighborhood walk any night we’re home and the weather is good
— Book accommodations for John’s secret trip
— Follow the daily She Reads Truth reading plan (I’ve been doing this for a few days already and it’s been great!)
— Plan well (including prepping food) for my Dad’s visit
— Enjoy our Michigan vacation with our family!
— Cow Appreciation Day!!

Keeping it simple again so that we can focus on our summer fun list! As a reminder, here are my 2017 guideposts. If you’ve posted your goals somewhere, I’d love to see – or just drop them in the comments!

  1. Oh, I’m so sorry to hear about Jack :( Prayers for y’all! <3

  2. Okay, if you like Magnolia Story, I’m sold. Any book you like I feel like I would like too. :) I’m going to put my name on the hold list for the library. (I’ll probably get a chance to check it out by 2037. ;))

    Love reading your goals, as always! Mine are over here :) https://dianakerr.com/july-goals-2017/
