I’ve always been a pretty goal-oriented person. Maybe it’s because I like to make lists and thrive on accomplishing things. When Victoria and Meg over at The B Bar posted about this month’s linkup theme of goals for the fall, I immediately knew I wanted to participate. After realizing I soon had a list a mile long, I decided to pare it back to a few more manageable goals. Because my real goal is to enjoy each day with the least amount of stress while bonding with my little luv.
A MONTH OF MEATLESS MEALS
My partner and I watched Fed Up a few months ago. Afterwards we were brainstorming ways to change our food habits and came up with the idea of forgoing meat for a month. (FedUp doesn’t really have anything to do with meat. It’s more about the amount of sugar in products.) At first we both thought “oh no big deal, we’ll just give up meat.” We picked October as our month because who wants tofurky for Thanksgiving?! As it gets closer, we’ve come to realize how often we eat it, especially chicken. If you have any good meat-free recipes, send them my way!
Ever since having my first baby in April (you can read more about his birth story here), I’ve found it hard to get back into a regular posting routine. I’d vow to start again, only to find my days occupied by feedings, play time and naps (for both of us). I’ve reset my expectations to creating and posting content three days a week focusing on style and my life as a new mama. I really do enjoy it and love being a part of the blogging community!
NIGHTLY FAMILY WALK
Recently we’ve gotten into the habit of going for a walk together each night. Lawson can get fussy at the end of the day, but immediately calms down once his stroller gets out of the door. Jim and I enjoy the time together. We talk about our days and all sorts of other random topics. I look forward to it all afternoon. It’s a great way to reconnect and spend time with Lawson exploring the neighborhood.
