July Recap & August Goals

July was such a great month. J and I were in town almost every weekend and it was fabulous. We watched fireworks, attended barbecues, spent time at the pool, hosted family, tried new restaurants, and enjoyed being at home relaxing and getting things done. I am just as excited for August, though. It promises weekend trips, friends moving next door, and more of that summertime fun. Here’s a recap of my July goals and new goals for this new month:

  • Celebrate the 4th of July at a cookout and watch fireworks.
