OMG. Where has the time gone? It’s August already?! I don’t know why this is more shocking than any of the other first of the months but it is. It means September is right around the corner. And for me, that means back to school. While I also had a spring semester this year, it was not what I expected my first semester of grad school to be like. I was in my first trimester, I had to travel to campus for midterms (it’s a school in Massachusetts), I lost a baby, bought a new house, put the condo up for sale, etc… you get the drill. And if you know me personally you know the WHOLE thing.
I’ve spent most of the year scrambling to keep my life together and now I can finally step back, focus on recovery, and move forward with intention. I’ve spun up the side hustle and have created some pieces and had prints made for sale (Wanna buy some whiskey paintings?). I am FINALLY getting back on my skincare routine. Self-care fell off to the wayside because I had so many other things to focus on that I forgot about myself. But mama is back at it!
Time to set some intentions for the rest of the year. Every day is a new day, right? So here are things I look forward to or focus on.
- Getting pregnant again
- Make it through a computer science class this semester
- Survive the outdoor adventures that my husband wants to go on
- Take care of myself so I can take care of my family at 100%
- Hosting Thanksgiving at our new home
What are your end of summer plans? I also can’t wait to start cooking hot soups and for the weather to cool down!
