2015...Part Two!

And just like that it's July...

6 months ago when AJ and I decided on a date and venue for our wedding; July seemed forever away. It seemed as if summer would never get here and that I had all the time in the world to get wedding type things squared away...and then I blinked...and now it's here!

Part of me feels like I should be a little more stressed about all the things going on this month...but seriously, how can I be stressed when all the craziness that is happening is good stuff? 

I get to marry my favorite person, spend a week in Mexico, and then come home and move into our first home...Sounds like I have it made doesn't it? :) 

Now don't get me wrong...there are things on my to do list for this month that seem pretty daunting...i.e. packing and moving; but I suppose knowing that this will be our last move for awhile and the fact that we are moving into our first home as husband and wife makes it a little more bearable :) 

Now that it's July 1st and we are halfway through 2015 I thought it would be good to revisit my goals and resolutions and let you all know that I have failed miserably...

I haven't written in my journal in at least a month...I just can't seem to make myself do it. I think about it often and I tell myself daily that I can just start from today and it will be fine...but do I? Nope...

Today is the day I do is my fresh start, my chance to get back into the habit of writing every day. I have good intentions...we will see if they last ;) I am going to try and keep the journal on my nightstand (instead of in the extra bedroom) so that it will remind me each night to write something...we shall see if that helps! 

I have managed to keep up with reading 2 books each month...barely. In May I finished my 2nd book on June 2nd (oops) and this month I finished my first book June 27th and the 2nd book on June about procrastination! I just haven't had much time (or energy) to read at night. I am hoping now that summer vacation has officially begun (summer school is over FOREVA!! -Or at least until next summer) I will have more time to read...and if not I am sure to get lots of reading done on our flight to Mexico and hopefully on the beach! 

Marathon training has also been added to my summer craziness and I am only in week 2 right now...and so far so good...but my mileage is still pretty low....I am hoping that I can stick to my training plan as much as possible in the next few weeks...13 miles on our wedding day? No problem ;) 

July's Intentions

Each month I set intentions for goals if you will and I think for only intention (besides journaling and reading) will be getting through this wild and crazy time without any emotional break-downs. I really want to make sure I work to keep things in perspective and remember that while things are going to get hectic, I am going to get stressed, and there will be moments where I want to lose it...I am so incredibly lucky to be living this crazy, hectic life right now! I want to enjoy the next few weeks and avoid sweating the small stuff...because in the end everything will all work out :)  


  1. I've been on vacation, so I'm behind on all of your updates - congratulations on the new house!!! It looks awesome - and with just a tiny bit of TLC (i.e., painting), it's going to look fabulous!!! AJ will need to carry you over the threshold when you get back from your honeymoon! :)

    Don't you just love this midwest weather for running? If it's not super hot and humid in the morning, it's storming…sigh. Good luck with Marathon training - I'm "just" training for 5 half-marathons in the fall. Sigh again. :)

  2. Love this post, Heather, and your intention for the month!! It's been awhile (well, 7 years!) since I got married but I can still remember the craziness and all of the events surrounding that; we actually moved into our home the month before our wedding (just the way things worked out when we started looking), and it was kind of a crazy time but we managed to get it all done and survive - ha! I know you and AJ will, too, and I'm so glad that summer school is DONE!!! Woo hoo!
