Monthly Goals: April 2015

Monthly Goals: April 2015 - Paper Swallow Events

You guys! I cannot believe that it's already April. March was full of so many good things and seemed to just fly by (I feel as if I say this every month...) I traveled to Chicago and Birmingham, planned a styled shoot that's taking place next week (!!), celebrated Michael's birthday, caught up with old friends, met with my brides about their events, and so many other things that I can't remember. It was a full month and a really good one! But let's jump in to the goals!

Monthly Goals: April 2015 - Paper Swallow Events
  • Travel to Chicago to be maid of honor in Jen's wedding! The wedding was lovely! You can see some of the photos in my recap here.
  • Take one full day off a week. I'm calling this one a half success. I did better about taking afternoons or a few hours here and there off to spend time with Michael, but this month was a whirlwind and I didn't take the time off that I should have. I'm moving this goal to next month!
  • Finish working on secret project #1. Almost! :)
  • Read 4 books. I read one! :-/ I think I need to hold off on the reading goals for a while. We listened to the first half of an audiobook on our trip to Chicago, but we never finished it.
  • Continue participating in the #SundayPostChallenge. This challenge was so fun! I loved the community motivation to write an intentional note each week. Many thanks to Beth of Oak + Oats for starting the community!
  • Meetup with Jenna from the blog Dearest Love to talk about a super exciting collaboration we have upcoming in April! Jenna is SO sweet! I loved meeting with her and discussing our collaboration. I can't wait to see it all come together next week!!
  • Celebrate Michael's birthday! We celebrated twice and it was wonderful! I love any excuse to celebrate this guy. :)

April is my launch into fully being involved in weddings and other wedding-related things. Michael and I are also working toward some things that I will share more about once they're a little more settled. :) Because of these things, I'm keeping my posted goals short and sweet this month. :)

  • Take one full day a week off.
  • Orchestrate the styled shoot that Jenna and I have been planning. It's going to be so lovely!
  • Enjoy my family's visit next week. They haven't been out to Tennessee since Michael and I got married almost two years ago (!!) and I'm really excited to show them our apartment and hang out for the first time since July!
  • Prep for all my May events. Make sure my wedding day emergency kit is restocked and ready to go!
  • Continue writing one letter to a friend a week. I loved getting into the habit with the #sundaypostchallenge, and I really want to continue it!

What is something that you're thankful for that happened during March? What is something you're looking forward to in April?
