Normally at the beginning a new year I like to set goals. You know – Loose weight. Dry January. Spending freeze. Save money.

Honestly – FUCK that. It’s 2021. I’m going to stick with a more playful list of wishes and dreams. Things I’m truly looking forward to.

And manifest the shit out of it.

Just seems like maybe this approach could be a little more effective, ya know what I mean? So I’m giving it a try! What on your list?

We hardly made a dent in our Summer To-Do’s. And since Summer isn’t going anywhere just yet, I think we might as well take advantage of this warm weather + sunshine while it lasts.

{summer to-do’s}

It’s official – SUMMER 2019 is here and we couldn’t be happier!! Friday + the 1st day of Summer falling on the same day. Not a coincidence! HA! If you’ve been following for a while, then you know we’re BIG on seasonal bucket lists. It’s helps us make the most of the next few months and do all the fun things we’ve been wanting to do.

Keeping a running list is a great way to remember all seasonal things you enjoy doing or look forward to do.  When we have a free weekend, I like to refer to our To-Do’s and check items off as we go.

Here’s to an amazing Summer. Cheers!

Make sure to comment below on fun things you’ve go on your to-do list.

Happy October, friends!  Am I the ONLY freak that was uber excited that October 1st fell on a Monday?  Monday’s are already for fresh starts, but when the 1st + a Monday collide….happy AF!

A happy little buzz (not the wine kind of buzz) comes along with the month of October.  How can you not crack a smile when you walk past piles of pumpkins at the grocery store.  The temps start taking a slight dip.  Dream of hearty recipes.  Fluffy blankets.  Cozy sweaters.  Red wine…oh yeah.  Festive fall candles.  Changing of colors.  We saw a lot of this in Oregon last week, which I’ve never experienced before here in California.  Slowing down.  And starting fresh.

Hence the 1st falling on a Monday.  And it being the last 90 days of the year.  It’s the perfect time to freshen up.  Change your routine.  I’m jumping on the #last90days challenge.  Basically living the last 90 days how you lived the first 90 days of the year. We’ll touch more on that next week though.

I need to add #twinning with my tween to the list!  Ha!

Our LA sweatshirts have been on maj repeat.  We’ve declared them to be our weekend wear.  And she still thinks it’s cool to match me!  Insert happy dance.

Wanna twin with us?  lol!  Our sweatshirts are 40% off with code: BIGSALE  And the Levi’s are marked down today too!

Hey Girl,

Consider today the OFFICIAL kick off to summer.  Happy Summer Solstice!

Summer’s here!  Which means it’s time to take a deep breath and savor everything the season has to offer.  In your happy place.  Whether that means sitting by the ocean.  Camping under the stars.  Sipping rosé in your own backyard.  Dinning al fresco.  Gardening!

You know I love a good seasonal to-do list by now.  I couldn’t be more excited to write down ALL THE THINGS we’re planning to try out this summer.

Because in the end, memories aren’t made by sitting around waiting for them to happen, but from when you get out and live.

 

2018 Summer To-Do’s

And just like that, it’s SPRING!  To say I am excited for the season change is an understatement.  I’m sure you’re sick of hearing me talk about it.  Spring always seems to be the season we wait the longest for.  Rain and all, I’ve got my eye on the long warm sunny days to come!

The shift from Winter to Spring always leaves me feeling super inspired too.  Always craving to create + explore after the Winter blues (which is a legit real thing).  I think we all, mentally NEED Spring..lol.  Everything seems to suddenly come to life.  Colorful life.

Last night I threw together a Spring mood/inspiration board (pictured above) with all the images that have been catching my eye lately.  Add the wooden flower from our Park Winters Garden Tour.  The pretty pom-pom tassel I originally got for Bay’s Easter basket.  And lastly, wrapped twine around a bunch of ranunculus to dry.

Another way Spring inspires me is by compiling our Spring list of the fun things we plan on creating + making + exploring + doing + wearing ♥

Keeping a running list is a great way to remember all seasonal things you enjoy doing or look forward to do.  When we have a free weekend, I like to refer to our To-Do’s and check items off as we go.

{2018 intentions}

While 2017 was a good year, I just know that 2018 is going to be even better!!  So excited for a fresh new start.  And….THIRTY SIX.  Holy shit!  How did that happen?  Ha.

It’s that time were we all set resolutions.  Some love em’ and some hate em’.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of those “new year, new me” bullshit artists.  I’m still the same ol’ chardonnay guzzling, F bomb dropping, crazy bitch that I was December 31st.  But why not set some realistic achievable goals?  Intentions.  New habits.  Shit you want to do that would make you feel better.  Make you happier.  I guarantee if you consistently add a few “good things” to your routine, by the time 2019 rolls around you’ll be happier + healthier + stronger + calmer and enjoying the hell out of life.

I truly believe that you have to write that shit down.  Put pen to the paper.  Writing them down gives them power.  Too much?  I swear by it.

And without further ado……

Here’s what I’ve got planned to improve my overall health + happiness for 2018!

Punctuality //

If you know me, then you know I’m ALWAYS late.  Like 20 minutes late.  At least…FML!  I hate it.  Such a terrible way to start the day or plans.  Being late leaves me frazzled and feeling like a total ass.  My co-workers are going to fall out of their seats if I can keep this up!

Update: We’re on week 3 of January and I’m happy to report I haven’t been late yet!!!

And then it was Winter!  Winter Solstice, to be exact.  First day of Winter.  Or how I like to identify it….the shortest day of the year.  Some say that once Winter Solstice arrives, the temperatures drop.   Today, I think I will agree with that.  It’s so, so cold.  You know that with every season, I like to make a list.  I’m ready to wrap up the year and set some fun Winter goals.  The Holiday buzz + all the lights + celebrating with loved ones + festive parties + comfort food galore….It really is the most wonderful time of the year.  As we move through the Holidays + New Year, I like to make fun plans + intentions for the rest of the season.

 

 

Here’s how we plan to make the best of Winter….
