Monthly Reflections | June

What I'm currently up to in life and on the blog. #currently #takingstock #monthlyreflections

Hey friends. I've been MIA for a little while but wanted to come back and wrap up the month in this post since I haven't been sharing anything here on the blog or on social media. First, I wanted to thank everyone who has emailed and messaged me with encouragement. It's been a tough month and I'm really grateful to have so many amazing friends who have been keeping tabs on me. You guys are the best. I'm hoping to be back in July with a normal posting schedule, but for now, I'm taking things one day at a time and we'll see how it goes. Hope you have had a great June!

If You and I Had Coffee | vol 13

 A conversation over coffee #coffeedates
If you and I had coffee...

We'd make up a couple of glasses of strong iced cafe and take them out to sit next to the pool. It's been hot outside lately and the breeze is perfect under the big canopy umbrella. We could sit on the edge of the deck and dangle our feet in the water for a bit or jump right in and grab a float to recline on. Whatever we choose, catching some Vitamin D rays will be a great way to spend the day.

Good morning. Does anyone else agree that the weekend was not long enough? Well, sadly, Monday is here, so pour yourself an extra cup (or two) and lean in. Let's work on conquering this week together, shall we?

Sharing my favorite reads from the week.  #linkstolove #fridayfavorites

Hi, friends. Have you ever had one of those days when you've felt like you just couldn't do anything right for anyone? Well, it's been one of those weeks around here. I'm exhausted and feeling beaten up. Here's hoping the weekend is a little easier on me. I'm going to be laying low for the next few days but hope to do some soul searching and a whole lot of writing in that time. Hope you have a great weekend loves!

101 in 1001 - A Day Zero Project | The Final Six Months

Checking in for the last six month countdown in my Day Zero Project! #101in1001 #dayzeroproject

Eight hundred and twenty days ago, I created a list of a hundred and one things I wanted to complete in the next one thousand and one days. It's called the Day Zero Project. Today marks the six-month countdown in my project and I wanted to check in with a post to share what I've completed and what I still need to do, which is a lot. Yikes!

What I Read | May + FREE Summer Reading List Printable

A look back at what I read last month. #ASGbookshelf #whatIread

It's one of my favorite times of the month when I get to look back at all the books I read over the last few weeks. I had so many on my list in May and got most of them checked off. There were a lot of really good books and a lot of really bad ones. Really bad. Don't forget to read through to the end of the post to learn how to get a copy of my FREE summer reading list printable!

Simple Gratitude | 80

Today I'm sharing my #gratefulheart on the blog #gratitude #feelingthankful

"Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy." - Fred De Witt Van Amburgh

Hiya, friends. I hope you all had a relaxing weekend because it is sure to be a busy week. I enjoyed mine and spent a lot of time thinking about the next few weeks and what they hold. The pool is finally up but the water is still a bit cold. It's been dropping down into the 50s overnight, so I don't think I'll be swimming for a few weeks yet. Until then, I'm crossing my fingers for some hot days to heat that water up. Hope you all have a great week!

What I Learned | Spring 2017

Sharing lessons learned in spring 2017 with Emily Freeman. What I Learned | Spring 2017 - A Simpler Grace

The lovely Emily Freeman (author and blogger) hosts a fun writing exercise and link up so we can all share the things we've learned in that season. I joined in last season and loved the experience and I'm excited to participate again this week.

Here's what I learned this spring.

Sharing my favorite reads from the week.  #linkstolove #fridayfavorites

Doesn't it feel like we were just here talking about my favorite reads from last week? I think think the next few days will be a little slower because I don't have anything planned for this weekend other than lots of reading. I might sneak in a little writing time too, but I'm not going anywhere and not having anyone over so for the first time in a long time, my weekend is clear! What are you plans for the weekend?

Hello June | Goals

A monthly series tracking the goals I've set both in my personal and blogging life.

Hey, friend! Can you believe we are in June already? The year is moving so fast and my brother is already counting down the days until Christmas. That's a little overboard, in my opinion. Now that June is here, I'm setting some new goals and looking back at how last month panned out. Do you set goals every month?
