september small goals

The days are short but the months are long…is not really a thing that people say, but for me it definitely applied to August! After kind of a busy spring and summer with lots of weddings, lake trips, etc., August really slowed down for us and I was able to get all of the things done. Which is great, because now it’s football season which means every weekend is taken over by tailgates, losing fantasy football games, and searching for the perfect low-carb baked potato soup recipe.

I mentioned in this post that we’ve decided to stay put at the Rosedale apartment for the next year. After Matt and I made the decision, we were sitting around talking about the pros of staying, and he said, “It’ll be so nice for you to not have any projects, since everything’s done!” I paused, looked at him, and laaaaughed and laughed and laughed. He now understands that the projects may never end. (The limit does not exist!) In the spirit of never-ending projects, I thought I’d try out a new series on the blog-monthly small goals. I saw this…
