The beginning of September is always an exciting time for me. I love September because it brings the beginning of fall, which is my favorite holiday. My birthday also falls in September, which means it’s always a great month for me. Plus, since I always loved school (and therefore back to school season), I was always as excited as ever during this month! As usual, I’m back at the beginning of this month to share my goals for September!
Before I get into my goals for September, I wanted to share an exciting milestone. Yesterday was mine and Dave’s five-year dating anniversary. Five years ago yesterday, after weeks of talking on the phone and texting from different towns, I moved into my first apartment. Dave had been patiently waiting for me to move so he could ask me out, and he volunteered to help my mom and I move me into my apartment before we had even gone on our first date. He came back later that evening and we had pizza and beer, our first unofficial date. Since then, September 1 is the date we have celebrated as our dating anniversary.
Goals for September
Blog and Biz | Share a House Tour
One of my biggest goals for August was to share a house-related post, and I obviously failed. But I feel confident that I’ll be able to make it happen this month. Now that we’ve gotten a start on painting and are finally unpacked and fully organized, I really want to get a house tour up this month! I can’t wait to show you all the gem we found and what we’ve done with it so far!
Blog and Biz | Announce a Special Project
Sorry to be a tease, but I won’t be announcing my special project today. However, I promise there is a very exciting announcement coming in just a couple of weeks! It’s something that is near and dear to my heart and that I’ve been working tirelessly on, so I can’t wait to share it with you!
Blog and Biz | Instagram
If you’ve been following these monthly goals posts for awhile, you know I have a love-hate relationship with Instagram. It’s always the social media platform I’ve struggled the most with. I rarely post (I was down to like twice per month there for awhile!), partially because I haven’t been great at photography (which I’m working on) and I just never know what to post! I really want to work on Instagram and be able to use it to drive genuine traffic to my blog and Etsy shop.
P.S. You can follow me on Instagram here!
Personal | Complete One House Project
One of my goals for August was to complete one house project, and we did! I did a full re-organization of our pantry so it finally holds everything and looks nice, and Dave got my office painted (meaning no more Winnie the Pooh office!) This month I would also like to get at least one project down!
Personal | Bring Home a New Family Member
Dave and I have been talking for quite awhile about bringing home a new pet to join the family. We decided against a second dog and have been thinking about getting a cat. We’re just waiting for the final call to see if we got the kitten we applied for, and then he gets to come home with us!
That’s all for September, friends. It’s been a crazy summer for us and I’m hoping September and fall bring a bit of calm with them.
