My Life Being Renewed: Hello May!!

Hello May!!

May 5, 2016

I honestly cannot believe that it's May already. This year has really flown by quickly! Lately, I have been on a mission, working on decluttering our home & garage. My word for 2016 is Simplify.

I used to love to purchase things all of the time, but the more that I have to go through things, the less stuff that I actually want. The more that I get rid of, the less weighed down that I feel! It's amazing how little you truly need to live a good life. 

I told someone the other day that all I need in life is God, my books, coffee, travel, husband! I would much rather spend my money on travel and good food than materialistic things.

Some of my goals for May include:

>> Pray more, worry less (always on the top of my list!)
>> Finish cleaning out the garage (sell on swap + shop and have a sale/donate)
>> Go on a 1-week vacation!
>> Keep up the healthy eating + daily running (lose 5 lbs)
>> Finish painting our house, put up shutters
>> Sand & Paint interior window trim on all windows
>> Install baseboard trim + putty, sand & paint
>> Possibly purchasing a used vehicle with good gas mileage

I think that's about it. I'm keeping it sweet & simple for this month since we have two Mother's Day parties and also graduation parties this month.

What are your goals for this month?


  1. You have some lofty goals. My goals are to finalize my schooling at Functional Diagnostic Nutrition and clean out my den.

  2. I tend to do that! Hopefully, I can mark most of them off the list:) Those are some really great goals!

  3. Wow you're going to be busy this month! :) We're due with our third baby in a few weeks, and we have nothing (and it's a girl after 2 boys)! So preparing for her will be on the top of our list!

  4. Hi Hailey! Yes, I have been SO busy! It makes me even more excited for my upcoming vacation :) Wow, you have a lot to do yourself! Congrats on having a girl and 2 boys- that's perfect!!
