I promise, I haven’t lost my mind. While January is the official start of the new year, it’s the month of September that signals a new year for me. Even though I haven’t been a student for years, I still feel like things are given a fresh start every September.
September gives you another shot at a clean slate. Office supplies are more affordable and new planners are being debuted. September is a great time to reflect on your yearly goals, household finances, and your health.
This morning, I dropped The Boy off for his first day of second grade. He’s excited, I promise!
And in a few days, I’ll celebrate my birthday. (Shout out to all my fellow Virgos! We’re going to rock this year even more than last year!)
A few goals that I set for this calendar year were to complete a half-marathon (I’ve completed two, one more to go and I’ll receive a snazzy jacket!)
get out and explore the beauty of Cape Cod,
and enjoy some quality cocktails. What? We can’t be good all the time!
As I think about my goals for the remainder of this calendar year, and the next twelve months, one thing I want to tackle is my closet. I know that I need to do another major purge. I’m hanging on to clothing that I know I will never wear again. My plan is to create an awesome wardrobe that looks great on me, and is both affordable and classy.
We have some big changes coming up in the next few months as The Texan prepares for a major career change. Two things I am hyper focued on now are streamlining our budget and reducing our expenses. Any resources or suggestions are welcomed!
A new year. A few new goals.
