whole person health : starting out

May 6, 2014

I consider myself a fairly healthy person overall, but some areas are definitely better than others. After having my second baby and changing jobs I really felt a change within myself. The extra time in my day and the lower-stress job I’m at now have made me feel like I have a whole new life. I really want to make the most of it. There are some habits that are very important to me that I haven’t been doing since before I had kids, and that needs to change because the kids aren’t going anywhere (I hope)! Anyway, I’ve been making some adjustments in my life and have more planned to become a healthier, more whole person overall. I want to…

a self check printable worksheet

May 5, 2014

Last week I was driving and my head just started spinning with all the things in my life I needed to keep straight. There are things I need to do to keep our lives running day to day, areas that I want to focus on for my own personal growth, projects to tackle, relationships to improve. All of a sudden I had the overwhelming need to separate it all out and have a space to do a little bit of journaling about where I am in each area of life along with a place to note any actions I need to take.

one The weather in southeast Texas is heating up, and I am beginning to question whether or not I’ll be able to keep up with my running over the summer. The only time I have to run is right after work, and the sun is still out in full force. Thankfully the free gym at work is opening up in June or July and I’ll be able to get most of my fitness in there, but I really am enjoying my runs and would like to keep them up. two We are going to visit the shelter this weekend and possibly get a new dog to be a friend for ours since she seems to be completely calm as long…

May 1, 2014

We are really focusing on our budget right now, and even though in general I’m not a spender or a shopper, I do get the urge to buy fun stuff sometimes! I thought that it might help me curb those cravings to share my current wish list. :) home // some things take time print : my next home project is going to be building a gallery wall in our bedroom. I’m going to have to do this with thrift store finds and handmade art, but how I would love to one day hang a perfect print like this. craft // martha stewart weave loom kit : after I finish my quilt I think I want to tackle weaving again, and this…

project life 2014 : weeks 15 – 16

April 30, 2014

This is from April 7 – 20. I have an insert for Easter, but the above is the spread without it. The first week Liam was still dealing with an ear infection and nebulizer treatments. So glad he’s healthy again! This picture of me and Meredith is my favorite in the whole spread. It leant itself perfectly to journaling in the negative space. Then we have my favorite bluebonnet pictures, Liam’s 3-month update, a little bit about Eddie, and our zoo trip. Here is the insert I did for Easter. (Front on the left, back on the right.) I just wanted to include all of that stuff in one place. Journaled on vellum. And that’s it! 0 Like
