December Goals.

I feel like I say " I cant believe how fast the year is going by" in every monthly post but yall, we are in December. Can you believe it? We are finally in the most wonderful time of the year that is focused on the birth of our Lord and the joy that we can give to others. It feels wonderful to be back at blogging after spending time focusing on cherished time with family. Thanksgiving consisted of a home full of family and friends with food, food and more food. I was toting a full on pregnant looking belly at one point. The day before Thanksgiving, our Christmas decorations were put out and the Flowers' home is now decorated to the fullest. I feel like Christmas exploded in our home but hey, its just too perfect of a time to only have a few decorations.

November was full of some crazy events and a lot of busyness with school. I definitely didn't soak it all in as much as I had hoped but that just means December will be loved to the fullest.

November Goals:
1. Start knitting Something I didnt get to just yet so this will carry over into December! 
2. Complete another cross-stitch to post. Another favorite hobby that I wasn't able to get to
3. Finish The Best Yes I wasnt able to finish just yet but I have to admit, I love reading this book very slowly
4. Start getting things together for Operation Christmas Child box.
5. Help with my first giveaway
6. Enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving
7. Find a good static reducing hair product
8. Journal all throughout November on what I am thankful for I am horrible
9. Become serious about meal planning
10. Create at least three of my DIYs on Pinterest
11. Start getting all the Christmas decorations together
12. Purchase a Christmas tree Ours from last year worked perfectly fine!

December Goals:
1. Begin the advent calender created by Kate and Kuby
2. Continue to read the bible deeper than before 
(If you are looking for a study bible, I highly highly recommend a Life Application Study Bible. It explains verse by verse and is the most deep reading of a bible that I have ever seen. Plus it is at an awesome price right now!)
3. Book my first wedding shoot
4. Invest in deeper relationships with sweet friends
5. Make photography business plans
6. Make other project business plans coming soon!
7. Purchase my first Young Living Essential Oils kit
8. Start knitting again
9. Clean my closet and donate clothes 
10. Give to others
11. Attend a Christmas play
12. Have a date night to our local zoo lights
13. Take a trip to look at Christmas lights
14. Finish or get close to finishing The Best Yes
15. Have a wonderful Christmas

Now, I have to take a moment to stop and talk about my new blog design thanks to my precious friend Rachel from Oh, Simple Thoughts. She has created this beautiful design and she literally took everything I had in mind to create this space. Her work is flawless and she is so wonderful to work with. If you are looking for a new design, I would highly recommend her! There are still things that are coming together (a new welcome page, etc) but the comments you all have made have been so uplifting! This place finally feels like home :)

December, you are already the most wonderful time of the year, but I am so excited for a fresh month, time spent with family, new adventures with friends, the sweet time with my husband and the focus on how marvelous the Lord continues to be. I am so thankful that you are here.
