November Goals


I was excited to attend the Making Things Happen conference for the third time last week (a wonderful job perk!), because it could not have come at a better time. I am still getting used to blogging again after taking so much time off, but after MTH, I feel like I have a more clear and purposeful new direction than ever. I can’t wait to continue refining it, especially as the holidays approach–it has always been my very favorite time to blog!

My goals for November:

1. Write and design a new About page for Something Pretty.

2. Log 30 miles of running.

3. Make a preliminary list of Christmas gift ideas for family members and close friends. So excited about this–I love Christmas shopping!

4. Finish unpacking the last few boxes in my new apartment.

5. Hang up pictures in my bedroom.

What are you hoping to cross off your list this month? I’d love to cheer you on!

P.S. You may have noticed I didn’t include any wedding-related goals here, and while I definitely have them (oh gracious, I have them!), I’ve decided to keep them separate in my wedding planning updates. You can find my wedding to-do list for November here!
