“Bronze bells’ breeze of September showers, / Freezing fluttering fragile flowers, / Tearing the time’s tide tactile sense / May leave long love’s lighting lance in tense.” – Marieta Maglas
I love posting round-ups of the month because I get to revisit the past 30ish days and contemplate what we did! This month, pretty much everything we did was NOT on my to-do list. Which I was totally okay with! It was a wonderful month. I always love September and this was a particularly good one. But sometimes good = fun which can also mean too much fun, or in my case, just not getting a lot of my “projected” items done. Here’s my attempts on the to-do list I made at the beginning of the month:
- Celebrate my toddler’s birthday! It was a really, really fun day. We did a 2-day celebration for turning 2!
- Finish my bunny mobile and decorate the nursery. Finished both!
Get back into writing my novel. Invest some time in photography tips. Enroll in an online class.
- Journal more.
Write a guest post. Do a daily art project with my toddler. Finish watching the Gilmore Girls. Put together my photo album.
Hmmm… 3/10. Not my best record. In fact, I think it’s my worst! But like I said, we did a lot that wasn’t on the list, and they were (almost) all important things. We created a (paper) list of things that we hadn’t gotten done around the house that were long overdue, and we did every single one of them! I can’t tell you how relieving that felt. haha Plus I need to take a moment to mention that the Starbucks in our area began carrying the PSL and Salted Carmel Mochas, among other things. It’s too important of a September thing to not make note of. Besides the aforementioned coffee, this month was full of swimming, walks, and playdates (toddler mom life), and those are the unplanned things that filled up the month with a lot of fun and special memories.
Anyways, enough about me. What did you do this month? I hope that you will come back soon to see my hopes and dreams for October. And thanks so much for stopping by!
