May Monthly Goals

I get so excited when May rolls around...because it means summer is right around the corner!! Whoop! This month is going to be a busy one, and I will have to work hard at being present because I have a tendency to look too far ahead and June is going to be a big month-my youngest son graduates!! But bringing it back to May-I am so excited to share what is going on this month. Please join me in writing your goals by commenting on this post-let's do this together!

April Goals Recap:

I am happy to report that I did pretty gosh darn good on the exercise front! My shoulder has been giving me fits-so I didn't climb as much as I wanted to, but am hoping that by giving it the opportunity to heal I will be able to climb more later. Running is so not my thing...even though I miss it when I am not running, but both my husband Dennis and I have been running on the weekends and adding yoga in at least once. I am doing yoga on my own as well-I love it!! 

I finished the Vegas photos! Here is a sampling from that trip. It was so fun being with family, exploring and having fun. And while I hate that I procrastinate sometimes, it is also really fun to edit later on and have such a wonderful reminder of all of the fun memories.

The April weather was amazingly wet! Skateboarding takes dry weather and then we were busy, so my Kole/Mom date will have to wait until May. Stay tuned for those photos!

On the business side of things, I did it! I blogged three times in April! Make sure you check out When Is The Best Time To Have Your Senior Photos Taken In Oregon and Pacific City Engagement Themed Session. I bit off a bit more than I could chew with my love story brochure-so am allowing the extra time to ensure it is exactly how I want it before saying it is done. I did, however, finish my family brochure! That felt great! And we had some amazing sessions (despite the rain) this month!

As for May, let's get to it! 


Personal Goals:

  • Continue making exercise a priority by doing cardio (running, cycling, hiking) at least 2 times per week and doing yoga or climbing at least 2 times per week.
  • Start a daily meditation routine. Do any of you do this already? Tell me more!! 
  • Pick a fun and active Mother's Day activity for the whole family. I'm thinking hiking, but do love to rock climb!
  • Visit Alvord Desert! I am so stinking excited about this! It might be because I feel like our whole family excursions are slowly coming to an end, so I want to hold on to every last minute with my boys. They are so good to me-they even "agreed" to do model for a photo shoot. Can't wait to tell you all about our adventures!

Business Goals:

  • Blog at least three times this month (this equals one!!). 
  • Attend my very first photography workshop hosted by two amazing photographers Casi Yost Photography and Harper Grace Photography! I am so excited to be headed over the mountain to Bend to attend the Beyond workshop! A fellow Salem photographer (Danielle Peterson Photography) and I are driving over together so that we can get in a hike before meeting up with some other amazing photographers for a weekend of learning, shooting and laughing. Bet you can't tell how excited I am?! Stay tuned for some epic photos!!
  • Continue working on my SEO and Pinterest account. To be honest, this will probably always be a goal. 
  • Make some magic with the amazing sessions this month! 

Not that I am trying to jump ahead...but next month is my birthday month and my baby graduates!! Make sure you check back in...I tend to give presents for my birthday! Cheers!
