September is definitely one of my favorite months and I can already tell that this year’s version is going to be pretty good : ) A lot of happiness and fun plans on the horizon. Linking up with Anne and Beth for Currently to share what I’m reading, trying, hoping, decorating, and to-do listing!
Reading: I just finished my 13th summer of re-reading To Kill a Mockingbird and again, it was perfect. I learn something new every time I pick that book up, and I highly suggest you do the same. Also re-reading The Happiness Project and hopefully starting The Vacationers soon. OH and if you somehow haven’t read The Art of Racing in the Rain? DO THAT NOW. Incredible.
Trying: To balance everything on my plate… with marginal success! There’s a lot going on this month and I can’t wait for all of our awesome plans, but making sure I’m prepared for everything, plus a slightly over-full workload, blogging and working out? Sliiiiightly difficult – but with help from my amazing new planner, I’m sure I’ll figure it out – more on that coming soon!
Hoping: For good weather for the next three weekends. We’ve got a “reunion” party this weekend with the families of all of our best friends, an outdoor wedding the following, and a friends trip to Avalon after that. Cross your fingers for no more “tropical storms,” please!
Decorating: We’re re-doing our hall bath at the moment, so my tasks lately have been picking out paint (we went with a gorgeous light teal gray!), choosing new towels, and incorporating a splash of color. I’m thinking about painting a few canvases myself for decor – does anyone have any abstract inspiration to share?
To-Do Listing: EVERYTHING. I sound like a broken record but I honestly wouldn’t remember anything if it weren’t for writing it down. One of my best friends gets married next week and I’ve got a lot to do before then – final alterations, hair and nail appointments, rehearsal, packing for the weekend, and plenty more. Any suggestions for “wedding day emergency kit” items?
Annnnnd on another happy note; I’m so excited to co-host Currently with Anne next month! Make sure you stop by with a post to let us know what you’re “cheers-ing, organizing, dreaming, buying, and listening.” : )
Thanks for stopping by!
