December, I'll do my best.

Now that both Halloween and Thanksgiving are behind us, we are in full-fledged Christmas mode. I honestly can't believe its December already! This year has flown by. With a new month comes a new set of goals and a clean slate. Thank goodness for that because I flopped HARD in November on my fitness related goals. I'm trying not to be too hard on myself, because we all know that "life happens", but with my in-home morning workout both yesterday and today, I'm feeling pretty motivated to continue moving forward with this healthier lifestyle!

In the month of December I want to simply try my best. That might sound really generic to you, and like a cop out, but I know what it means to me.

It means I'm going to do my best job to be the best wife (best friend, best sister, etc.) that I can be. To do a better job of encouraging and supporting my loved ones in every situation they find themselves in. To be the friend that sends random notes of encouragement and love to my favorite people for no other reason than to just make them smile.

It means I want to do a better job at treating my body right. That means earlier mornings and healthier snacks. Time to swap those delicious hershey kisses for some plain almonds, I can do this!

It means putting my all into these last few weddings we have to edit. We only have 1 more wedding to photograph for the year, and its going to be a very early morning for us Saturday! However, we want to go out with a bang and I'm excited to photograph in the early morning of December!

It means recognizing people around me with needs. Whether or not there are things I can do to help these people, I can always be praying for them. God has really been speaking to me lately about helping those in need. It truly just motivates me to get out of debt so we can be one step closer to blessing our loved ones, and complete strangers!

It also means spending more time in the Word. I truly feel better in EVERY aspect of my life when I make God a number one priority in my every day life. It naturally makes me a better friend, a better wife, and a better version of myself. I don't believe that's a coincidence, either.

A few fun "just because" goals?

To enjoy our little Christmas tree as much as possible.
Finish all of our family Christmas shopping by next week.
Pick a few delicious dessert recipes for when I hang at my Aunt's next weekend!
Take too many Polaroid photos, per the usual.
Pick an outfit for both the company Christmas parties coming up.
Win a couple more fantasy football games. I don't want to fall behind! ;)

I hope everyone has some fun goals to shoot for this month! Enjoy your Tuesday!


  1. I still cannot wrap my head around the fact that it's DECEMBER! Like, whaaa? You've got this girl - knock the socks off your December goals :)

  2. This is a great goal to have. Striving to be your best in all aspects of your life and putting God first is the best thing you can do. When God is a priority, everything else has a way of falling into place. Have a great day :)

  3. Such great goals girl - I think just enjoying this time is what it's all about! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. What great goals, lady. You can't do anything better than your best.

  5. It is hard to always be "on" I feel. Let's kick some December butt!

  6. I like your goals, both serious and 'for fun' ;) I definitely want to do a better job at focusing on the REAL reason for the season and not getting caught up in the hustle/bustle of it all!

  7. I love the goal of just doing your best - in every aspect of your life. That's really all you can do, so once you come to terms with that, I think you're set. I think I'll also be adopting that as my motto for the month, thanks to you! I hope you have the best December, friend!

  8. love this girl. doing your best and being your best self is all people can ask of you :)
