I can't believe it's already time for me to type out my monthly goals for March. February met my standard of being a month filled with rest and fellowship. Jesse and I went on some awesome dates, got to visit our good friends in Louisville, and relaxed more than usual. I'm sad it's over, but I'm also pumped to get back to shooting engagements and weddings this weekend! 

As I reflect back on February, a couple things God has taught me are to be more grateful, and that it's okay to not have things figured out. I'll write more on this in the future, but those two truths have been so good for me to meditate on throughout this past month. 

A couple exciting things happened in February I didn't have on my monthly goals. I got accepted into the Master of Arts program for TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at Murray State University! Jesse and I also put a deposit down on a Sheepadoodle puppy! We're so excited, although, it will be a lengthy waiting period before we get to meet her. 

I can't wait to see all that March has in store! Here are my monthly goals: 

March Goals

- Have 4 Sabbaths (1 per week) 
- Have no social media on all Sabbath days (not to be legalistic, this just personally helps me)
- Continue memorizing Romans 8
- Have 4 dates with Jesse (already planned these out for the month!)
- Photograph 3 weddings
- Photograph 2 engagement sessions
- Photograph 1 maternity session
- Weekly meal-prep/dinner planning
- Write at least 4 blog posts
- Continue working on organizing questionnaire + 2018 pricing sheet in Honeybook
- Read Nothing to Prove
- Be intentional and invite a group of friends over or host small group at our house
- Continue 1/2 marathon training (I'm using this training plan) 
- Sign-up for Murray half-marathon
- Continue meeting with Jesse for weekly Bible studies
- Continue meeting for Jude precept on Wednesdays (this was one of my yearly goals!)
- Get a desk for my office

Those are all my goals! If any of you reading aren't goal-setters I would highly recommend it. Writing out what I want to accomplish ahead of time helps me stay more productive rather than if I were going at things on auto-pilot with no vision in mind. It's never too late to start a list of your own!

Happy Thursday!
