Because I love making ’em! (+ it’s the summer and I can give myself some grace when it comes to not posting overly-elaborate blog posts.)

PRE-P.S. This will be my last list in this summer series. HOWEVER, I’ve really enjoyed sharing a bit more about myself in this manner…SO – I’ll plan to keep adding lists here and there throughout the coming year. It just won’t be every Thursday. Hope you enjoy!

My blogging goals…

Continue to organically grow my readership and network.

Find more ways to meaningfully engage with other bloggers.

Reach out to more brands about collaborations.

Brainstorm (and keep track of) series ideas, not just post ideas.

Create an email onboarding sequence to send out when someone subscribes to my mailing list.

Start a Finding Delight book club.

Write an ebook!

resist //
because of this poem

y’all //
because second-person plural (and Kentucky)

disparate //

vanquish //
because it sounds so old-timey, dramatic, and REGAL

fierce //
because obvious reasons

wherewithal //

& any adverbs that end in -ly like certainly, knowingly, definitely, happily, and frequently // because I over-use them (but I’m trying to learn not to)

This is the last weekend before my professor-husband’s Fall semester starts. We plan to make the most of it!

Weekend goals…

Take a bunch of photos for social media.

Finish a book or two.

Explore Decatur, AL.

Spend some time in water.

Try a new restaurant.

Work on a new side hustle project.

Send out cards to a few pen pals.

Laugh a bunch!

Note: I’ve been tracking my days on the Daylio app for a little over a month now. (Have you ever used this app?) Something that always seems to be present when I rank a day as being “THE BEST”? Doing anything new — going somewhere I’ve never been, trying a new food, starting a new book, etc. etc. Trying to set my weekend goals accordingly! (I guess I love an adventure!!)

Tell me what you plan to do this weekend in the comments below! xoxo
