August Goals + Giveaway

Hello August! You've gotten off to a bit of a hectic start, but I'm so glad you are here!

  1. Find Living Arrangement in Richmond: this is in the process, but isn't done yet.  
  2. Host the First Wednesday's Words Linkup: I'm so excited about this! You can read more here.
  3. Get in a New Routine: My biggest struggle being in new places is getting into a routine.  Once I get into a routine, things are just better!
  4. Explore Richmond: This is broad because I've never been to Richmond.  We don't have long before the end of the season, but I want to do some fun things while we are there.
  5. Prioritize Quiet Time: Finding time to be still during the craziness of our move has been hard.  I need to make sure this is a focus.
  6. Love on my Sponsors: I am so thankful for my sweet sponsors this month! I can't wait to introduce them to yall!
  7. Get Organized: As of now, all of our stuff is in my car.  I'm hoping to unload what we won't need in Richmond when I get to Tupelo.  Hopefully, I can go ahead and unpack and put up this first load so the end of the season isn't so crazy!
So those are my all over the places goals for August.  I guess it is appropriate since I'm all over the place right now.  Bear with me, hopefully by the end of next week I'll be normal!

Oh Simple Thoughts is having a birthday! And because what is a birthday without some goodies! Here is one awesome birthday giveaway for you all. One year subscription to the lovely printable library of Elle & Co. Design (if you want to learn more check out my previous post), motivational coffee mug, and a retro camper headband!
A big thanks to all these lovely ladies for celebrating my blog's birthday and helping to make this giveaway possible! Make sure and give them some love!


  1. Yay for setting practical goals!! Sometimes it's the easiest ones that are the hardest to get done - like organizing! I have a few projects I need to stop putting off ;). Have an awesome weekend!!

    1. I definitely needed a month of practical goals! Yessss, organizing is one that I put off all the time!! Have a great end of the week! :)
