Goals: Hello July / by Rachel Nordgren


Well hello there, summer.

Summer means we're officially over the halfway mark of 2015 (!!?!) and there's still plenty of time to make progress on those 2015 goals. How are YOUR goals coming, friend? Do you feel like you're losing steam or just ramping up?

In other news, last month Hans and I adopted a kitten named Sybil, and she's boss at cuddling at being adorable. She's also currently asleep on my lap, making it extremely difficult to get up and reheat my coffee.

The sacrifices I make, y'all.

If you want to see more of Sybil, she's basically the star of all of my Snapchats. I'm still debating on whether or not I like Snapchat as a social media medium, but it's fun to play around with and I'd love to see you over there! My username is rachnordgren.

Now, let's talk about some goals, shall we?

I know these monthly goal posts are short, but it's a small way to check in and give myself accountability with my goals every month. Thank you for sharing the journey!

What goals do YOU have for this month, friend?
