Intentions for the Week:

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Hello friend!

Hope you’re doing well. This weekend we drove into the city to hang out with my Dad and niece (who is staying with him this summer!). We had dim sum and then hung out on my Dad’s roof with wine. Yesterday we strolled around Sausalito, looked at all the funny names of boats and had lunch. Family time on the weekend is the best. Especially when there are food adventures involved.  Did you have a nice weekend? What makes a good weekend for you? I’d love to hear what your ingredients are that make up a good weekend.

We have a few trips coming up, so I am starting packing lists and daydreaming about adventures.

I also need to figure out where to get my prints done for the paintings I made for #100daysartbeforebreakfast.

Can anyone recommend a good place online?

What about you?

What are you up to this week?

Write down your Intentions for the Week in a journal or on a piece of paper and commit!

Have a great week!

  • Leslie

    I just saw your piece in Better Homes & Gardens. It’s GORGEOUS! Beautiful photos & tips. I am definitely going to try out the Chicken-Zucchini Meatball Subs this week.

    i have the intuitive eating book (not the workbook) and joined a couple of Facebook groups too. i’m interested to know what you think of it. for several reasons, i am thinking it’s not a good fit for me, despite my high hopes.

    For printing needs – check out El-Co Labs. They are in New Jersey, so unfortunately not local at all for you. But I’ve been working with them for over a decade and recently turned an amateur photographer friend on to them and he was extremely pleased with his prints.

  • Megan

    Oh exciting!!! I love BH&G, and will especially enjoy seeing someone I “know” on the pages. 🙂

  • Ashley

    Love the Better Homes & Gardens spread. I’m glad they kept your personal touches in the meal prep photos (like your handwriting, recipes, and containers). You look darling, too! Yay!
