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:


Happy Monday, friends!

We’re in Idaho this week visiting family & vacationing. One of the new things I like to do before a trip is to spend some time during family dinner the night before mapping out our intentions for our vacations.

If you haven’t done, this I highly recommend you do. It helps you see what other people in your family want for their trip. It’s a great way to say what you want and what you need for your time away.  You can always refer back to it when people aren’t respecting your wishes!

All you need is an index card and a pen and you’re ready to go! Make sure you ask for what you need!

Intentions for the Week

  • read a book (I’m almost done with Calypso and Casey is reading Into Thin Air)
  • pool time
  • family walks
  • play golf (not me)
  • river rafting adventure
