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!

It’s our first Monday of December. How does it feel? I went to an event last night for Whole Foods and forgot to bring a jacket and it was an outdoor dinner! So far, December feels COLD. Don’t forget to bring a jacket!

This weekend we spent some time working around the house. Laundry is almost done as we start the week, and it’s these small victories that make me happy.  I’ve spent a lot of time at social gatherings lately (hello, holidays!) which cuts into my laundry at night process during the week so I am glad to be caught up.

I’ve got packages to compile and things to ship out. I’m waiting on our holiday cards to come in so I can address them like a mad woman and GO!

This week is going to be busy socially so I have to make sure I get all of my regular nighttime stuff done so don’t fall behind.

Somehow, it will all get done and if not, it will have to be OK. That’s the headspace I’m in for December. How about you?

If you’re ever feeling lost, write out your Intentions for the week. It helps!

    “Somehow, it will all get done and if not, it will have to be OK.”
    That’s gold! I want this in calligraphy on my office wall… Thank you, Tracy!

    Also, I feel you on the laundry situation. December sure does mess up our precious everyday rhythm as well. Allowing myself to let things “be OK” is a challenge.

    Thanks for the playlist! I will keep that motto on mind with all there is to do at this time of year. Very excited about your Food Journal for sale soon. Have a great week!

    I just joined a Facebook “steps challenge” for December. It’s easy to slow down and cozy up in December. I need that extra push to keep moving.
