Smart Goal Setting: New City / New Mindset!

The move to San Diego went well! Pretty much 90% was unpacked the first day with the help of our photographer friends who live in San Diego. We met them at a photog conference and even though we’re no longer in the same industry, we’ve been able to keep in touch, and we’re so grateful for them.

I knew last month would be insane, so I only gave myself a few goals to keep. Unfortunately, the one that’s supposed to be most important (calling home once a week) didn’t get done. I’ve been feeling bummed and guilty about it. I mean.. I should really want to call my parents and not have to make this a goal! Can’t throw myself a pity party though. I just have to try harder next time.

Last month’s highlights on instagram:

Some friends from LA came into Vegas, and we saw Mariah Carey and checked it off my Vegas Bucket List! We also went on our weekly dates – a speakeasy, got ring tattoos, went to a strawberry festival, and ate lots and lots of ice cream. See all of last month’s goals here.
