September was insane, what is usually one of my favorite months of the year was just an absolute whirlwind and I feel like I didn’t get to enjoy it at all! I blinked and it was gone. Not necessarily a bad thing, busy is good in my mind, and I was definitely busy. I’m feeling a bit more settled into my job, I am starting to get a better grasp on my clients and what I actually do at the firm, thankfully. I also wrapped up a really successful week long campaign that I have been working really hard on, pretty much since the day I started!
It was a really fun month despite the craziness at work! I definitely took full advantage of the great weather we had and did a ton. Maine at the beginning of the month was so much fun! And then a couple weeks ago a friend had another friend visiting from Charleston, we spent the weekend brunching at the apartment, hitting a Gatsby party, H St festival, touring DC by bike, plus a few museums. To finish off the month I hit some DC breweries (I didn’t really know that was even a thing until this summer) on a bike tour last weekend with a group of friends! It was a very, very full and extremely fun month!
I’m excited that fall is finally here, it’s cooling off and the pumpkins, mums and sunflowers have invaded every grocery store in the city. I don’t hate it, at all. With fall comes October goals, I’ve been trying to do this every month for the last 4 or so and I have to say it’s a really good way to track things that play into bigger goals I have set for the year.
blogging // Blogging took a backseat this month, yet again. I took some serious steps this month to avoid that from happening again though and I’m really hoping that this new work-blog-life balance is going to work out. This space makes me happier than pretty much anything else and y’all are the biggest reason for that, so I’m sorry for putting you on the back burner and thank you so much for sticking with me. I promise to be better 🙂
eating // I was doing well there for a little while, saving money, cooking my own meals. That completely went out the window last month and I’m going to work really hard to get back on track. I’m working with an absolutely incredible wellness coach, more on this on Wednesday, and she’s really been helping me to kind of figure out easy ways to help keep me on track! I can’t wait to share a few with you!
exercise // Much like the whole eating thing, this month I’m really trying to get back on track.
work // Work kicked my butt last month. I’m really enjoying my new job and this month will be another month of trying to get my bearings and work on this whole work-life balance thing everyone keeps talking about.
