Goals for September 2017

September is going to be an insanely packed month of me and I’ve known this a long time now. With four Stellaluna Events weddings and a personal wedding at the end of the month there is not a whole lot of time (especially during the weekends) to spare.


I’ve had the mindset for some time now that it is just going to be really busy (still hate that word) and I won’t have time to do anything – but I’m a big believer with a little careful planning and strategic goal setting you can make anything happen. So in an effort to make sure September 2017 doesn’t slip away from me – here are my goals.


  1. Go out on the boat once a week – we love week night boat picnics or cocktail cruises
  2. Jump in the lake at least one more time.
  3. Get pumpkin ice cream at Plainwell Ice Cream (sounds gross but SO good!)
  4. Workout 4 times a week.
  5. Go apple picking.
  6. Touch Lake Michigan one more time.
  7. Carve out more intentional time in the morning – reading, light candles, coffee, etc.
  8. Spend Sundays resting and doing something fun – after Saturday weddings Sundays are typically spent on the couch relaxing and I always feel like the day is wasted. So I want to spend the first half of the day resting on the couch and the second half doing something fun and relaxing (going for a walk, boat ride, going to Lake Michigan, etc.)
  9. Drink more water – this is something I always need to improve on especially during wedding weeks!
  10. Post weekly on Sailors Delight – if you haven’t checked it out already this is my new Coastal Lifestyle Blog!


So there you have it! Ten goals that are important and will bring me more happiness. At the end of September I will do a full recap and let you know if my goals were achieved or not.


Comment below and tell me what your goals are for September!

    Love this list. Thanks for inspiring me to put together my own before the chaos of the fall ensues.

      Yes! Totally do it! I’ll probably start doing one every month. Especially in the winter because all I want to do is eat, drink and stay under blankets lol
