Weekly Wishes // 133

Happy 133rd week of my wishes, folks! I’ve been doing this weekly wishes thing for quite a while, apparently. It’s a lovely time.

I think short term goal setting is a really fun way to check off more menial tasks & feel accomplished, and setting intentions for the week is a great way to keep myself accomplishing what’s important to spend my time on.

Last weeks goals…

1. Finish editing the wedding I photographed two weekends ago. I got one wedding done, I have another to go!

2. Do my first CSA deliveries. It’s my first week of deliveries for my veggie CSA program. I did it! And have this week’s packed already, too!

3. Do something not work related. I went to the movies! But otherwise worked mostly all week from sun up to sun down. 🙂

This week’s goals…..

1. Get all gardens weeded. It’s an ongoing process, but one of them needs it more than the others. One is currently weeded!

2. Get back on my workout and yoga routine. It was going super well up until I went on a trip and have been trying to catch up on work ever since.

3. Do something crafty. I miss bein’ artsy fartsy!

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Happy 132nd week of my wishes, folks! I’ve been doing this weekly wishes thing for quite a while, apparently. It’s a lovely time.

I think short term goal setting is a really fun way to check off more menial tasks & feel accomplished, and setting intentions for the week is a great way to keep myself accomplishing what’s important to spend my time on.

Whoa. I up and disappeared from this space for a while. I went on a trip to Ohio and I’ve been swamped with work ever since!!

Goals from two weeks ago…

1. Read. I didn’t. I could’ve during my 30 hours of a car trip, but uhhhhh, I didn’t.

2. Have a successful wedding shoot. I did! The images from that are almost done being edited. I shot another wedding since. I have not started editing that one. Whomp whommmpp.

3. Pack for my trip. I packed, I traveled, I took photos, and traveled home.

This week’s goals…..

1. Finish editing the wedding I photographed two weekends ago. It’s due Sunday!

2. Do my first CSA deliveries. It’s my first week of deliveries for my veggie CSA program. I’m so excited! The boxes won’t be as impressive this time of year as they are later in the summer, but there’s still an awful lot of herbs and greens, and radishes!

3. Do something not work related. I have been working from when I wake until when I go to bed since I got back from my trip. Hopefully I can squeeze in some time to be quiet and to do something for me. Like kayak, maybe!

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Happy 130th week of my wishes, folks! I’ve been doing this weekly wishes thing for quite a while, apparently. It’s a lovely time.

I think short term goal setting is a really fun way to check off more menial tasks & feel accomplished, and setting intentions for the week is a great way to keep myself accomplishing what’s important to spend my time on.

Last week’s goals…

1. Kayak. I did, I did, I did! 6 hours down the Rum River with two wonderful friends.

2. Do some pyrography. I didn’t. :-\

3. Bust out my paints. I also didn’t do this.

This week’s goals…..

1. Read. I need to take some time to read and relax.

2. Have a successful wedding shoot. I have a wedding this Saturday, here’s to hoping we’ve got nice weather.

3. Pack for my trip. I am heading to Ohio next week to shoot a wedding, and I’m feeling mildly underprepared.

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Camping at Whitetail Woods Park

I had to share pictures from this trip!! My friend Heather invited me to stay with her in this suuuuper cool cabin south of Minneapolis.

There was a huge prairie, a lot of wooded area, and the cabins were stunning. Think ikea mixed with the fanciest barn you’ve ever seen.

We did a lot of wandering. It’s not a huge park, but big enough to get some adventuring in. There are only three cabins, so there weren’t many people around, a perfect place for a quiet retreat. Or just to make a veggie filled ramen and play Morels. There was even a little log teepee style structure just down from the cabins that somebody had assembled. We ate lunch inside it, but it was super creaky and I was terrified it was going to fall on my head.

You know those places you go that make you feel more like your best self? This is totally one of those places for me.

There’s a video here if you want to see the interior!

Last week’s goals…

1. Weed the garden. I did and it looks soooooo nice..

2. Learn how to quilt. I went to my grannies… and she let me sew the top together, but I didn’t actually learn how to quilt it yet… I’ll just have to go back!

3. Create something new. I started some new pyrography projects.

This week’s goals…..

1. Kayak. It looks like we’ll have a break in our recent stretch of rain, and I think I’ll be on the water with one of my soul sisters

2. Do some pyrography. I’ve got some things drawn, I’d like to get burning on them.

3. Bust out my paints. I miss it so dearly.

Happy Wednesday, friends!
