monthly wrap-up & goals

GoalsEmily TuckerComment

this month:

july was crazy, busy, relaxing, stressful and wonderful. all at the same time but feeling so much peace and joy. leaving the bay area was by far the hardest and I think best decision we've ever made. it hurts our hearts to leave the area we were born & raised in but we are already making strides of progress and having tons of fun here. the pace of life is slower & simultaneously kinder than the bay. we have already spent time with my cousins twice this month, my mom came two weekends, we had our first date night, I had a ladies night in, and we attended a church that was enjoyed by the whole family. still sort of midway through unpacking & decorating. have to make an enjoyable/dreaded Ikea trip to hopefully finish up our home stuff needs. I haven't worked out all month but have been so busy and sweating that I haven't gained weight but I can tell my strength is lame right now.
