My Summer Bucket List..


  • blog twice a week

  • deep clean house

  • take more pictures again- probably could still take more

  • research next car purchases (we are not ready to buy, just so we are ready when my car stops working)

  • money day with Andrew (where we just talk through our finances and review our goals)

  • go to the pool often

  • go to the beach

  • see my grandparents in Annapolis

  • see my grandparents in Ohio

  • have a cookout

  • watch Downton Abbey on Netflix

  • I never got to learn to sew.  Maybe next summer???

Infact I came to the computer this morning to look for resources to organize my art business. Im just so lost when it comes to money. Spreadsheets, envelopes etc... I will definitly be coming back here! Thanks for devoting your time to writing here. You have inspired me today!
