it's november!


How was your Halloween? I can't believe it's November already! The year is almost over!

I saw this great post idea over on the lovely Miss Candice's blog. She made a list of a few things/goals she wants to accomplish during the month, so I though I'd do the same. At the begining of each month I'm going to share a few things I hope to achieve that month... whether they're silly or serious, I hope to feel more accomplished when I start checking things off!

Here's just a few of mine...

1/ Take more photos.
2/ Get back into morning workouts.
3/ Drink more water.
4/ Read a book. (Any suggestions?)
5/ Get a new sketchbook.

Do you have any goals for the month?


  1. I can't believe it's Nov. already either! It's crazy. I love all of your goals for the month. I'm so with you on working out. I also have a ton of book rec's, but there's so many let me know if you want me to email them to you. :)

  2. I am with you on the workouts and water! Have to get prepared for holidays. :)

  3. Great idea! Your list looks very similar to what mine would be :)

  4. I totally agree with all of those! Many are on my list too :)

  5. i'm on the hunt for a good book too. i keep seeing "the paris wife" everywhere. maybe it's good?

  6. my first goal should be to just put down the halloween candy...why is it calling to me at all times of the day?!

    these are great goals - you know i'm a fan of morning workouts :)

  7. Oh I need to do this! I have vague goals in my head all the time, but I think it would help if I actually wrote them down! Thanks for the reminder :)

  8. If you haven't read Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay, I HIGHLY recommend it. I read it in a day!! I think there's going to be a movie for it soon.

  9. I love this! I need to make one--tomorrow? :)
    You should definitely read The Help if you haven't already.
    Also, The Art of Racing in the Rain.
    Love, love, love!
    Love, Leigh

  10. simply beautiful! I love the book idea...:-) I have been trying to read more. Have you ever read the Hunger Games series? (SO SO GOOD!)


  11. I also think the book idea is fantastic. I read a lot of legal {boring} books for my work, so I think trying to read something fun is fabulous! I'm also training for a half marathon, so working out tops my list too!


  12. Great ideas Jess. I am trying to make sure I write more hand written notes to loved ones!
    :) Happy november!

  13. Love this...I want to get a head start on my DIY Christmas presents this month! Just found your blog and I'm all about it. Xo, Katie

  14. woohoo it's my birthday month!!

    monthly goals is a great idea...I may have to do this myself. Listing stuff monthly makes it more attainable, you know?

  15. Love your resolutions. Take more photos is a constant on my list!

    Happy November!

  16. If you're looking for a great new book and haven't read this one yet, I definitely suggest One Day :)

  17. I just saw your comment on my blog. I don't know how I missed your November goals. Drinking more water is a good one. I should definitely add that to my list, maybe for December.

    Candice is my swap partner for Cold Hands Warm Hearts swap. I can't wait to check out her blog further. I did a quick peek and I like it already.

    I don't know if I can recommend a book for you to read. I am so into young adult novels right now. I just finished the trilogy on the Wolves of Mercy Falls (Shiver, Longer and Forever) but I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. I am currently re-reading Breaking Dawn before the movie comes out.

    Hope you are having a great weekend!


Thanks for stopping by! Your comments make me smile!!

I try my best to respond to questions/comments via email.
