Hey hey hey hey happy Friday! How was everyone’s week!? It started out sunny and warm here and ended cool and very rainy. Not complaining though – I love a little rain once in a while. I’m headed to a Galentine’s Wine Night at Brooke’s tonight (and whipping up a fun Valentine’s recipe that I’ll share here next week!!) and then to hear Deirdre’s husband John DJ at Faculty Lounge (come if you’re local!!!). After that – no plans whatsoever and very happy about it. See you on Monday (with an editorial calendar in full force!!)

So, I’m a day late, but I’m here sharing my goals for February. After a wonderful weekend with friends, and a surprise visit from my parents / two favorite people in the world, I took Sunday off from blogging. Hence, goal number three. While New Year’s Resolutions were wonderful, I think I function better and accomplish more when I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I’d love to make this an ongoing series, but we will see how that goes! For now, my February goals…
Instagram is one of my favorite parts of blogging (with snapchat slowly, but surely, making it’s way up the list…), but lately I’ve felt uninspired to take photos and unmotivated to post consistently. Because of that, I’ve hit a bit of a plateau. This month, my main social media focus will be Instagram, and I’ll be posting once a day (hold me to this!). I miss looking at things with a different perspective and better taking in my surroundings.
Over the summer, I consistently attended spin classes at EcoFitness. The classes were amazing, and I felt like I had finally found a workout that I loved. Since then, I’ve slacked a little and my membership is about to expire. Last night, I tried Revolution downtown, and I’m obsessed. The overall experience was a lot more difficult and even more gratifying. My favorite part about exercise classes is disconnecting completely from my phone, social media, email, and work for 45-60 minutes. It is more important for me to take that time for my mind than my body!
After Alt Summit (in the process of recapping), I decided to be more consistent in planning the content on my blog. I have lots of fun ideas in mind, and I want to follow through with them instead of drafting posts the night before posting (okay, this might not change). I met some wonderful potential sponsors at the conference, and I’ve been brainstorming creative and interesting ways to work with them to provide new content over here.
Hopefully, sharing these goals here will hold me accountable. I’d love to hear if you have any goals set for February!

Hoooooray it’s Friday. Some weeks are worse than others and this has been one of them. I think it’s the first week I’ve really readjusted since the holidays (since I had some work travels!), and it hit me hard. Of course, the car issues didn’t really help either. LUCKILY, I have some super amazing friends in Charleston, and I got to spend a lot of time with them after work everyday! PLUS, three of my best college pals are headed to town today, and I cannot wait to see them. Hope everyone has a good weekend!
