Hard to believe, but it’s time to plan our October 2018 goals.

It’s funny because my little fall-loving heart says “I’m-so-excited-for-fall!”

But the Virginia humidity says: hahahahaha – think again!

The weather is trying to cooperate, temperatures are dropping at night, but the humidity continues to hang around.

Oh well… I’m holding out hope that it’ll cool off soon and we will be able to do all our favorite fall activities!

Some of my favorites are pumpkin patch visits, testing new fall cocktails (and tasting them of course), breaking out all the cute fall boots, and nights spent with friends around the bonfire.

Oh, and (of course) pumpkin spice everything!!!

#basicwhitegirl and proud of it 😉

October 2018 Goals

Personal Goals

  • Take the kids pumpkin picking – we’ve done this for years at Cullipher Farms out in Pungo, can’t wait to do it again!
  • Fall Family Photos – I’m so excited to take some updated pictures of our little family of five! (especially since in our last photos my middle son Jett was shorter than me, and now he is way taller than I am!)
  • Start Holiday Shopping for my family – it sounds totally crazy. But I like to start way early and pick up things one at a time so it doesn’t feel so crazy come December.
  • Kitchen Makeover – my handsome hubby Eric is actually the one doing all the work, but he’s updating our old, outdated kitchen and making it absolutely gorgeous! This project won’t be finished in a month, but I can’t wait to share photos when it’s finished!


Business Goals

  • Plan out the rest of the year – blog post ideas, finish marketing schedule, decide on holiday closing dates, etc.
  • Keep on top of editing/blogging our gorgeous client weddings (especially since we’ve got back to back weddings)
  • Rock and Roll teaching the fall photography classes at MOCA – can’t wait to meet all my new students.
  • Host a few photographer meetups (you can see all the fun we’re up to via this link) – please join in!
