oh em gee, it’s july. the half way mark in the year.
it’s also my birthday month. so normally i take this time to reflect and regroup.
as i look back on my new year resolutions i laugh. they were so ambitious and unrealistic. as i turn twenty.eight. (eek) the sense of urgency to “get my shit together” is mounting. because let’s get real, being broke and thirty is not a good look.
aside from being debt free, twenty.eight. is going to be the year i start my passion project, aka my etsy shop. the shop will center around something i learned to make from my grandmother: tote bags.
i am so proud of myself, last night i cut the fabric, and started my sewing machine. only to find out that the thread i bought was too fragile for my machine! usually i take setbacks as “signs” but not this time. i instantly went on amazon prime and bought thread. i’ll report back later this week on how the project is going.
in the meantime, what is your passion project? i’d love to hear some of your hopes/dreams so please share with me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
March, one of my favorite months out of the year. Why? Well when you live in South Florida it means gorgeous weather in perfect temps (high 70s) and relatively low humidity. Add that to time springing forward (hello longer days/more sunshine) and you’ve got a win win situation.
Spring’s arrival brings the perfect platform to do some cleaning, both physically and fiscally. Below are some of my top priorities for March:
update on the major life decision of “do i really need this bag”
i opted against buying the bag! i haven’t felt this successful since i graduated college…SIX YEARS AGO! woohoo, adulting, ftw!
sidenote: i’m typing this while i eat a $13 salad…you win some, you lose some? debt diet? TGIF!
