October Goals

Oh, Hi October. I like you best of all with your crisp air and chilly mornings and leaves changing colors. Please stay a while.

Hi friends! Another month has passed us by and with it comes my most favorite time of year; fall. I'm obsessed with everything about this time of year and days like today make it easy to see why. My house is clean, my windows are open and my fall scented candles are lit. I've started putting out my cute little pumpkins everywhere, too. I'm in love with it all but I think my absolute favorite thing about this time of year is the start to the holidays and family gatherings.

There's something about this time of year that makes me excited for new beginnings and goals. Last month I feel like I lost all motivation. I don't know what hit me but I got super quiet and just took a step back from all social media, it wasn't intentional, it just happened and I went with it. I'm learning to live with grace and not beat myself up when things don't go according to plan but, as a result, a lot of my goals just didn't happen. Here's how I did with September's Goals and my goals for October.

October's goals are simple because I believe that simplicity is the key, especially as I enter into the busyness of the holiday season.

In case you'd like to join in the Instagram Challenges i'm doing, here are the prompts and hashtags.

What are some of you goals for this month?


  1. I love when bloggers share their monthly goals! (I've been bad at doing that, but I always think those posts are fun to read!) Best of luck on all of your goals, and I'm going to go follow your Instagram account right now!

  2. You got this girl!! I failed at eating less sugar and pre-planning my IG posts too.

  3. Happy Monday Sweet Friend!! I hope you had a great weekend!!! I know you've been super busy over the last few months, so congrats on accomplishing most of your goals last month!! I felt like last month I ran around like a chicken with their head cut off. I honestly do not know where September went for me.

    This month I too want to work out at least 3 x's a week. I have gotten much better with working out. I need to decorate my house for Fall. I am a major slacker! I wish there were more hours in the day to get everything I would love to get done completed. I really need to get back into being more organized. Here's to us accomplishing our goals for this month!!!


  4. Yes! Read Grace not Perfection--it's a good read and well worth it!

  5. Girl!! I totally feel ya about not feeling motivated! Good luck with everything this month.

  6. Your baking goals sound on point ;) Good luck with everything, I love the start of a new month and season!

  7. I love your goals! I especially like the one about doing something nice for your hubby. I should really implement that one. ;P

  8. Great goals. I am trying to eat healthier as well and it's not working out. Lol. I love the reaching out to a friend goal. I think that's something I should do as well. I wish you the best with achieving them!

  9. Good for you for working out at least 4 days a week! That is not an easy goal to accomplish and I feel like if you can master that, so many others will fall into place because you'll feel so good about yourself. Cheers to October!

  10. OMG, I love the pumpkins in your picture. Good luck with your goals, I love that you include self care and relationship building types of goals. I am reading the same book this month! Love Emily Ley.

  11. Such fun October challenges and goals. Good luck!
