I know I say this every month, but REALLY – where did June go???  June 2013

We spent three weeks traveling, so I guess I have a decent excuse for feeling like it was rushed.  Hopefully by sticking around all of July it won’t feel like I blinked and summer was over!  To re-cap:


  • Write and submit one guest post – didn’t happen
  • Have blog posts written one week ahead (and further to cover vacations), create July blog schedule – done!  I wouldn’t have made it if I hadn’t done this one!
  • Come up with some new seasonal recipes – this is EASY in the summer, so many good fresh veggies and fruits available! – done, Mango Tahini Smoothie, the perfect Margarita, Trail Mix and Grilled Zucchini Salsa
  • Host a giveaway – next month – I do have one planned, just didn’t get to it!
  • Find several new uses for Valor (the oil for June) – done, loving Valor, whenever we have a sore back, we use it now!
  • Start research and planning for next big group project – will start January 2013 – began this, but have a way to go


  • Read 4 books – done, The Slow Down Diet (great book!), Let the Great World Spin, Wolf by the Ears, Desperate  Check them out HERE or at your local library
  • Enjoy our annual “grown up trip” and summer family vacation! – So. Much. Fun.
  • Hang out with my friends at least 2x – done – much easier now that the weather is nice – we naturally congregate outside!
  • Exercise 5-6x per week – not my best month, although I did walk on the beach, at amusement parks, and did a little yoga now and then
  • One-on-one time with each child – done!
  • Clean out office – well, I started!

How did your monthly goals go?  After such a fun and interesting June, I’m definitely ready to get back to work in July!

Speaking of July, our oil this month is Purification – and it’s a VERY cool and useful oil (smells great too).  Check out the details HERE and order a bottle so you can join the group!
