Weekend Reading: Volume VI

It seems like just yesterday that I was saying that I couldn’t believe it was November and now it’s December. This year keeps on flying by! Can you believe there are only three and a half weeks until Christmas?! I can’t!

This weather and the fact that it gets dark around five o’clock are getting me down. It’s making taking photos outside miserable, because I don’t do too well with cold weather. Winter seems to always make me feel unmotivated because I never want to spend a lot of time taking photos.

Due to it being towards the end of the year, I’ve been starting to think of goals that I want to set for myself and my two blogs, as well as content that I want to write for the remainder of the year, and for January. My biggest goal is to increase my productivity and write a week’s worth of posts in one day, so I can relax, focus on other things in my life, and then just focus on promoting said posts. Then I can spend one day taking photos and another half day editing photos. Being organized and making the most of your time is so incredibly important when you own a business!

A couple of days ago, I got together with some of my blogger fam to eat some delicious dinner at a local restaurant and to watch the University of Kentucky Wildcats play Monmouth. It’s always such a great time when you can spend it with friends! This weekend, I have some exciting plans! Just wait until you see where I’m going!
