Spring Break

Spring Break has finally arrived in Montana and it actually feels like Spring! I’ll be taking the week off from posting to hangout with the kids, get outdoors and dive into some new projects.

Plus I’ll be doing my quarterly review. It’s always important to take a step back and look at the areas of life that are important to you and do a check in. In my finances, relationships, professionally and lifestyle I ask myself a set of questions. I carve out 4-8 hours to do my quarterly review. Whenever you are trying to make significant progress in different areas of life or if your life has a few competing priorities, like ours does, these times for planning and reflection are key.

I’m also tackling some site revamping this week. =) Thanks to everyone who filled out the survey (if you haven’t yet, I would really appreciate it!) See you all next week!

If you sign up for my weekly email and I’ll send the newest posts your way every Monday. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
