Maybe it's just the blooming flowers and all the cute baby animals, but spring always makes me think warm and fuzzies, growth and progress. It's such a nice time of change, a time to grow and relax and hang out and appreciate what you've got and what you're getting.
Spring makes me wax philosophical, I know. But I just love it. I can't help it!
And with spring, I'm making some changes in life. Some very personal (mostly of a financial nature, eh hem), some internet-y (new blog design coming? who knows? well, now you do), some appearance-wise. Spring is just a good time for this kind of thing, you know? And of course, I'm setting goals. Because, how could I not be setting goals and being intentional about things? That would just be weird, right?
In March, my posting three times a week goal went well, but any sort of financial restraint went out the window (oh hello, J Crew outlet that is way too close to my apartment). That's going to have to change in April. I left this job, which while meaning I now have less of an income outside VCP, it also means I save money by not eating out every day, a bonus. Losing weight didn't happen, but I'm getting a bike soon so it will, and I did practice making my handwriting cute but did not write creatively or study Spanish even once. Yeah.
I'm also still looking for a blog conference to go to this year, so if you know of any good ones near DC that still have registration open, let me know!
In April, I Will...
Do one DIY project
Finish Uncle Tom's Cabin
(Health + Exercise Bucket)
Lose two pounds
Work out three times a week
Enjoy that bluebonnet photo session I'm doing on Saturday (I still have a few open spots, Texans!)

Study Spanish three times a week.
Stop biting my lips (the worst habit).
