Intentional Life Project: Improving the Mind & Soul

I have been horrible at this month's goal for the Intentional Life Project.  Seriously, horrible.  My goal this month for improving the mind and soul was to read for 20+ minutes a day.  I did it twice this month.  That's it.  I love to read, so I don't know what my excuse is.  I usually read before bed, but this spring/summer has been busy and when I go to bed, I'm too tired to read.

I'm hoping that now that it has started warming up, I can spend some time sitting out on the deck reading in the sun.  And hopefully at the beach a few times this summer too.  I love reading and I have so many books on my "to read" list that I really want to get to.

Be sure to link up your Intentional Life Project post with Bre and Ginny and be eligible to win a prize!  I'm co-hosting next month for "time with your loved one/spouse" so make sure you remember to link up so you can win :)

My goal for June is to have QUALITY alone time with my husband at least three nights per week.  We are busy in the summer, which is good and fun, but it's nice to have a little bit of time together just the two of us too.  We love to go on walks with the dog after work and it's a great way for us to talk about our day and have great conversations.  So whether it's going on a walk, eating dinner outside together on the deck, or going on a date, I want to make sure to create that good quality time even during the craziness of summer.

  1. I LOVE this! Honest - and good :). I actually changed my goal in the middle of the month because that book thing wasn't happening :).

    We actually aren't linking up until Monday - we changed it because we've been so super busy. So - make sure to link up then and tell all your friends!
