December Goals & #delightinDecember

Happy December, everybody! Happy 23 days until Christmas! And most of all --or at least my favorite right now-- happy 20 days UNTIL I GO HOME! Y'all. I don't think you understand how excited I am to be in the great state of Texas for Christmas. December has barely begun and I am counting down the days. But it is my favorite month so I want it to last as long as possible.

I hope you all had a safe and splendid Thanksgiving weekend! I worked Black Friday which was a nightmare (no really, I had a nightmare about it afterwards) and the following Saturday, but Sunday brought much needed rest. It also gave me a nice, quiet night at Barnes & Noble to do a little goal-planning for the end of 2013. Also a must-have for this final month.

-Follow the She Reads Truth advent study, Emmanuel.
-Read/finish Start by Jon Acuff.
-Donate/sell unworn clothes from this season.
-Block Act I of Alice in Wonderland.
-Organize a planner for the new year.
-Host a holiday party.
-Send 3 surprises in the mail.
-See The Nutcracker.
-Re-arrange/fix up my room.
-Update Ancored in Love Divine 3x's per week.
-Pray for Seattle daily.
-Walk the lake more frequently.

I'm actually really excited about these, and they all seem manageable. Plus, here is my accountability. Sharing them with you lovely ladies (and gents if you're out there) will hopefully help. Have you set any goals for the end of the year? Any New Years' resolutions you want to pick back up on? ;)

Along with my goals, I want to share with you another part of my December. I've noticed on Instagram there has been a trend of monthly hashtags (Michaela and Nicole's #joyfilledhomechallenge last month,  Lara Casey's #clearOctober, and Lark and Bloom's #ThankYaNov are some of my favorites). I always enjoy reading through these bundles of bloggers and friends as they combine together to celebrate a certain idea or share parts of their life via social media. Yesterday I started #delightinDecember, and I cannot wait what this will bring about. 

Will you join with me? This December, let's focus on the daily delights: what we already have, what happens to us, and who our Savior is and always will be. He is faithful and present TODAY, and while we can get wrapped up in the presents under the tree let's not miss out on the gifts He gives us daily. If you want to take part, just tag your photos #delightinDecember this month :) You'll hear more about my heart on this topic later in the week.

Until then, happy December! Enjoy your Monday!
