So hard to believe that another month has come and gone…seems like Christmas was only a week ago…oh, how quickly this year is flying by.

Today I have been sitting here gathering ideas for future blog posts and contemplating ways to make the month of June special for our family.
In my last post, I listed some of my blogging and life goals for June. They were…

STARTING THE DAY OFF RIGHT…In June, I will continue character studies with the Rebekah book in this same series.

GETTING DRESSED…In June I will share the forty piece wardrobe that I have finally finished creating, review the app ClosetSpace, do a segment on foundation, and hopefully start working on my laundry room.

 EATING BREAKFAST…In June, want to gather resources to help you write and publish cookbooks, and possibly other books, in order to have a cookbook published in time for Christmas.

DROPPING THE KIDS OFF...In June I want to develop a survival game plan for the remaining timespan that my daughter is home from Ole Miss for the summer.

HEADING OFF TO WORK...In June, I hope to create a command center that will eventually become my reception/reservations center for our bed and breakfast. 

LASTING THROUGH LUNCH...In June, I want to begin a monthly series of three posts per month on packing lunches for work…The Bento Box, Fat Stanley, and Keeping Cool. 

MAKING DINNER PLANS…In June, I will study the importance and role of eggs in baking.

SATISFYING THE SWEET TOOTH...In June I want to focus on red, white, and blue desserts during this patriotic season.

CREATING A HOME…In June I hope to begin to do a series on doing laundry, talk about scents in the home, and finally start to clear, organize, and decorate our laundry room.

GETTING HEALTHY...In June I hope to study the best foods to meet your daily protein recommendations.

CELEBRATING LIFE/SEWING A STRAIGHT SEAM…In June I hope to get my sewing room back into working condition, write my review of Stalin’s Daughtet, and begin another selection from my book list.
