Home Again

I'm finally back home after an epic holiday and Autumn has arrived, well kind of. It's still too hot here in D.C, but Labor Day has been and gone, the students have returned to AU (looking insanely young), and most importantly Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back in Starbucks, yay!, so it's officially not summer anymore.

Autumn always feels to me like the real start of the year, so I always approach it with goals, and sticky notes! This year I have a goal for the blog. I'm planning to blog tree days a week.

Monday - Book Review (starting next week) or a quote of I haven't had much reading time.

Wednesday - RTW (if I like the topic) or a random post on something bookish.

Friday - Five Things I've loved this week

Other goals include

Query Emma Undone
Finish the first draft of the WIP by mid October, so I'm all ready for Disney and then NaNoWriMo
Train for and run a 5km. I've been inspired by my husband whose running the D.C Marathon again this year. He was very good about training on holiday, which inspired me to take more exercise.

Does Autumn feel like a new beginning to you and if it does what are your goals/hopes?

  2. I'm so glad you're back! I missed you while you were on your hols. :)

    Your plan for the blog sounds great, and your "New Year" goals are wonderful! I've got a goal to be more physically active, too. No 5K for me, but I am going to try to walk every day. Maybe next year I'll try for a short race...

    Good luck with your WIP--can't wait to read it! EU will be snatched up very quickly, I'm sure.

  3. Yay, I found your blog!

    And I drank a pumpkin spice latte today for the first time! Oh my goodness, absolute heaven. Now we just need to beg Georgetown Cupcake to make a delicious pumpkin cupcake for Halloween! Already drooling over it...
