Things on my mind lately:
  • Household budgeting and sticking to it. We updated our budget and our efforts to be more aware of our finances. Being married and owning a house has changed the way we approach money- we've reassessed our savings goals, spending priorities, planning ahead, and looking at household finances as a whole rather than just who pays which bills.

  • Returning to my running routine and challenging myself to run longer races.

  • Upcoming house projects: Painting the blue room, cleaning up the yard, planning a new patio and gardens.

  • Springtime in Albany. I forgot how lovely it is, but these first few warm days have me remembering tulips and parks and sunny neighborhoods and sidewalk lunches.
