Word for the Year, update

So now is about the time of the year that I look at my goals. It has been an interesting year with some very private ups and downs. Normally I am pretty open about everything but in this season, I have felt a call to hold my cards close to my chest while still being my awesomely flawed, funtastically imperfect and authentic self. So not everything is perfect but God is still awesomely perfect and has a purpose and plan for me. Yep me. And you!

Some of my goals are going swimmingly and some are still evolving. I have started running again and hope to run a 10k in July.. but I will be satisfied with a 5k. I have been more intentional about setting short term goals and meeting them. Take that fun patio table!

I want to be reading more, studying more, mentoring more and hanging out with friends more. Lots of mores. I feel like my word had to do with discipline and time. It is a good thing I am in progress!

Start to finish… Patio Set

A week or so ago I posted a list of projects that were in progress. I have great news.. for me at least
.. I have finished a project. The patio set.

We already owned a metal cafe table and had two chairs that did not match the table. Last summer one of the chairs broke. So I was on the hunt for chairs and found a table and chairs on craigslist. I bought them for a steal (until I uncovered major rust) and I finished the work on the chairs and our table. Next I am refinishing the craigslist table and selling it.

Here is the play by play in pictures.
