Hello, sweet friends! I hope you are having a delightful week.

It feels like my Mister and I just got back from our trip to NYC + Philly, and today we are traveling to North Carolina. We will be in Raleigh for a few days to visit with friends, then we're heading to Lake Norman for time with family, and then off to Charlotte for my Mister's 30th birthday weekend!

It will be a full and fun trip, but I have plans for productivity too. Our wedding is inching closer (3 months and 16 days now) and I've been working hard to slim down & get stronger for the big day. In hopes to not lose my ground, I am planning to make healthy eating choices while also mindfully indulging in some vacation fun. One of my intentions for August is to exercise daily (even if just for a short while), so I packed my running shoes, heart rate monitor, and GPS watch. Of course, I'll be wearing my Fitbit to encourage extra steps!

In addition to health-related aspirations, I would like to finishing planning my 2014 editorial calendar for this blog and Happy Living. Knowing where the blogs are heading helps me stay focused and enjoy writing more. I downloaded some great resources from CoSchedule and The B Bar to inspire and guide me on this project. I am also pushing myself to write, write, write, and write some more. The next few months are going to be busy, so I would love to have a few weeks of content drafted and ready to go.

We haven't been back to Raleigh since last winter, so I am eager to visit a few of our favorite restaurants, and catch up with old friends. I am especially excited to hang out with all three of my younger siblings for a week. It will also be nice to escape from the 100° Texas heat!

Do you have any final summer trips planned? Let me know if you have any tips or tricks to staying productive when you're not in your normal routine!
