To-Do Lists

My life is run by to-do lists these days. 

Each Monday when I arrive at my office I start my weekly list with little boxes next to it. (Does anyone else find it fulfilling to check off those little boxes?!) I take a look at last weeks list and re-write what didn't get done on the new list. I prioritize and get going.

Sunday night Blake and I wrote out the first two months of our wedding to-do list. 

I have my own personal lists of things I need to get done.

While I love the focus and efficiency that comes with my to-do lists, sometimes I just want to throw that list out the window and just spend a day or two wandering. Nothing to get done but getting so much done. Does that even make sense? 

While I feel it is important to write down what needs to get done to help yourself be focused and driven, I think sometimes it is important to just let go. Easier said than done, though, am I right? 

So here is to each of us finding a day in our week, or month if that is what works for you, where you don't write a list down. A day where you just let go and live. Can you just imagine where that day might take you? 

What will you see because you aren't busy looking down at your list? 

What conversations will you be able to have because you aren't so focused on what needs to get done? 

What relationships will you build because you've given them your undivided attention?

How do you stay organized? And how do you let go?

Stay awesome,

Date Night: Tolmie State Park

Tolmie State Park
Bear Butt
Just for the record we did not plan the sock matching. We are just that in tune with each other. #cheesy

Blake and I headed to Tolmie State Park here in Lacey for a quick date night last week. Between my crazy busy job and Blake's full time work and full time school we don't get to get out and do stuff very often. Any chance we get to be outside we jump on it!

Tolmie State Park is a great state park on Puget Sound where you have a great view of the Olympics and as you can see beautiful colors. 

And check out Bear Butt, they have way cool hammocks and nifty waterproof picnic blankets. It's one of Blake's best friends business and he hooked us up with this great blanket for our adventures. 

Even though our date only lasted for maybe two hours I'm so grateful for the time we got to sit, talk about current life, the future, and just enjoy the great outdoors. It seems crazy to me that we lasted seven months in two different states but we are so grateful to be together in the same state now. 

Have a great weekend!
