October Goals


October is such a magical month! It also happens to be the busiest month of the year for Amanda Jameson Weddings (hooray!). While this is so, so, SO exciting, it's also a bit overwhelming. I often forget about "life" outside of my business. I'm also a worshipper, wife, daughter, friend, and ministry leader. I have gotten a little behind on my goal setting, but what better month to get back on track?!

1) Take a week day off. I am SO bad at this and justify it in so many ways. ha! I LOVE being a wedding photographer and I don't mind working on weekends but I often fall into the "feeling guilty" trap when I rest during the week. Enter feelings of constantly being tired and our poor little casa always being a mess. For the rest of October & November I have scheduled "Amanda's Day Off" in Matt & I's shared calendar.

2) Keep going strong with Financial Peace University Matt and I are 6 weeks into the 9 week course of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. We are learning a TON and are working hard to create some good habits with our money & savings. We'd like to pay off the rest of our debt in one year!

3) Prepare Sessions for Submission I have a couple weddings and sessions in my que that I'd like to submit for consideration to be published. I'd love to see my work on 100 Layer Cake & Ruffled.

4) Steward our bodies well We are still fighting through making this routine. Some weeks we do really well with healthy eating and exercise and then a busy week comes along and we find ourselves driving through Chik-fil-a multiple times a week.
