This is so inspiring, you're on a roll! My list has been a bit of a dud this year, but I'm surprisingly okay with that. A little is better than none, right?
I got my dryer balls here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/WeKeepItReal
Also, please share your blog calendar technique! I'm feeling ready to ease back into blogging but need some organizational inspiration.

You really have accomplished A LOT. I need to get back to monthly goals. It really does help me to change habits and feels so good at the end of the month. Also, that trampoline sleepover sounds so fun! Good idea.
