Weekly Wishes 05.

memories, travel, mementos, paris, weekly wishes

I hope you guys enjoyed yesterday’s Mexico pictures! Even though it’s only been a couple of weeks, it feels like my trip was a long time ago, so it’s been nice to look through the pictures and remember what a great time I had. The second installment from Mexico should be up on the blog later this week and the final part will be up next week.

I missed a week of “Weekly Wishes” while I was gone, but I’m back at it today. The photo theme for this week was memories and I chose the picture above because I also like to collect little mementos when I travel. I save everything, from plane ticket stubs to brochures, and when I get home I tuck them away in a little box in a corner of my closet. I don’t know if I’ll ever do anything with these little bits of my trips, but I like to hold on to them just in case.

Happily, I was successful with my last set of goals, which involved getting ready for Mexico, taking a lot of pictures, and having a great time. It’s been really hard to settle back into the daily routine, but I think I’m finally getting there.

This week I want to…

– figure out what kind of holiday cards I want to send. Last year, I decorated the cards myself. This year I’m not sure if I want to make them by hand again, or I’ve also been considering designing and purchasing photo cards. Do you guys send holiday cards? If so, have you already started the process?

– start my holiday shopping. Somehow, I already feel like I’m behind, which is silly because we still have several weeks to go before Christmas. Still, I want to get my lists in order so that I’ll be prepared to take advantage of upcoming Black Friday deals.

– start reading The Circle, my pick for book club. I got in lots of reading time on my vacation, which was great, as now I’m one book away from meeting my Goodreads challenge. I also want to come up with a few ideas of snacks to serve at our next book club meeting. Pinterest, here I come!

Tell me: What are your goals for this week?
