Hello love! Monthly I do a review and also create my next month’s dreams. This reflection exercise allows me to stay accountable, review goals, celebrate, and note what needs adjustment. I duplicate this process in my Daybook, too, since I’m a paper lover!

You’ll also find an assortment of June’s photos plus a roundup of all things TDJ this month and Savvy Sources I thought you’d enjoy. Bisous. x
