Desktop Wallpaper: May 2016 Calendar

Well, it's May already! We're currently off road tripping through small towns scattered around the Netherlands and running through tulip fields so it seemed fitting to base this month's wallpaper off of that! Tulip season in the Netherlands is an absolute dream that I've always wanted to experience and it's just the start of a crazy packed month for us. Just a few short days after we get back, my sister and our friend will be in London and were taking off to the Scottish Highlands. The end of the month has more family and other trips to look forward to but I won't get too off on a tangent here with all my excitement ready to burst. You can see our full travel schedule for the year here if you're curious!

Last year around this time, I was still figuring out how to make my business work after our move from Boston to London. I wasn't sure how to balance a life of travel with being my own boss so I got into the habit of shutting everything down each time we left and picked it up the first day we were back. It took a toll on me and the potential of this crazy dream of mine. I promised myself this year would be different so one of my goals, when the new year came around, was to be more aware, organized, and prepared during our travel season. While I by no means want to work while we are on trips, I do want to systematize things so they can still keep on keeping on. It feels so much better to have a grasp on all parts of my business (like our journal!) so they can continue to run smoothly whether I'm in my little studio or not. So far so good but this month will be the true test on just how good I've set everything up. With each trip and each year, I know I will learn more about what works and what doesn't but for now, I'm patting myself on the back for getting started. If you have any tips, feel free to leave them in the comments below! I'd love to hear 'em!

Happy May everyone! Wishing you all the best for the month ahead!
