I can’t have enough planners – ever

Have you noticed all the brightly colored, creative-formatted, and happy-inducing academic planners in stores these days?? Pretty papers are my weakness: the texture, colors, and weight of each page between my fingers. I’m a paper nerd!

I bought a floral planner last year: it reminded me of the upcoming autumn season. I must’ve been in a mellow, winter-y state of mind when I chose that particular one.

Fast forward to this year, and I went the opposite direction. Bright and tropical. Ellis, my 6 year old daughter, said she’d get me a planner for my birthday, so she did the choosing. She immediately gravitated towards the one with the golden elastic band, smaller size, and bright prints. I liked it too.

I might have chosen a bigger one for practical purposes though- easier to find.

Whichever format you use, whether digital, a paper towel, the back of your hand, or memory, hope that this fall semester brings you creativity, happiness, and a heart of contentment!!

Bright and tropical – True to Lily Pulitzer style

Writing and daydreaming have always been two of my favorite things to do. I've been an avid journal writer since junior high school. It was a way for me to survive the complex world of being a Korean-American female straddling two cultures. Journal writing continued through graduate school, but that luxury is now replaced with multitasking to raise and homeschool two young kids. As the self-proclaimed domestic C.E.O. of our home, personal reflection occurs mostly in my subconscious dreams, during solo grocery shopping runs, or when my husband Chris takes the kids to Costco for an afternoon trip.
