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

January 14, 2018 photo-a-day challenge: Happy

When kids are happy, the sparkle in their eyes and sounds of laughter bring joy to those around them.

Are you serious? Baby chicks poop?
Sister gave him flowers after his first hip-hop recital and he was very moved and happy. Feeling proud and grown up here.
