Hey planner girl! I see you there, struggling to keep all of the facets of your life running smoothly. It’s not always easy to do, am I right?! This is definitely something I struggle with and even though I use a paper planner (usually more than one), I still find myself getting frazzled and stressed at times. If this is something you have experienced, then keep reading, because today I am going to share a few planner tips that I have learned, that help me to maintain a more organized life.
Hey Y’all, I’m back!
I know it has been a hot minute since my last post, but if you have been following me on Instagram, then you know I was traveling around Europe with my husband. We have been back in the U.S. for a little over a week now and I have been itching to get a post out. This is something that was on my mind, during the entire trip, and even more so since I arrived back home. I have been day dreaming about all that I have seen and done over the past three years and how those experiences have shaped my way of thinking.
Today, I wanted to share some of what I have learned from traveling the world.
I’m back, today, with a really fun post! If you have read some of my previous posts or seen me mention it on Instagram, then you know that I am about to head out on a big trip to England, France, and Ireland, for two weeks. We are getting SO excited! As a planner girl, you know I have to be fully prepared for anything, and big trips like this are no exception. We have been counting down the days and I needed a way to plan, but also a fun way to pass the time as we have been anxiously waiting. That’s why I have been using my bullet journal a lot more, recently. It’s a creative outlet, vision board, blog planner, goal keeper, and an all-around enjoyable time. Now, I am also adding travel journal/planner to that list!
I am going to be sharing my five favorite spreads that I have done, leading up to this trip. Maybe, they will inspire you to create your own!
Hey planner people! It has been awhile since I shared an update on my planning setup and y’all know it has changed up since my post, in February, right? Of course! Actually, I have been using a Pocket Filofax since late in March. I told myself that if I could stick it out with a pocket, till our trip to the U.K. (and France!) in June, that I could buy more pocket-sized planners on our trip. The thought of seeing all of the shelves full of Filofaxes still makes me happy! I can’t wait! As of now, I have been in this setup for two months and it has worked fabulously.
Awhile back, I posted about the pros and cons of Personal and Pocket size. That was when I was really trying to decide which I liked more. It’s hard to give up the paper real estate of a Personal size planner, but portability and functionality won out and I picked the Pocket!Read More
Hey y’all! I hope May has been treating you well so far. We have had a lot of rain recently, but the sun has finally decided to come out on one of my days off, so I’m feeling good! I just checked my calendar and I have only 28 days until we leave for our big anniversary trip. The excitement is getting real and since I have travel and adventure on my mind, I also have organizing and packing lists on my mind. That leads me to today’s post. I’m going to be giving you five of my tips for packing light.
We are definitely guilty of overpacking. Me, especially. I admit it. I don’t like to leave home without everything I could even possibly need. However, after a few out of country trips, we have decided it’s time to cut waaaay back. This time around we are doing a carryon and personal item, ONLY. It’s scary, y’all. It’s real scary, but I think I can do it. I have been brainstorming how I am going to make it work and in doing so, I came up with these five tips.
May has arrived and we are finally seeing some higher temps here in middle Tennessee! Grass is growing and flowers are starting to bloom and my allergies are acting up a long with it. May brings more than just allergies, though. It brings the day we celebrate the women that brought us into this world. Mother’s Day! As I am writing this, you only have a little over a week left to grab a Mother’s Day gift for the special ladies in your life, so I am giving you a list of options that will ship quickly.
And why don’t you go ahead and treat yourself, while your at it? 😉
I know I’m running a little late, but I wanted to share a something for infertility awareness week. I know there are many women struggling in the same journey right now and I also know it helps to feel less alone.
Flip the Script
This year’s theme is “Flip the Script” and it’s all about changing the conversation.
This time last year, I couldn’t even tell you when “Infertility Awareness Week” was. I was still at the beginning of trying to conceive. Still in the “have fun trying…wink wink, nudge nudge” stage. No one tells me to have fun trying anymore. Once you start having to deal with needles, ultrasounds, and hormone altering medications, it kinda takes the fun right out of it.
I am 1 in 8.
I’ve never liked statistics. I certainly don’t like the fact that I am one.
When you are considered “infertile” though, everything is about statistics. Success rates and chance. It’s like every time you pop a pill or pee on a stick, you are rolling the dice and I am just not good at gambling.
Statistics are so clinical. They lack feeling and emotions.
But if you see the faces of those affected. If you hear them speak or read their words, then you may feel a twinge or something. Then, you may understand the impact of it.
So, this Infertility Awareness Week, let’s put faces on the statistics. Do not be ashamed of something that you can’t control. Let’s join the #FlipTheScript movement.
There should be more support and less stigma.
Proclaim it loudly.
I struggle with infertility, but infertility doesn’t own me and it never will.
Until next time!
Hey y’all! There is only one week left in April and you know what that means…It’s gonna be May! It also means that I need to update you on what is currently on my radar. If you haven’t seen one of these posts before, this is basically where I tell you what I have been up to over the last month and what I have been enjoying.
Hey y’all! Today, I’m excited to share more about our trip to Taiwan! Previously, I told you all about our tour of Taipei 101. Well, that was just the beginning! During our two week stay, we had the opportunity to visit two of Taiwan’s nine national parks: Kenting and Yangmingshan.
Let me just go ahead and warn you, this is going to be super photo heavy, but totally worth it!
Two months ago I posted about my first experience going to a fertility clinic with my husband. It was a little scary for me to talk about in such an open space where everyone can see it, but I knew I wanted to share, in hopes that I could help ease the fears of women that are going through the same journey. That is why I am back at it again. Today I’m going to share what my first IUI experience was like.
