Plan the Planner: Introducing the Theme – A Christmas Story

December Here Already?!? It’s nearly December and almost the conclusion of 2017. The end of the year always makes me reminisce and this is time is no different. 2017 has been extremely eventful. I had my 3rd (and most likely last) baby in February, just after we were getting back on our feet from my husband being out of work for 5 months in 2016. My parents spent several weeks going between my house and my sister’s house due to the baby, weddings, missions, etc. They managed to catch a few of my nephew’s sporting events too. Summer was a […]

Hello December! A Christmas Story Theme

December Plans Begin! Hello December! It’s knocking on the door. Do you have your decorations up? We don’t put them up until after Thanksgiving – and take them down the 1st Saturday(ish) after – rarely, if ever, are they up after New Years. Some years my husband ventures to the roof to put up Christmas lights on our house. And other years, the feeling of dread for this task is too great. Last year we didn’t put up the lights on our house. It devastated my kids. They were certain that Santa would skip over our house. He kind of […]

November Title Page | Simple black and white Hello November with elegant handlettering text and aspens

Planning for November Starts…Yesterday – November Title Page

Hello November Welcome Page An understated title page heading into a very busy period of time. My best tip for the season is to simplify. Simplify your planning, simplify your tasks each day so to enjoy the season. Simplify everything you can. Remove the fluff, remove all the extras because there are a lot of things to do, see, bake, care for etc that will complicate your life. Simplify everything else so when these extra things creep up into your life, you are not completely overwhelmed. Unlike October or September, I wanted a calming and simplified November’s title page. Serenity, Peace & […]

Hello October – Smells Like Fresh Baked Apple Pie – Monthly Welcome Page

Hello, October. You smell like fall. You smell like freshly baked apple pie. If you don’t like apple pie, no worries, I’ll make apple crisp – you like that right? I’ll make extra topping. You sound like the leaves crunching under my feet and the cool, crisp fall nights perfect for stargazing near a fire as it crackles into the night and then slowly dies to embers glowing in the moonlight. Oh Hello, October. Hello, October. You taste like pumpkin spice. You feel like the cozy socks I’m always tempted to wear and the heat seeping through the mug of […]

September Set Up

September is here! Ok, well almost. My September set up is here!   Hello, September. How I’ve missed you. Fall is a time that gives me the…well warm fuzzies. Even though September is not yet full-on fall, there is a certain deliciousness that comes with the crisp nights and cooling weather, the warm hues all over the tree tops as the autumn colors dot the horizon. The reds, oranges, yellows, soft browns, and PURPLE! Purple is a fall color I swear. Apple strudel is definitely on the menu. I don’t care if I have to eat the entire pan by myself […]
