Planning the New Year.


Happy New Year friends. I’m getting settled into this energy of 2019 and preparing myself for great things. It’s really all about that preparation. I’m the kind of person that really enjoys having a planner. Making little lists and checking things off….oh baby. So my planner for 2019 is the Simple Elephant.

I’ve never used this brand before, but it was recommended by this Youtuber I like so here we are. I like that it’s small enough to not be a big deal when you want to take it with you but it still has everything you need on the inside. It is very simple, as far as decoration and color. If you like to customize the vibes on each page (adding doodles and stickers, like me), then it may work for you. Or if you don’t care much about the frills, this would be great too. I’m liking it so far.

It has a few cool sections where you can really get intentional about what you want for the new year. It has a section for a vision board, a mindmap, your top 5 goals for the year, affirmations, and gratitude. I took some time at the end of 2018 to start brainstorming my goals and being intentional about what it will take to make those things happen. Those sections really helped with that.

What are some ways that you organize your life and get shit done? What planner should I consider for next year?

My husband and I bought our first house on May 18, the same day I had my baby girl Josephine. To celebrate, we had a housewarming shindig at the end of September. Lots of family and friends, good food, and lots and lots of cake (foreal, that cake was big as hell). I’m telling you, it takes A LOT of work to get a house together after a big move. Especially when you’re working with two kids under two and are an intern in graduate school.

I was running around like a whole crazy person trying to make this housewarming party pop off right. Not to mention, I had been studying for my comprehensive counseling exam, which was the day before the party. Timing be so petty. See I needed to pass that exam in order to graduate from my program in the Spring. Not gonna front, I was hella worried, but I took the test and passed. So it was really about to be party time after that.
