September Bullet Journal

Wow! We already made it to September! Twenty twenty-one has been flying by for me and I always wish I could have more time. And one of the biggest things I wish I had more time for is reading! I absolutely adore reading books and I feel like I haven't had enough time to dedicate to all those unread books on my shelf. So I decided to dedicate my September spread to be all about books! Hopefully the constant reminder will help me get into the reading spirit Continue Reading →

[EXTRA] August Bullet Journal

I'm back! Sort of! Hopefully! July ended up being an absolutely crazy month for me with a lot of surprises. And, honestly, some scary situations. I have never been in a surgery room as a patient before - and it made me nervous. So in that vain, I decided to model August after the stars and the dreams so often attached to them. The stars feel so beautiful especially in the summer although the humid heat of Cleveland can make outside a bit uncomfortable. Continue Reading →

[EXTRA] July Bullet Journal

I know that July is often associated with fireworks due to the countless displays that appear all over the United States. But I like to think that July is truly about Freedom. And nothing makes me feel like I'm free than being able to see the sky and the clouds. Sometimes I wish I could be weightless and experience the movement of the wind. Continue Reading →

[EXTRA] June Bullet Journal

It's Pride Month! So what better way to celebrate then by making my journal completely covered in Rainbows? This is a time where we honor 1969 Stonewall uprising in Manhattan, as well as recognize the impact that LGBTQ individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally! I love using the rainbow and I decided to a watercolor effect to make it a vibrant and fun journal. Continue Reading →

[EXTRA] May Bullet Journal

It's time for the May Showers! And it really has been a blooming may already as the entire front yard is full of dandelions. It's a radiant yellow. I forgot how I'm not a fan of the eighty degree swings we get here in Ohio. Never a dull moment with the weather. I swear, we experience 4 seasons over the course of 4 days. But that's enough kvetching about the weather. Let's instead look at the lovely flowers that inspired this months bullet journal. Continue Reading →

April Bullet Journal

Everyone know the saying that "April showers bring May Flowers". Well, I have to admit that is especially true in the weather temperamental city of Cleveland. And I'll be honest, I'm still half expecting it to snow again. But I thought why not base this months bullet journal on the rain? After all, it's a staple of the month! Continue Reading →

December Bullet Journal

The winter wonderland has arrived! December is one of my favorite times of year, there is a majesty to the weather and a cheer in the air. Overnight the world outside my home became covered in a blanket of snow. The rain from before the snow created a layer of ice that caused the snow to stick to everything – the trees, the roads, and even the windows. It’s the perfect weather to snuggle under a blanket and enjoy and warm cup of hot chocolate. And, it’s also time for a new month in my bullet journal! I use bullet journals to keep track of my life. I’ve been told that I am a put together person, but the secret is I write everything down before I forget about it. And that’s why using a bullet journal has been a lifesaver for me.
