At the end of 2015, I found that I was constantly forgetting things. I was a working mom and wife of a graduate student. We had two beautiful children- a brand new baby and a two year old. With all that was going on, I could not remember appointments. I knew that I couldn't just blame it all on "mom … read more

My planner has become a journal

It was love at first sight

Posted by Jacquie Erickson on 9th Jan 2019

After I had my first baby, I struggled with horrible postpartum depression and anxiety. I'd waited my whole life to be a Mom and I wasn't feeling that bliss so many women were posting about on social media. I just felt numb.

I treasure each year of my planner

​The Leafy Tree-Top Planner and I

Posted by Angela Paulsen on 9th Jan 2019

I didn’t think we’d get along, the planner and I. Amy kept recommending it and ads kept trying to introduce us to each other. But the planner was, well, classy and organized and pretty and I didn’t think I was that type of mom. She was what everyone else did and I’m a two-year-old at heart and do th … read more

A sigh of relief

Posted by Jennifer Loveland on 9th Jan 2019

​My Life Bank

Posted by Stacy Wells on 8th Jan 2019

I am a firm believer in the concept of a "life bank", a bank filled with coins that represent the days of our life. Every morning I visualize withdrawing a coin from my bank, never knowing when the bank will be empty, and my life on earth done. The coins value is based on how well I spend it, whethe … read more

A life-changing, wonderful, and gorgeous planner

Posted by Vienna Kagak on 8th Jan 2019

Before this planner I would go and find printables for all of my family’s important information, but it always came in 8x11”, which wasn’t very portable. I tried using a 7x9” planner, but never could get all my information in one spot. I spent so much time and money on decorating, and … read more
