  • Rosemarie

    Thank you! You’ve inspired me to *finally* buy a planner and start my own intentions and try to meal plan better. You always spark some creativity that helps me and my family stay on track a little better.

  • Jamie

    Well, I didn’t spend last week being a vegetable on the couch but that’s about all I got done from the list. Ah, well, this is a fresh new start or a week so I intend to

    – Meditate daily (check mark on this morning!)
    – draw up packing lists for me and Forrest for the reunion next week
    – Spend 10 minutes sketching ideas for my next #areyoubookenough book
    – clean those mystery jars out of the fridge
    – pull *everything* out of my closet I haven’t worn in the past year, seasonal or not, and stick it in a box. Set reminder on my phone for 1 month to see if I miss any of it before sending it on to it’s next rewarding home.
    – finally recycle the rest of the car seats and bases that are no longer being used. Even though that makes me a little weepy.

  • Abby

    My intentions this week are a little scattered, since I used my old planner and my new one doesn’t start until AUGUST, so I’m feeling disorganized:

    – yoga
    – laundry
    – hair cut
    – call bank about husband’s missing wallet
    – husband’s suit dry cleaned for interview
    – think of new lunch ideas
    – clean upstairs bathroom

    • Tracy

      I am not starting my new planner until August too and it’s throwing me off. I am finding safety and structure in a clipboard right now. It might help you too!!!

  • Christine

    This week I really, really want to catch up on my 2017 Year-in-Review book. I always wait until December to do it and I feel so rushed. I’d like to do a month a day so that when my summer break is done in a month I’m at least 1/2 done with the damn thing.

  • Cori R.

    Thank you! Seeing your list reminded me I need to make some Dr. appointments before summer ends so I immediately called and now I can cross that off my to do list!

  • Sara

    Do you have an Etsy shop? The link just takes me to the Etsy main page.

  • Stephanie

    I’m so looking forward to your etsy shop! I’ve got some sad empty frames that need some cool prints, it’s actually on MY list of things to do. So I am rooting for ya 🙂
