Happy New Year, lovelies! I am so excited for 2014 – I’m getting married to the man of my dreams this year, and I cannot wait. With every new year, I get to shop for one of my favorite things – a new planner. Yes, I know I could keep all my meetings, dates and other important info on my iPhone, but I am old-school. I like a paper calendar that I can flip the pages in and write in with a real pen – somehow, having something tangible that I can hold, feels more organized to me. We’re a dying breed those of us that love the paper calendars. This year, I found my new favorite yearly planner OF ALL TIME. Before this Emily Ley planner came along, I was a Moleskine calendar devotee, but Emily Ley just blew all of that out of the water with her colorful, cheerful, oh-so-pretty, beautifully organized calendar.
It’s big, and spiral bound, and there is room for To-Do Lists and notes, a pocket in the front for stray papers, verses and inspirational quotes on most pages, even a spot for meal planning – something I am determined to get better about this year. And there are tabs – non flimsy, bright ones that make flipping to future months super easy. Truth be told, I also ordered her wedding planner. I couldn’t help myself – her planners are just too pretty.
I am in love with just everything about them. You should get one if you’re one of those non-digital calendar keepers, too.
So, how many of you keep written paper calendars these days?
