new year organization

Happy New Year y'all!!!

Can't believe it's 2020! I'm excited for a new year and for saying goodbye to the last few years.  This last decade was full of ups and downs, amazing moments and horrible moments.  And while I know this new year and new decade will also have it's fair share of trials, I feel good that I will come to a place of peace within myself and with my life thus far.

Do you choose a word of the year?  I've done that the last couple years and feel like it's a nice way to start the year.  This year I've chosen PEACE as my word.  My emotions have run high the last few years and I've been in a state of chaos and I'm ready to do whatever I can to change that.  I want to intentionally welcome in PEACE that my Lord and Savior can give me.  I want to focus on His PEACE and His timing and plan for my life and accept the lessons I've been learning lately.

A big part of having PEACE in my life is staying organized and prioritizing my tasks.  That includes reminding myself to have quiet time each day and reminding myself that each small accomplishment and every little thing I can mark off my to-do list is a win.  

A few days ago I asked for recommendations on your favorite planners on my Instagram stories and I got some great responses!  Today I wanted to share the most popular responses I received and which planner I decided to order this year and why I chose it.

Ultimately I decided to go with the Plum Paper.  I loved the designs and the layout.  And even though there are lots of other planners that can be customized, I really just loved the custom add-on sheets on the Plum Paper planner.  I'm able to add tracking sheets for my blog posts and campaigns, my Mary Kay business (direct sales pages) and a huge variety of other pages like gratitude, household duties, etc.  I also love the sizes available.

I usually get a planner before the end of the year (oops!) so I am feeling a little unorganized already but I can't wait to get it and get started!  I'll share more with you soon!

Do you use a planner?  What's your favorite?  Thanks for starting another year with me and following along!  I know this will be the best year yet and I'm excited for expanding my blog and my brand!  I'm grateful you're here with me!  Let me know if there's anything specific you'd like to see this year or any brands you'd love me to reach out to so I can start planning it now!
