I go back and forth year in and year out trying to decide if I should ‘keep up with the times’ and stick to an electronic calendar… or if I should give in to the pretty paper and the writing in ink on a paper calendar. A couple years ago, I used a bright & happy pink Lilly Pulitzer agenda/planner, and then I went completely electronic for the last three years. But I have such a love of pretty paper & handwritten notes! So this month, I took the plunge back into a paper agenda, and I am SO excited. That’s more than you ever wanted to know about the fact that I finally, happily switched back to an actual agenda, but it makes me oh so happy! I know exactly what I need & exactly what to look for in an agenda (I’m very particular), and after comparing a few brands and styles online, I headed to my favorite PaperSource store to compare a few in person. I knew I’d be going with either a Kate Spade agenda or a Lilly Pulitzer agenda, and seeing the two side by side sealed the deal for me! As much as I love neutrals and classic, simple styles, I love color + bright, inspiring design just that much more. And since I loved my Lilly planner so much a few years ago, it wasn’t too hard to select this one! I love the bright colors, designs, and patterns, the layout/format is ideal, the price was great, and the happy stickers are a fabulous bonus. And my hot pink Le Pen is just icing on the cake!
Like I said, this is more than you probably ever wished to hear about my choosing a new agenda, but I am so excited to make the switch back to having an actual paper agenda – I had really been missing it throughout the last several years! It makes me ridiculously giddy.
So, friends, tell me: how do you keep yourself organized? What does your calendar look like?
