Starting a Bullet Journal - My Bullet Journal Story

Everyone has a bullet journal story. A story about how they found out about bullet journaling, why they started, why they keep using it, and what they plan to do with it in the future. Every person who uses a bullet journal has a story to tell on how they got started, here is mine. Needing A Planner When I first started blogging over on Mommy Thrives I was working 60 hours a week as a waitress and my schedule was insane. I was trying to write new posts for the blog, market that blog, work, raise a kid, and run all my normal errands.READ MORE

Pittsburgh Theme Bullet Journal Cover Page - June 2019 Bullet Journal Layout

It feels good to be back in the bullet journal game. For a while now I have been relying heavily on electronic planning because I’ve been stuck at my computer. Well that is changing. Today I’m showing you my bullet journal setup for June. I’m doing things a little differently this month from what I used to do. Partly because the past few months I’ve been lacking on my bullet journals and partly because my schedule is about to be extremely hectic. Earlier this week our landlord informed us that we have 60 days to move. Being on a month to month lease we haveREAD MORE
April 2019 Cover Page with Umbrella and Rain Drops - April 2019 Bullet Journal Setup

It happens in any hobby, life gets busy and your hobby just slides to the side to wait patiently for you to come back. This is what happened to me with Bullet Journaling for the past couple of months. I wanted to spend time in my journal, I even created a March layout. I just didn’t use it. Partly because I left my journal in my bedroom instead of at my desk. Partly because I was so consumed with work through March that I was using electronic planning with Trello. It’s ok though. Feeling like a complete scattered – mess I created my April spreadREAD MORE
February 2019 Pink and Grey Setup - Bullet Journal Layout in Pink and Grey Stripes

My bullet journal setup for February is a minimalist but colorful setup. In keeping with Valentine’s day I went ahead and used pink as one of my colors. However, I am not a huge Valentine’s Day fan so I paired it with a grey and left hearts completely out of this theme. It’s not that I dislike the holiday – I just don’t celebrate it. If you do that is awesome and I wish you a very happy day filled with joy and love. For being a short month I have a lot going on. My son’s birthday, our anniversary, and of course all theREAD MORE
