    Much Love For 2016!


    2015 was fun, very challenging, and actually successful. There were times (a lot of times) I wanted to give up and not try anymore, but I had to keep going. I couldn’t have done it without my faith in God and my friends, who kept me afloat.  I found this quote online and it made me smile! Very true for the people I have in my life.

    Here’s to new beginnings, reaching milestones, kicking major butt, and making our dreams come true in 2016!

    There will be more posts coming in January!

    My Life, Planner Love

    My name is Mel and I am a planner. 

    I don’t know what it is, but there’s nothing more comforting and exhilarating to me than buying a new planner/agenda book. Just adds to my love for stationery, pens, and notebooks.  That’s fine, call me a loser. But I love it.

    Over the years, I’ve collected different types of books to schedule my work load, plan events, and mark down social activities. I’ve used different sizes and formats. I don’t have a particular favorite; just looking for blank spaces to fill things in and use it consistently. Unfortunately, I’m of the mindset that if I don’t write it down, I won’t remember, and it won’t get done! So, why not find something that will work? Read more
