My reading tracker is one of my favorite pages in my monthly set-up. As a homeschooling family, reading is a big part of our family culture, and I love having this colorful record of what I'm reading each month, both by myself and with the kids.
I update my reading progress every 5 days throughout the month, and I find a special little joy when it's time to fill in the tracking bars once again... Nerdy, I know.πŸ˜‰

Spending a bit of time this first week of a new year looking back over the highlights of last year. Scrolling through my camera roll, flipping through my journal, I realize how many special moments last year held. 2017 was a big year for our family - the year we purchased property and moved out to the country. With this time spent reminiscing over special moments from the past year, I am filled with hope for what lies ahead in 2018.
What is your biggest highlight from 2017

The full spread for the start of 2018.
This is my fifth year selecting a word that I hope shapes and defines the year ahead. This year my word is delight. What is your word for 2018?

As I am gathering all my thoughts and ideas on gifts together for this holiday, I find myself thinking back to this spread I created last year. It helped track my ideas and purchases, plus gave me an idea of how we were doing with our budget. Notes from last year are helpful now as I am gathering this year's thoughtful, intentional gifts (don't wait too long to order the photo calendars...).

It's that warm and cozy, cup of tea time of the year!

I am trying something new for these last months of the year. For several of the spreads that I use each month, I have decided to combine October, November, and December. Instead of three separate reading logs, goals spreads, and gratitude pages, I am using one spread for each of these to encompass the final three months of the year. My thought is that saving a bit of time here will allow a little time to try a few new spreads and spend a bit of extra time setting up for 2018.

Hello again sweet journaling community, I have missed you. Over the past few months, I have taken a bit of a break from Instagram, and I have scaled back on my journal. We've moved our family to a beautiful piece of property out in the country, and baby #3 has moved to the toddler stage - with all of these changes, I haven't had as much time for journaling. This has given me a chance to really evaluate what is and isn't important to me when it comes to my journal, so that I can make my journal work best for my life right now.

One thing that is a must for me is my reading log. I have just filled in my mid-month update, so I thought I would share a photo. Instead of the monthly log I've used in the past, I have combined Oct.,Nov.&Dec. into one spread. My reading is all over the place right now with reading clubs, challenges, and personal goals I'd like to meet before the end of the year. And I am loving it! Also, no fancy header yet, as function trumps asthetics in this season of life...

We started our spring nature journals today. Every spring the children and I choose an aspect of nature to study and create nature journals to record our observations. I love that the lettering, sketching, and painting practice that I've gained by keeping my bullet journal can be applied to other areas of life like this!

An example of what my weekly spreads are looking like lately. Life has been pretty busy, and this layout seems to be working well for right now. I am having fun experimenting with lettering and doodles. The doodles on this page were inspired by @rainbow.bujo 's beautiful match calendar spread. #bulletjournalweeklylog

Lazy Sunday afternoon = spring garden planning with some hand lettering experimenting mixed in... I'm so glad to have a a spot in my journal to keep this year's garden notes. No more loose sketches and post-its to keep track of!
The lettering is inspired by @handletteredtruth's #floralsandlaurels (though hers is much more crisp and clean!).

Here's a flip-through of last month in my journal.
I always find it so interesting to see what types of spreads other journalers include in a month's worth of pages. What's your favorite spread in your monthly set-up? Or perhaps, what's something new you'd like to try out? I would love the hear your thoughts!

Filling in some of the categories glories on my #modernmrsdarcyreadingchallenge spread. I wanted the flexibility to move the titles around - several of the books could fit more than one category - so I opted for post-it note page markers for now.
I am loving this challenge - it certainly has me reading books I might not otherwise have chosen, and I've enjoyed nearly all of them.
I'd love suggestions for any categories I haven't yet filled in!

March. All the trees and shrubbery blooming in our area inspired my welcome page for this month. Forsythia is my favorite.
I wish I could figure out a way to capture the shine of the #finetec paint in photos. It's really so shimmery in person.

My reading log from last month.
Making good progress on my #52booksin52weeks goal, and checked off a few categories for the #modernmrsdarcyreadingchallenge!

What are you reading this month?

My health tracker from last month. There's just something about filled in pages at the end of the month... Even if I'm not thrilled with the results of what it was tracking, it sure looks nice all filled in. Take-aways: it's hard to track sleep with a teething baby who wakes multiple times at night, I need to drink way more water, and a stomach bug throws everything off... I will try this spread out again in March, maybe with a tweak or two.

Year at a glance. Hard to believe we're already 2 months in... How is your 2017 going so far?

February is almost over... Taking some time to check in with my February goals while there's still a chance to make progress before beginning a new month with new goals.
This year, I have settled on a few key words, my priorities for 2017, like "simplify," "build community," and "nourish." When setting goals for each new month, I turn back to that list & set specific goals that fit in with these key words. I am hoping this new system will shift my goal setting from list-of-task type goals to goals that will create change, cultivate growth, and improve life.

It's birthday season over here. All five of us have birthdays within the next three months. I though I would test out my new finetec paints to add some shimmery accents to this party planning spread for my little girl's princess party. The photo doesn't do it justice - check out my story to see the shine better!

Last week in my journal.
This was my third week using a version of the running list that I first spotted over at @bluelahe. I'm liking it so much I've also adapted the concept for my homeschool planning for this month, typed up into a printable excel spreadsheet that goes into our homeschool binder. Love how experimenting with organizing and planning here in my journal has the potential to transfer into so many other areas of my life!

Before I started journaling back in June, I hardly ever spent time writing by hand. I've always been fascinated by lettering and fonts and words, but never took the time to do anything with it. Now, after writing by hand every day for 8 months, and getting creative with my headers, I am finding my love for hand lettering growing more and more. My sweet husband gave me this slate and chalk pens for Christmas, and it's been fun using the skills I've been developing through journaling to creating temporary pieces of art to decorate our home.
