Thoughts + Words From Our Happy Planner® SQUAD
With two busy, active boys and a husband who travels often and works long hours, the Happy Planner® is the glue that holds this house together. From the monthly desk calendar that serves as our Family Battle Plan, to the weekly lists that help me get stuff done, the Happy Planner® has provided organization, function, and structure to our days. Most importantly, the Happy Planner® helps me keep the ME in Mommy. It provides a constant, weekly reminder to take some time for myself. Planning is my creative outlet, my weekly gift of “me” time, and my chance to take a look at the week ahead and prepare accordingly. Knowing the major things happening in the week ahead allows me to attack my days feeling ready, confident, and empowered.
If it were up to me, I would quietly create pretty things and stay hidden in my craft room none the wiser. However, the Happy Planner® and the Happy Planner® SQUAD have encouraged this quiet, shy mama to step outside her comfort zone multiple times. Engaging with, and getting to know, the Planner Community has been one of the greatest gifts provided by my time on the SQUAD. The endless inspiration, encouragement, and support by SQUAD members, Stephanie, Hannah, and Kayla has been invaluable.
As I look back on the year, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the opportunity to be a part of such a talented, inspiring SQUAD. The generosity of Stephanie, Hannah, and Kayla in their time, support, and product is unparalleled. I can vividly remember the day I started IG as a chance to engage with other humans as I stayed at home with two young toddlers. I had NO IDEA then that pretty paper, planners, and stickers would bring so much magic, opportunity, and love into my life. I really feel as though my future is truly in my hands. Whatever I decide I want to do, I know I can. Setting goals, chasing them, and making them a reality is no longer intimidating or scary. I have the lists, stickers, and planner pages
to help me along the way. The Happy Planner® is so much more than just a planner.
