pretty planning

There's something refreshing about a brand new calendar for the year. A clean slate, a fresh start. Seeing those little boxes of wide open space just begging to be filled with plans... I'm a big fan of technology (you can witness me hugging my iPad on a daily basis, and I pretty much have a death grip on my iPhone), but there's just always been something NICE about the feel of a pen on paper. Of writing my words instead of typing them. And so, to this day, I still prefer to use a printed calender.

But I'm sick of the stodgy calendar. And yes, there are a lot of decorative ones, too, but sometimes they're just a little too frou-frou for my taste. So this year I've decided to make my own by personalizing it with a few favorite PHOTOS.

And depending on what size/style you prefer, here are a few calendars that you might enjoy, as well:
