Yup, it’s true! I’m actually trying out a bullet journal as my planner. I started with a Filofax, never thought I’d try a Traveler’s Notebook, but loved it, and now I am venturing into the world of bullet journaling.
While my Traveler’s notebooks will always be a part of my life documenting process, they are no longer a part of my daily planning. I thought about using one of my leather notebooks as a bullet journal, like many other planner addicts are doing, but I thought I would use a traditional notebook to start with.
So far, I am absolutely loving it! I’m keeping my layouts very basic and only using black micron pens. The beautiful yellow Leuchtturm 1917 that I’m using is light and durable. The notebook lies flat perfectly, and I chose the grid pattern over the traditional dot grid. I have a hard time writing in a straight line and I can be a bit OCD, the the lines help me keep my layouts neat and clean.
Check out what I have so far, and stay tuned for any updates or changes to my planning system!
I purchased my notebook from the Leuchtturm store Amazon. They have so many beautiful colors!
Note sure if I’ll refer to the index much, but better to be safe than sorry!
Year at a Glance
I know my future log will play a huge roll in my business. Mostly because my brides book me a year to 6 months in advance.

Monthly Bill Tracker and Mood/Habit Tracker
I’ve decided to try this vertical Weekly layout, so that I have room for appointments and my to do lists. I also included a mini tracker for some of the things I want to check off daily.
