I always like to use our family Christmas photos on the covers of my life planners. This way, when 2014 comes to an end and I'm about to retire this year's life planner for next, I can see how much things have changed. It's crazy how much changes in a year when you have kids. (And, I mean, next year I'll have two kids on my life planner! Crazy!) Last year I went with the awesome cut out design, but I just couldn't peel my eyes off of the full page photo option this year. I made a good choice. It's gorgeous!
If you've never ordered from Erin Condren before, believe me when I say everything is able to be customized. That's the fun part, sitting down and perfecting your planner in every way! This year, I wanted to create some custom stickers that were a better fit for the current state of our lives (see also: revolve totally around Ethan's social life).
My personal favorite feature of the life planners are the little circle stickers you can create. Sometimes I like to make them relevant (i.e. I'll use Ethan's Halloween costume photo for the upcoming year's Halloween) but sometimes it's just fun to have sweet little photos and memories scattered sporadically to make you smile.
Aside from all the fun you can have with the calendar view, you can also break it down further for those busy weeks. Every single month also comes with a day planner page, too, that breaks things down into morning, day and evening categories for better planning.
And, for the truly unorganized (like myself), the Erin Condren life planners also come with a pocket to store stuff and keep papers neat as well as a zippered pouch. Because, like I began this post saying, Erin Condren is magical and full of goodness, the zippered pouch comes to you filled with surprise extras and goodies, like personalized stickers and notepads.
