(*Attention Deficit…ohhhh, something shiny)
It started with a simple mention in a blog post. My writer friend Ellie Mack casually mentioned that she’d started using a Bullet Journal. Her description of it piqued my interest.

I’d eagerly start each new year with the intent of being most productive; my planner would guide me to getting all my to-do’s, to done. I’d never forget another birthday, meeting, or important event. Of course, I’d have to buy pens with which to color code my entries. Oh, the joy.
It had been quite a while since I’d used a planner longer than a few months at a time. So when I heard Ellie talk the pros of her Bullet Journal I thought it might be a system I could finally keep up with. Didn’t hurt that I watched Ryder Carol’s video. That was the first “something shiny” that got me started.
