I N S P I R E D  Y E A R | Planner Review & Giveaway
*Disclaimer: I received this planner from One Love Paper Co in exchange for an honest review, all opinions are my own.
I wasn’t one for planners until the beginning of last year, after our youngest Jaxson was born. Jaxson was in and out of the hospital, I was trying to work full-time at a Chiropractic office, shuffling the kids to daycare, etc. I was overwhelmed and needed something to keep my hectic life together… cue planner! Some may use their cellphones/smartphones to keep up with their day to day lives but nothing is more satisfying then writing down your appointments, goals, and crossing them off one-by-one.

I was just using a basic planner I purchased from Target this past year, but was longing for a new and improved planner… thus my search began! That is when I came across One Love Paper Planner.
A B O U T  O N E  L O V E  P A P E R:
In 2013 Kathy, a mother of three, was facing a challenge of balancing work and life. Kathy then decided to help others by providing a path to go after their dreams and ambitions.
In 2015, Kathy designed her first Inspired Year Planner with elegant covers and meaningful quotes that she had collected over the years. The planner was such a hit that she decided to take a gamble and launched her planners to a larger audience using Kickstarter.
F I N D  T I M E  F O R  Y O U R S E L F:
Being a mother of two boys with one with special needs, a full-time student, a military spouse, stay at home mom (turned entrepreneur) and blogger… you really don’t have a lot of time for yourself. It is vital for you and for your family to find time for YOU. You need to take care of YOURSELF too, that is not even a little bit selfish. I find that setting a little time for myself, whether it’s 15 minutes or 30 minutes, is beneficial.
I love to work out and do yoga but have with our recent move and adjusting to life here in North Carolina I have not been consistent. With this planner I can plan out my hourly tasks and include yoga or weightlifting into my schedule—for MY time to take care of myself.
S E T  G O A L S:
What I love about this planner is that it allows you to sit down and take time to look over your goals and what you want to accomplish within the year. The planner breaks down into four quarters so that you can assess your goals throughout the year. Finding time for yourself and for your goals are very important. Sometimes as mothers we get lost with taking care of our children, I always put their needs before my own. That is why I LOVE this planner and will continue to use and recommend it.
What is included in the planner:
Goal-Setting Inspiration:
-10 pages of goal setting
-Daily to-do lists
-Dreams and heart-centered goal setting pages
-Year-in-review prompts
Monthly + Weekly Calenders:
Inspirational quotes
-Hourly scheduler
-Extra notes pages
-Tabbed months
-Lies flat
Outstanding Quality:
-Bright and warm cover and pages
-Reinforced laminated monthly tabs
-Gold wired binding
-High quality, ultra-white paper

And So, the Adventure Begins…
I chose the Adventure Begins cover because it really spoke to me. This life of being a Special Needs mom to a DYRK1A Warrior is definitely an adventure. With his rare chromosome disorder, it is hard to see what the future may hold for him–not every child with this condition will have all of the same features or symptoms.
We are currently establishing new specialty doctors and therapists and this planner will definitely help me keep track of all of his appointments, his brother’s sports, my goals, my daily tasks, etc. It’ll help me sit down and take time to find time for ME.
I’ve teamed up with One Love Paper Co to give one lucky winner a FREE copy of the Inspired Year Planner, please visit Instagram for more information!

    I don't know what I would do without my planner! I already have mine started for 2019.

    My mom always has to have a paper planner, too. I did last year but started using my CoSchedule editorial calendar for my blog and the apple calendar for everything else. The only advantage I have found with the online calendar is my husband syncs to it also so we both know what each other has going on. Otherwise, I like the paper planner, too.

    I just bought an inkwell planner and I love it. It's hard though because I want to fill it out now… but need to wait until January. When I was shopping I was totally debating between this brand and the one I got. It's so hard to choose sometimes.

    I love planners to help keep me organized. Every 12 to 16 months I always get a new compact planner for my handbag and a larger notebook sized planner to keep up with my work. I prefer ones like you mentioned with inspirational quotes.
