Mommy Review Monday: Full Focus Planner

I have mentioned in a few of my previous posts that I use the Full Focus Planner.  I happened upon this wonderful thing on one of the many podcasts that I listen to.  It’s been wonderful for me. Here’s what I like about it: It’s black and non-discrete.  There’s a lot of flashy journals outContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Full Focus Planner”

(Not So) Tall Tale Tuesday: Bringing Joy in the Midst of Sorrow
