It sort of surprises me, but makes me very happy at the same time, how I have kept up with the Memory Planner this year.

It’s this little creative space that keeps my little moments and random acts of writing as well as just the right amount of photos to help keep track of the blur.

Heidi always provides a free and fabulous printables. Did I say free? I mean really…why wouldn't I print those out and use them on these pages?

One suggestion I have is to utilize the 3x4 cards as spaces for hidden journaling. Make a little fold over card and attach to the page and add your thoughts in there you may not want everyone to look at. A flair found in my stash was perfect to keep this one closed.

Another idea is to make the pages thematic. Since May is the month of mothers these pages are themed around just that.  My list this month is of my joys. Just little gifts I discover throughout my day. So far it has been things like my daughters museum exhibit at school. My toddler singing his heart out. Giggles heard throughout the house. Us all being in one room at the same time (such a rare thing). All these little joys add up to my larger joy of being these kids' mom and being reminded in the really tough times.

As I have shared here already, one of my year's goal is to add a family photo every month to my planner. And while I am still on track making sure to have taken those photos every month, I decided to add one with me and just my girls this time. I don't know...it just seemed fitting.

Add photos of your kids right now. Not posed. Not planned. Just snap photos of them in their moment. I collaged all mine in photoshop elements and made them to fit a 3x4 space.

The blur in my life is more blurry than ever. I am everyday so thankful for this planner. To write down daily happenings, big and small. A place to add #onelittlethingeveryday. It just sort of makes me giddy.

This is how I am celebrating May by way of the Memory Planner. So, how are you celebrating with your planner?
