Fresh Starts and Reintroductions

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

I don't really need an excuse to buy a new planner, but I sure do love one. It's a Tuesday? Time for a new planner. The start of a new month? There's your chance. A a trip to Michael's to "just look around"? I dare you to try to leave without a new planner.

The start of Spring is just another one of those perfect excuses, and this year it just so happened to fall on a Monday which I took as the universe telling me it was time for a fresh start. I hopped on over to Michael's and purchased one of these Happy Planners and had the most productive day ever best time filling my new planner with all of the things that will lead me to more productive days in the future.

I like to keep things real around here and so now that I've gone on a two paragraph rant about my love for planners, I figured I could use the rest of this post to share a few other things about myself as a bit of a reintroduction.

So hi, I'm Abbey.

I am an incredible over-planner. Hence the entire point of this post. I'd rather have 17 planners that all say the same thing than risk possibly not being prepared for something.

I'm married to my best friend. His name is Daniel. He's an EMT, a full time student, and in the Army reserves. We've been married for four years this month and we've NEVER had a "normal" schedule. His goofy-ness balances out my seriousness and we make a really great team.

We're expecting our first baby in May. A little girl, that we've decided to name Kensington Grace. We're incredibly excited, nervous and at times overwhelmed. We can't wait for our newest little adventure to arrive.

My family runs a book publishing company. And I owe my love of reading to my parents.

I believe in fresh starts. On any day, at any time. I'm a firm believer that it's never too late to start new.

My absolute favorite movies are Disney classics. I just don't think I could ever stop loving them.

I absolutely love the holidays. My favorites include Christmas, Halloween and July 4th (in that order). I also like birthdays and anything else that gives me a reason to celebrate.

My diet could consist entirely of pasta, bread, and sushi and I'd be content to live out my life. Hello, carbs. And fish. I love you.

I'm generally a shy person. But this blog gives me the perfect excuse to meet new friends, and to share a little piece of myself that other people don't usually get to see.

So won't you introduce yourself? I'd love to come stop by your blog. 


  1. I adore that planner it's so cute! I love having my planner with me and writing in it any chance that I get! Owning a publishing company sounds so great, what a lovely way to get into reading. I hope you have a wonderful week! xx

    Sending light & love your way,
    My Lovelier Days

    1. I have to carry my planner around everywhere or I feel like I'm missing something! The Happy Planner is one of the best ones I've used so far :)

  2. I really need to get a new planner, I just haven't found one I really like yet.

    1. The Happy Planner is one of my favorites! You should give one a try!
