I had been struggling with what would be the right post since the Newtown tragedy…and in truth there really isn’t one. My dear friend Emily Ley shot me an email last night offering a giveaway of my favorite products, her Simplified Planner! I believe a giveaway is the perfect way to return to posting.
List making is an obsession and I’m crazy over keeping my little family’s activities and appointments well organized. I’m in LOVE with my Simplified Planner because I have just one place where I can squirrel away all my lists. Emily has done a stellar job at creating a resource to keep your life organized so you can focus your precious time on what matters. To me…my family and friends are what matter.
Sometimes I pile too much on my plate. I try and juggle multiple projects for the blog in an attempt to free up my time in the future. What happens is that I undertake all the projects at once…writing the content for all of them, taking pictures for them and then creating specific images for each post in Illustrator. I found myself snapping these pictures while Lily was coloring. Applying hot glue while she biked around our kitchen island. I was making life more chaotic and not being in the moment with Lily. Last week I opened my planner and moved around some to do’s (even erased a few) and freed up more time to focus more on the coloring and bike moments….because those moments are what matter.
So today a marvelous giveaway my friends!! One lucky reader will be an owner of an Emily Ley Simplified Planner! With this tool you will be able to plan out your family’s meals in advance, make sure that dates for Brady’s baseball game and Lily’s ballet recital are listed, note scheduled doctor appointments, reminders for playgroup and small notes to inspire you or just make you smile. This will help keep your life streamlined so you can dedicate your life to what matters.
What is in the giveaway???? A Simplified Starter Kit including: 1 signature binder in warm pink, 1 journal set, 1 monthly calendar set (18 undated months) and 1 set of 6 dividers! That’s right folks you get her gorgeous warm pink signature binder with a few of her essentials to fill it. If you’re already an owner of this awesome product I’m sure you know someone who would go bananas if they had one! This would be the best gift ever 😉
So how do you win it? Hop on over to Facebook and “like” Lily & Bliss or follow me on Twitter (@lilyandbliss), Instagram (@lilyandbliss) or Pinterest. Then come back and tell Emily and me what matters most to you. Sometimes in times full of sorrow reading about what matters to others can be inspiring and encouraging.
So follow via the avenues listed above and come back and leave a comment (if you don’t leave a comment I can’t pick you as a winner!). On Friday at 10 am a lucky winner will be announced! Good Luck!
