July Optimism & New Planners in the shop!

Well, would you look at that calendar. June 30th is here. How can that be? How can HALF a year be behind us already?! Where has the time gone?

Nevertheless, I’m very optimistic about the coming weeks!

> Today is Day 365 in my Instagram Project 365. I’m so thrilled to have made it a whole year and I’m planning to keep shooting as much as I can, but probably won’t stamp the date on my photos anymore. Next project has to be printing all those little square shots from the year to get them into an album! Then maybe I’ll hit the 5DmkII or 1V film camera again.

> Independence Day is THIS WEEK!! I love the 4th of July – such delicious food, warm air, gorgeous fireworks (though the dogs aren’t fans), and summer fun. I think we’ll even get a kiddie pool for the dogs and maybe a slip ‘n’ slide for the adults…

> Speaking of the 4th of July…NATE comes home for the weekend!! We’ve made it through the month of June and have just a few months left. The month of July is going to be a huge month for us as we get our office assignment towards the end. EEK!! I’ll have a very special reveal as soon as we share the news with all our family members. It seems like we’re finding out the gender of a non-existent baby…and it’s VERY exciting – ha!

> I’m really excited to start my Pure Barre month next week. I’ve hit a weight within 10 pounds of my ultimate goal and that feels awesome. I really feel like Pure Barre will get me there.

All this talk about dates and calendars and weeks, oh my, brings me right into some exciting news about new printables in the Kate & Trudy shop on Etsy!!

You can now purchase (and print immediately) the half page planner monthly & weekly pages and be all set through December 31, 2015! HOORAY!

There are two styles to choose from and all dates start on Mondays. Choose between a “simple” font and “handwritten” font version. The “simple” font is the same as last year’s version.

The most super awesome amazing news I have to share is that this year I was able to format my designs to easily and seamlessly offer custom dates on the monthly calendars! You can see in the “U.S. Holiday” version that I’ve added cute little dates to denote fun holidays like the 4th of July! It doesn’t end there, because I can very easily add birthdays, other holidays, anniversaries, etc.!

Oh, it doesn’t stop there. Custom colors are also available!

Send me a convo on Etsy if you’re interested in either or both customizations and we’ll setup a custom listing.

I hope your July is as exciting and fun as you hope! For all of my readers based in the U.S., happy Independence week!
