Reblogging this article to give inspiration to help my readers be more organized in 2019 (good resolutions for many of you I am sure)
About a month ago (see review of April 2018), one of my friend showed me her bullet journal. I had heard of them and had seen a few ads on Facebook but I had never seen one in real life. She told me that she started hers because she was always doing 100 things at the same time and was doing a bad job of keeping track, thus becoming notoriously unreliable.

Happy new year to all !
So 2018 is over… It has been a bittersweet year. There were joy at home watching both the girls grow, happily breastfeeding Peanut until she was 8 months, decorating our home, traveling, spending 2 weeks with family this summer. There were tough personal moments : losing my grandfather to Alzheimer’s disease, finding a lump in my breast and fearing breast cancer for a whole week.
