Who loves to get interactive?  One of my goals this year was to make everything I do here more user-friendly and bring it full-circle so that the ‘Your Personal Assistant‘ reminders and prompts are easy-peasy! Now we can make it happen together! Join me on Instagram to do so!


Moments That Matter ~ Daily Tips

1. If you’re on Instagram, let’s get clicky with my Moments that Matter Photo Challenge where you can capture moments that matter from your camera phone. For more details, click here!

I have found it’s a great way to use the camera on my phone as a grateful journal while I’m also trying to put some balance into my crazy life.  I’ve really thought things out and added a conversation to have with your kids, a memory to make with your man, as well as organizational and fun prompts.  I’m so excited to play on Instagram with you!

16. Let’s start the month off right and make a list of the things that are causing you added stress. Make a list of the big ones as well as the little ones. Is something in the house that’s broken, is there an insurance issue you need to take care of, do you need an extra trash can upstairs to help keep things tidy?

17. If you’re wanting to be more organized then print off the Executive Homemaker binder where you can keep track of everything in one place as well as printable worksheets to help keep you organized and on task. I put a lot of work My Life Story Planner.  It’s a great way to organize your memories and papers into one place.  This Adorable Free 2017 Printable Calendar is a must have, too! {{wink}} Moving?
