They can give you some peace of mind in seeing upcoming plans in one place. Personally, I found that when my planner is properly utilized, I do a better job of prioritizing my health, setting boundaries and becoming more organized in other aspects of my life too. So, as part of my new adulting series, I'm sharing tips to make the most out of your 2020 planner, and ultimately your new year.

Before we left for Illinois, Will and I had Christmas with my family. Then, we drove out to Illinois for time with Will's family. It was great to get out of the city and enjoy a slower pace of life. We had lots of family time and even enjoyed some four-wheeling! I also did a lot of reflecting on the past decade and the New Year and decade to come. Since this decade is quickly coming to an end, I thought it would be worthwhile to share highlights of the decade and the honest ups and downs that came with it.
