the year’s end is a thrilling time for planner girls. we select our 2018 planner lineup. we set up our dashboards and dividers just how we want them. we set goals, schedules, and routines. we can’t wait to dive in to the new year!

february’s Puppy Love box was one of my favorite subscription boxes to put together! we included date night planner stickers from two different etsy shops. as an admitted workaholic, i wanted to encourage all you fellow #bossbabes to stay fun, affectionate, and romantic in a relationship no matter how hard you hustle on the daily!
