Sue Hooley's 2015 Daily Planner

Time goes so fast. I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that it's fall. 

A new year will be here before we know it. 
Are you ready?

I'm not yet, but I will be soon, thanks to the help of 
Sue Hooley's 2015 Daily Planner.

Sue, the creator of this beautiful and easy-to-use planner, is a wife and mother of six. Her experience with motherhood and homemaking is vast and she understands what moms like us look for in a daily planner, space. 

The 2014 Daily Planner featured a glossy cover with an image of a wooden box filled with flowers and a pretty font quoting Proverbs 16:3. A black plastic coil was used for spiral binding. Pages were purple. The planner contained sections for the Year, Month, Week, Tasks, Projects, Info and shopping. Each section began with a reflective quote on subjects like attitude, contentment, and happiness. 

Here's a page from my 2014 planner. . .
It's not too marked up yet, but it's also not November yet. Give me time. 
This page was in the Month section which contains the months at a glance. 
It's my favorite section and the one I use the most. 

Now, though I have been blessed to use the 2014 Daily Planner, it's actually the 2015 Daily Planner that I can't wait to tell you about. 

The 2015 Daily Planner is very similar in look, and almost the same except for a few minor changes:

  1. The 2015 cover  features a beautiful photo of an old wooden garden table invaded by Black-eyed Susan overgrowth. I love the green and yellow in the cover. 
  2. Exodus 33:14 is quoted just under the title.  
  3. Inside, you'll find all your favorite sections from 2014, but the color scheme has switched to olive green and yellow. These colors appeal more to me so I like the change. 
  4. The pages for notes have an image imposed on them which make them a bit fancier in my opinion. They also span the full width of the page which gives even more space for us note takers. 
  5. At the start of each section, you'll find quotes about promises. I like that there is a consistent theme throughout the entire planner. 
  6. Scriptures are quoted in the Week section, just like in the 2014 version. In the 2015 Daily Planner, scriptures are quoted from various books throughout the Bible, not just from Proverbs as in the 2014 edition.
  7. Next year's Daily Planner uses a different font and I'm okay with that. The new font is less formal which makes me feel a bit more comfortable about scrawling my plans throughout.
