Bullet Journal 101

The Bullet Journal Method goes on a Blue Ridge Parkway hike!

We bought a few books while in Asheville last week, which is rare since we don’t like the weight in our suitcases; however, I’ve started carrying an extra smaller suitcase for books, shoes, things we buy, and incidentals that’d make my suitcase over the 50 lb. limit! 

The Bullet Journal Method is one of the books my husband bought at Malaprop’s Books. He’s recently been bitten by the bullet journal bug! I’ve been bullet journaling for a few years now. The beauty of bullet journaling is you can personalize it to fit your life. Ryder Carrol, creator and author of the Bullet Journal Method, says “it will help you go from passenger to pilot of your own life.” It works, and I love it! Oh, another thing…it provides a place for me to get creative with my wide variety of colored pens that I seem to be constantly buying! 

These are some of the things I plan with it: 

Daily activities and appointments

Meal planning


Travel plans

Packing list

Dreams and Goals

Quotes I like 

TBR list

Movies/TV shows I’d like to watch

Medical section on my husband, myself, and my mother (I take her to her doctor appointments)

Daily Gratitude section

QOTD: Do you use a bullet journal? Do you have any additional things you plan with it that I may need to add to mine?

It's been a desire of mine for a long time to create a blog where I share my interests with people who may be interested in the same things. With Careyloves I'm finally making this dream come true!
