I’m a journaling advocate and junkie because it’s a powerful way to unlock your truth, record stories, and find your voice. I constantly encourage loved ones and blog readers to begin a daily journaling practice because it offers gifts that are unique to each individual.
If you are a beginning journaler, a dabbler, or a seasoned writer looking to reboot your writing practice, this class is for you! My goal is to empower you to write in your journal for 20 minutes every day. I do this by offering tips, tools, and resources during this class.
In my early twenties, I was in such a rush that I didn’t notice everyday magic, like the changing of seasons, the incredible colors at sunset, or the rain droplets left behind on leaves after a summer rain. Everyday magic was invisible to me and I wanted to find it again.
Everyday Magic will spark your creative juices and help you get in touch with the joy of taking photos. You will learn about composition, lighting, and I hope you’ll have fun along the way! Everyday Magic is five weeks long and each week we will focus on a theme.

After I read The Desire Map, by Danielle LaPorte, a friend gave me The 2014 Desire Map Day Planner. I used the planner as an organizational tool and diary, which was a fantastic creative combination. However, I experienced one drawback with the 2014 planner. There wasn’t enough space to write my to-do lists in the daily calendar section. The 2015 planner rocks because Danielle improved the design. It reminds me of a super-sized Moleskine (but it’s way better).
After shredding my old journals, in June of 2014, I decided to try a Midori Traveler’s Notebook. The Midori is an organizational system for multiple journals and you can customize it based on your writing needs. The system centers around one leather cover and multiple bands that hold several notebooks in place. It’s a slick system! I’ve used the regular and passport sized notebooks and love both for different reasons.
Goulet Pens carries the regular and passport sized Midori Notebooks.
When I’m outside walking, I take dozens of photographs with my iPhone 6 Plus and my best writing ideas surface. Recently, I’ve been using the dictation feature in my iPhone. When I have an idea on the trail, I open the Evernote app and record my thoughts. When I’m done walking, I edit my draft in Evernote. I can do this on my iPhone or laptop because Evernote syncs across devices. It’s a sweet tool to capture ideas on the go!
