2010 Day Planner: Year of the Bicycle

I have been hunting for a day planner for the upcoming year.

I'm too much of a scribbler for an e-planner [I would have an Outlook or Google calendar if I worked in a real office or had to share it with anyone, but I'm a lone ranger these days].

I wanted something that would fit in my bag easily, that did not have a soft cover [they rip, tear, fall off- you should see my 2009 one and the stapling/taping that has had to occur to keep it together. It's a war victim, a veteran, and its almost ready for a discharge with distinction for good service].

I also wanted to see my full week when I open it to a random page. This criteria has been difficult to manage in the land of Australian day planners [diaries as they call them]. Diary? Am I a 14 year old girl who needs to keep "secrets" or draw hearts around someone's initials?

Last week, I found what I've been looking for. Available in pink or blue from the Swedish style company Kikki-K, this day planner embodies the theme I want for 2010: the year of the bicycle.

Confession? I am 23 and I do not know how to ride a bike. But this year, I am going to learn.

My boyfriend is going to patiently and carefully teach me and once I get good [and I will! I am determined!] we are going to take the bike trail from Pittsburgh to Greensburg and it will be a fantastic.


  1. I have the exact requirements when I look for a planner! Glad you found THE one :)

  2. I couldn't believe how hard it was to find one that fit what I was looking for here! I'm really excited to start using it soon! :)
