  1. The Planner looks lovely and I have always found them extremely useful as well as lovely to look at. I will have to watch out for the discount codes and order mine. I do miss having my boys in there though. It didn't feel right submitting photos once Flynn had joined Eric at the Bridge.

  5. So cute! I'm totally a planner person too. I'd be tempted to get this one but I'm more of a dog person (lol) and I jumped the gun and already bought my 2019 planner months ago. I hope this one sells lots of copies though! It looks awesome.

  7. I bet the planner is spectacular. It's too bad Mama doesn't take many photos of us any more or we could be in there... (swishes tail and stomps off).

  26. I love Christmas Eve, I think because it reminds me of all the anticipation of Christmas as a kid. But it's also a peaceful and relaxing time for me.

  27. I bet you had a hard time deciding which pictures of Brûlée and Truffle you wanted to put in the calendar, 'cause they are always so-o photogenic. I can't wait flip through the catlendar pages with my paw and see you and other furr-iends on the pages! -Valentine (& Mom) of Noir Kitty Mews

  28. Look at all those beautiful pics of Truffle and Brulee in the planner! I personally love a hard copy planner. I always used one. Now that I have gone digital, it's just not the same. I've actually been thinking about going back to a hand-held planner!

  29. Awwww, I'm sad that, as a Canadian, I am unable to enter your draw. It looks beautiful and would be fun to see all the familiar furries throughout the year.

  32. I need this planner. Christmas Day is my favorite day of the year.

  33. I don't really have a favorite day. Growing up, holidays usually led to family strife so I don't really have an attachment to those holidays. Especially with my Mom being gone and my brother having his own family.

  34. You always have the cutest offers and this weekly planner is purrfect! My favorite day is my birthday and my wedding anniversary I need a planner to remind my husband of those important dates =)
