Congrats on the 500th post!

Lovely to see you diary and organisers, always admire your books. I'm not doing Fit, but will be working through OLW with Ali, I missed having a word last year, or perhaps more accurately missed doing anything with it...

Look forward to hearing how that journal develops.


A very Happy New Year to you Alexa.

500th post - amazing & brilliant. I agree with your son, you have such a wonderful writing style, your memories would be a best seller instantly & with your fabulous photos ... well, I'd put it on my Santa wish list!

I look forward to your 2019 posts.


It made me smile so much when I read about your son encouraging you to write more about your days - now make sure you listen to him and write it all down!
It's always lovely to see your blog pop up as updated and I look forward to seeing more of your blogposts now we are in the new year.

OH, Alexa - I just love that photo with the journals & organizers; it just makes me so happy & represents the new year so well! (And I saw that Cathy Z featured one of your photos in the FIT group! :)) I've joined in FIT this year as well, although I probably won't be doing much documenting other than tracking in my planner (exercise & meals). I'm determined to get in better shape after a couple of very emotional years.

Happy New Year!!!!!

I'm always intrigued by your designs and processes, and like Debs, I'm always delighted to see your blog pop up in my reader. I've took on an integrative health program in December, and have had quite a bit of success with it, so decided to pass on Fit this time around. I did decide to sign up for Ali's One Little Word class this year. I lost track of last year's word---perhaps it didn't really fit me, but I thought Ali's monthly prompts would encourage me to take a closer look each month at this year's word. I'm not doing an album, but have chosen to journal about it in a notebook. Now I just have to find time to write it all up so I can share it on a blog post.

Hi Alexa! So lovely to see your post and glad that you are back! Your documenting system is so classically you - it's beautiful. I'm going for very simple this year - with pre-printed pages in my daily planner. Will have to get it added to my blog!


It's always a delight to see a new post from you pop up in my reader! Happy New Year to you! Your journals are always such a feast for the eyes and I'm another who agrees with your son ... you'd better get started!


Your notebooks are so beautiful. I stitched together a FIT notebook that is very basic but it feels like a good time to get back to paying attention to my wellness.


this all looks very cool! but mostly, I'm just glad to see TWO posts from your in my feed reader. Happy New Year!!


Congratulations on your 500th post and Happy New Year. So glad to see you still posting, your photography is always so beautiful. I hope you do take up the encouragement of your children to journal and how wonderful that they recognise the value of your perspective.


happy new year such gorgeousness from you as always xxx


Happy New Year! So nice to see you back and 500 posts that is quite something to celebrate! I was so happy to see you doing FIT. Me too! I love your planner pages. Can’t wait to see how you use them this year!


Congratulations on your 500th post. I admire your organisation Alexa and how lovely that your children are interested in how you transverse life. I have The Complete Decorated Journal - isn't it wonderful!
