  2. Hi Jaymi! I’m new to your blog, but I enjoyed reading this post. I wish I could stick to a bullet journal on a regular basis…the creative way, that is. I’m quite lost without my to-do and meeting diary, especially on working days – heheh! And I love rum cake!….I make those only at Christmas time, though.
