After setting my 2018 resolutions, I spent far too long trying to find a monthly family calendar that would suit our needs. The minimalist in me knew that a white-board like option would be best (much to the despair of my sentimental side – ‘but in the future how will we remember what we did on April 14th, 2018?!), but I was disappointed with how utilitarian the options were. Pinterest is a beautiful thing for that exact conundrum. There are some amazing DIY options out there, but unfortunately they were all a bit too complicated, or required tools that I do not own. I wanted something that was both easy on time and expense, and that would blend into our homes aesthetic – so to the drawing board I went.
