What Does Your Calendar Look Like?

For twenty years, I've been perfectly happy with hanging up the current date on the calendar one day at a time and then proceeding to do my daily calendar routines.  I honestly never gave it much thought.  Once in a while, I'd walk into a classroom and see something "odd" on their calendar:  all the days filled in even before the date happened. Can you imagine? :)
Um...why did I always think that was odd?  (Shrugs shoulders!) In fact, it's not odd at all. That's how the five calendars in my house look right now.  In fact, that's how the one at the bank looks, the one in my wallet looks, the one on my phone looks....

So why was I doing it the "other" way?  Why didn't I ever really THINK about it? 

To be honest, I never questioned "my way" until I read a blog post yesterday. Take a look.

Since lots of people repinned my pin of the post yesterday, I bet there are lots of opinions out there today.  I'd love to hear yours if you care to share.

I'm thinking there has to be a more authentic and meaningful way than I've been doing it for...gulp...20 years!

  4. WOw, the article was wonderful. I always hated doing the calendar one day at a time. It just seemed so fake. Authentic is the right word Tammy! I just loved this idea of a year long calendar and the child saying it was like getting to take home his Kindergarten year. Just lovely.
