Today is a good day. I went to see a sleep specialist this morning and found solutions for my sleep issues. It's cold and bright out. All the leaves are raining from the trees like colorful candy buttons falling from the sky. Our heater is on, the dogs are snuggled up together and I am watching the X-Files in pjs. It's nice to be here, right now, in this moment, even though most other moments are shit. This one is okay, so I'll take it.

These Stabilo pens are by far the best pens I have ever used. I am sort of a pen snob. I need them super fine, smooth flowing, acid free, and waterproof (as I often paint over my drawings). These pens are amazing, they do all those things and are in the cutest colors. I don't know what else to say to tell you how much I love these, so check 'em out if you are a pen lover/snob as well.

This five year Q & A diary is perfect too. Last year I used a moleskine monthly journal set, but I got a bit bored with it around September and stopped filling them out. So I think this one will be more manageable. The nice thing is it only takes a sentence or two to answer the question. They aren't silly questions either, some are easy and some are hard to answer, but all are thought provoking.

For now I am answering question in the Q & A diary once a day, and also writing in my thin red Classic Moleskine journal daily. I buy them at Target ($18 for a set of two) and they are nice because they don't last all year (I hate having the same large journal all year long), they only last maybe two months for me. They are flexible and the paper is smooth and lovely to write on. 

This pen pack and my journals are some of my favorite things. I am smitten.

Do you journal? If so, what kind of journal do you have?

  1. I used to journal.. not much lately. Just a regular, crappy spiral journal.
    They have ones that ask questions?? I could get in to that.

  2. YAY for a good day! That sounds like an awesome journal. I may have to add that to my Christmas list. I'm not much of a writer, but I can do Q&A.

    1. Yeah, it's nice to have a guided journal when you don't feel like writing too much.

  3. So happy to hear that you've had a good day :)
    I'm a bit of a pen snob too but unlike my fellow pen snobs, I LOOOVE sharpie pens. So many people don't like them but I don't know what I would do without them.
    I try to keep a journal but it's more of a once a month type thing. There isn't a lot that I say in it that I wouldn't put onto my blog.
    I've seen that journal before and thought about getting it, maybe I'll try it out.
