Welcome to the Random Journal Day Link Up for June! I am overflowing with enthusiasm (naturally) in excess tonight as I tap out these words to share all the good stuff going on here this weekend. Big breaths…OK. So, as you all know we link up and share from our journals the first Friday of each month. All Journal Keepers (and planner addicts?) are welcome. Please jump in as you are and hang out with us. We are an easy-going bunch, and open to all sorts of nonsense!

This month is THREE times as special because not only do we have an extremely wonderful Featured Journal Keeper but we also have a Giveaway from her very generous heart and soul! All of this coinciding with our 21 Days of Journaling in June journey. Phew. Awesomeness abounds.
