Last week, I kicked off my 12 Weeks ’till Christmas countdown. Or was it the week before? Technically, it might be a tad less than 11 weeks \’till Christmas. Everyone needs a Christmas tradition, apparently mine is trending to tardiness.
This week, I wanted to profile the gorgeous On The Trail Day Planners which photographer Kim Taylor, of Sliding U Photography releases every year. Kim puts forth an incredible body of work each year, profiling ranches and the cowboy way of life. The photos are poignant, gorgeous and unique.
Not only that, the day planner is simple and useful. I\’ve been using them for nearly a decade now, a stack of all previous years in my storage files, quite invaluable if I need to confirm a date or event from years gone by.
It\’s a Christmas gift almost anyone can use and will love. You can be from Toronto and love this day planner. It\’s true. Torontonians will especially love pages such as this one, while they are in their cozy condos and houses, and we\’re out forking hay and chipping the ice off waterers.
I\’ve given them to young and old alike, kids adore them, older folks flip through them lovingly. There is something both contemporary and nostalgic about them, all at once. It may be the age of digital, but I still love the tactile quality of a printed journal.
You can order On The Trail day planners directly at Kim\’s site or find them at your local tack store, they retail for $24.95. We do have a limited amount in stock at the Western Horse Review Store, however, egads, our online store is days away from launching so you can\’t order from it quite yet . . . in the meantime, you could e-mail us at [email protected] and we\’ll get one to you.
Because I love these day planners so much, and because it\’s a festive weekend of another sort, I\’m giving one away! Just let me know what your Halloween plans are for the weekend in the Comment section below. Contest closes Friday, the 28th at midnight. Boo.
