Buyer Spotlight: Bullet Journals

January: it’s a perfect time of year to start getting your life organized, whether with planners and journals, or with calendar alerts on your phone. But myself? I’m always trying to stay organized. In fact, over the summer, I fell down a rabbit hole of bullet journal blogs, posts, and videos—and, like any good friend (or enabler?), I took a few other people down the rabbit hole with me. We made plans to start our own bullet journals, which included multiple ones for different needs.

At Brazos, we think of ourselves as having something for everybody, wherever they’re from, but of course we cannot escape a key part of our identity: Texas.

If you’re in love with all things Texas, or if you just want to give a taste of the Lone Star State to somebody else, we have some great books and gifts for you.
