May Bullet Journal Setup
I say this every month so you can take this with a grain of salt but May's bullet journal theme is possibly my favorite theme of all time! As you can see, I went with a blue hydrangeas floral theme and I just love the way it turned out! I watercolored the flowers in (I'm planning on doing a tutorial on that coming soon) and it turned out much better than expected. I'm not an artist at all but I found a few Youtube videos that I watched and with some practice, I was able to paint these. If I can do it, you guys definitely can too! I hope you enjoy this month's layouts!

Like last month, I kept my calendar boxes together instead of spaced apart. I put my monthly tracker on the side and painted another hydrangea on the space I had left over on the bottom.
Habit Tracker and monthly goals
I really liked my vertical habit tracker I used last month so I figured, why not do it again? I really like doing this vertically because I don't have to keep flipping my notebook over to fill out the trackers. My Monthly Goals page has stayed the same since I first started bullet journaling. I may be ready for a change after this month though. Anyone have any spread ideas for it?

Expense Tracker and One Line a day
These two pages haven't changed much either. I think I may take a page out of other bullet journalers next month and do a budget tracker layout instead of listing out every single thing I buy.
This page is too necessary for me to give up.

I only created two weeks worth of weekly spreads because I didn't want to overcommit to a type of spread. I am happy to report I've made a slight change to the layout of the weekly spread though - I shortened (ever so slightly) the spacing of my dailies and added a "Next Week" section to list out things I didn't manage to get done that week. I quite like it right now but we'll see how I like actually using it.
Let me know how you like this month's theme and spreads!
