The 2014 Saints Calendar & 16-Month Planner

The Saints Calendar and Planner from Tan has always been one of my favorite planning tools for Celebrating the Liturgical Year. This calendar sold out quickly last year and many of you were not able to purchase a copy.

The new 2014 Saints Calendar & 16-Month Planner begins September 1st of this year, so be sure to pre-order a copy soon!

The ever-popular 2014 Saints Calendar and Daily Planner is a 16 month calendar ready to use in September. Our spiral-bound design allows plenty of space for daily appointments in a lay-flat format.

This Calendar has become a favorite for home or office with professionals, students, and busy homeschool families.

TAN calendars contain special feasts and fascinating Catholic traditions. They are marked with days of Fasting, special Saints Days, and the Sundays of the Liturgical Year for both the Ordinary and Extraordinary Calendar.

You can see sample pages from my 2013 Saints Calendar here.

The beautiful wall calendars published by Tan for 2014 will include: The Life of Our Lord, Mary and the Saints and The Angels.


The planner and calendars are available to pre-order from Amazon or directly from Tan.

I hope you all have a blessed Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul!

Monday morning we woke up to the sound of waves crashing on the beach and the lowest tide of the year
It was a negative tide (-2.21 at 7:10 AM) and absolutely incredible!

(Additional pictures from our trip can be found here and here.) 

Another Trip to the Ocean

After Mass on Sunday our family went on another road trip to the coast to meet up (once again) with our dear friends who moved to the midwest a couple years ago!  It has been a rainy couple weeks, and it was chilly and misty when we arrived at the beach.  All the kids were so excited to be back at the ocean and I was very thankful to breathe the salty sea air as I continue to fight this summer cold. ;)

After unpacking the car and saying hello to all our friends, Sean and the boys started a campfire on the beach with some of the wood they had squeezed into the back of our overcrowded minivan.   It was raining but we were determined to roast hot dogs and marshmallows!

One of our little guys forgot his jacket at home and looked so funny in his "homemade" rain jacket recycled by his daddy from a case of water bottles!  At least it helped keep him dry.
