Last week I had a birthday. A milestone birthday.
Yes, that one.
To mark the occasion I decided to get myself a gift.
I first read about it at Simple Mom and knew I had to have one for myself.
The format of the book is so clever. I love the way it chronicles your life for 5 years and allows you to easily look back and see what you were doing exactly one year ago. Some people have suggested occasionally having your children write in the journal to record what their handwriting looked like. The one line a day format is not intimidating- I think I'll actually be able to keep up with this journal. I'm looking forward to recording all my adventures in its pages.
I love this little journal so much I decided to gift it to my children's teachers and coaches as a way to say thank you to them before our big move. A little kraft paper and a strip of printed map made for pretty wrapping.
I hope the recipients love this little journal as much as I do.
