The Story of Us : A Family Memoir Journal

 One place to record what our life looked like, and what our love felt like. 

One place to record what our life looked like, and what our love felt like. 

This project is so close to my heart. It began as a way to keep our memories (in one place so I didn't for get where I wrote them all down) and it evolved into an essential practice that daily makes me see what I have to be grateful in my life. The Journal is for keeping your family memoir.

I designed it to be a series of prompts that celebrate your life as it is right now, because in a heartbeat this time and the funny stories that happened will be forgotten. It's a place to vent to and write about my struggles so that my kids know a good life is not without it's struggles. It's a place to tell them how much I love them and share my heart with them. It's a place to celebrate our family's little victories that are so important to each of us.

This process has changed my life and allowed me to see around the spills and tantrums. They're in our day, they're a part of our story, they should be recorded. They tell so much about our life right now. But I've learned to look past them, and onto what's beautiful & joyful. This journal is an incredible gift for you & your children. Your words and love can be passed through your journal entries, letters, and all of the love you put into it. It's also an incredible gift for any other mom you know.
