The original idea was for a journal that you keep for your kids. She had just taken a plain compositions notebook and put their name on it. Very Simple and it that works for you Awesome. I decided to decorate my journals so they are a little more personal. For the journaling part, it can be as simple as a quick note of something they said that day that was funny, or a detailed story of something about them, what they did, whatever you want. I feel like this is one of the greatest gifts I can give my kids. Little memories of them. We forget things so easily no matter how cute it is. I am going to keep these in my kitchen so that they are easily available for when they make their cute little comments. The other journal I made is for my hubby. A place where I can leave him little quick love notes. As the gal said where I found it. We do all these cute little love notes when we are dating and first married but as life and kids get in the way we forget. So here is a place where we can keep them all in one spot and go back and read them if we want.
