I have to share with y'all something that I've been LOVING for the past few months.
It's called "One Line a Day: A Five Year Memory Book".
I love writing (obviously) but journaling has never been my thing. I would do it for a while but not stick with it. I have a prayer/Bible study journal, but journaling about my life and important events just never really happened.
Then I found this little book and knew that it was made for people like me. I looked at a few different kinds of this type of journal, but One Line a Day was my favorite by far. I loved the layout, the gold pages, the sturdiness of the book, the size, everything.
Here's how it works:
Every day (starting whenever you want) you write a short snippet or highlight about your day. It's not literally one line per day, it's actually five lines, but you can't fit more than a couple complete sentences at most. I told my friends that it's similar to a Tweet's worth of writing. :)
There are five sections to do this on each page, so when your first year is over you are writing in the second section every day. That way you can look back at what you wrote a year before (which I love doing!). It's an awesome way to reflect and praise God for what He is doing or has done in your life! By the time you finish the book, you will have FIVE years worth of memories/highlights. How cool!
Not a great picture, but you can kinda see the layout here.
There's a gold bookmark to keep your place, and a spot to write the year in each section. It's simple.
So simple that I've actually stuck with it for a few months now! It only takes a minute or two every night.
I wish I would have started this when we got married. Or when I started college. Or high school. Or my entire life, haha.
You can get it on Amazon, at Barnes & Noble, and I've even seen the Mom version at Target. (It's pink and says Mom's One Line a Day.)
I sound like I'm selling this thing, but I'm not, I just LOVE IT. Clearly. Get one.
