A Simple Book

Hello there friends! How are we all doing? I'm doing great considering it's 70ish days til the wedding! Aaahh!! I can hardly contain my excitement! : )

So I mentioned Matt and I were having a date night downtown, and we had such a good time. We got all prettied up and ate at one of our fave restaurants. It's in one of the coolest nooks of the city, called Old Town Square, and there are some fun shops and art galleries near by. We spent the evening browsing, exploring, talking, reconnecting, laughing and wandering from shop to shop. We also got gelato at one of my favorite eateries. Mmmm!

See, aren't we cute all ready to go out on the town?

While in one of my favorite shops located in the square, I spied this pretty little blue notebook.

It's a five-year journal, and all you have to do is write a sentence or two each day about what you did or what you experienced. I loved it!

Ignore my scribbly handwriting...it's a bit difficult to write on the small pages : )

I used to journal every night for years and years, but it just got to be too time consuming. With this, I jot a bit down and I'm done!

It also helps if you have a cute scalloped cake plate to display it on ; )

Plus, you can look back over the years and remember milestones or fun day-to-day events you had forgotten about.

I found one online here in case you want to start your own. Do you all journal? I guess that's sorta what a blog's for, huh? : )

    Love you!

  4. You are too cute! Sounds like you enjoyed your shopping expedition and found yourself a special treasure. I have never journaled or kept a diary. I've always been too paranoid someone would read it! Not that I would have anything exciting to write about anyway!

    Thanks for coming by an entering the giveaway. Good luck and have a great week!

    I used to journal. I pick up again every so often, but I throw them out when I'm done. It's more of a way of getting stresses out for me, and defining my goals. I haven't done it for ages.


  6. That book is cute but that plaid shirt you have is way cuter! Where did you get it?


Well hello there! You just made my day!
