A Habit for Life


A while back, I wrote about purchasing a five-year diary. I've been using it pretty consistently since March. At first it was difficult for me to remember to write in it each evening, but then I moved it to the top of my nightstand, and now it's really easy to remember. The process literally only takes two minutes a night, but I love it. I already feel like the time with my boys is slipping by so fast, and I have a built-in way to reminisce each day. I loved bringing it on our recent vacation, so that I could capture our days.

I wish I would have started this when Henry was born! Maybe I'll start buying people this journal as part of their baby shower present.

I think this is a fantastic idea. You've inspired me to pick up one for myself.

Definitely buy it as a baby shower gift! I had been keeping a five year journal for myself for about three years when I found out I was pregnant. My partner bought me one for our son the Christmas before he was born. I have been writing in it since his due date and it is so fun to look back on the past years' day each night with my partner. It is also so much less work than a baby book, which I never would have kept up with. Highly recommend!
