I saw this journaling project on Design Sponge last week and I keep thinking about it, so I thought I'd share. It's a simple concept - an index card for each day of the month, a postcard dividing each month. You jot down one thing that happened each day, then start over again the next year using the same index cards. It's so simple, but it's perfect!
I have a drawer full of good intentions and meaningful projects I want to get around to. In the meantime, the daily stuff sort of slips away. So yesterday, when my son learned to snap and was inordinately pleased with himself, I realized that that's what I would write down for the day. And suddenly, it felt like such a meaningful thing to remember. (If I wrote down that simple thing, would I remember his unbridled joy twenty years from now?)
I'm going to make this calendar before the new year. But I'm not waiting until January 1st. In the meantime, I'm jotting down notes in my notebook. Today's entry - Hudson learned to double snap.
