One Line a Day

 Image from

I just wanted to show you one of my favorite Christmas presents!  It's called, "Mom's One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book" and I absolutely love it!

Here's how it works.  Each page holds space for 5 entries - one for that particular date for the next five years. So next year, when I write on the page for January 1st, I can remember that Kate took her first steps!

Why I love it:  

1 - I love how you can compare what happens on that same date over the 5-year period.  

2 - I especially love how it really is just one line a day!  I'm someone who would love to be a good journal writer, but I'm just too intimidated by trying to write down every single detail.  This forces me to condense, to keep it simple, and to highlight only the most important moments, quotes, or events.  It's perfect for me.  

3 - Plus, I know that our kids are going to love looking through it when they're older!

Anything special that you got for Christmas?  Please share!


  1. That's a great way to keep track of milestones and memories. :)

  2. Hey hey - I just noticed that in the picture of your awesome journal you put down 2010... but I'm pretty sure you meant 2011, because there is NO way Kate started taking a few steps while she was still in your tummy ;)

    Love ya! - Alex

  3. Alex - ha ha! That's so funny that you noticed and I'm so glad you did - I've actually been writing 2010 all along! I can't believe I didn't realize!
