I really wanted to have this collection of beautiful family yearbooks, but I just don’t think that’s my reality, and I’m okay with that. So I’m giving something else a try and I simply ordered a beautiful little journal that I’m writing down adventures and memories as a family. My filter for what goes in this journal is things that I might have wanted to capture in a family yearbook. To kick start, I’ve listed a few questions to answer yearly/monthly or whenever you’d like to document.
What’s on your nightstand right now?
What can you not stop talking about?
What is your family loving this month?
What goals are you working on?
Who did you visit/visit with?
- Names and ages
- Occupations and schools
- Goals and dreams
These are just a few prompts to get your mind moving. Writing memories is something new for me, but whenever I go to print a photo book, I’d always rather have captions than no captions, so with this journal I hope to fill in that gap.
