Last weekend, my stepfather and I threw my mother a surprise birthday party. Fortunately, when we were thinking about a location for this party, it was pretty easy to decide to go with my Aunt Susie's house. She lives in a turn of the century farm house that is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens. It's a paradise unto itself.
One thing I admire most about Aunt Susie is that at the end of every day, she journals. It may not be much, maybe a line or two, or maybe she writes pages upon pages, but that is how she ends her days. I remember staying at her house as a young girl, watching her journal, and wanting to do so myself.
The photo above is her collection of journals. I'm pretty sure each notebook represents a year, but I can't be too sure. Either way, that is quite a collection of memories and experiences!
My biggest issue with journaling is finding the time. A lot of time I use blogging as my mode of journaling; a way of documenting my daily life, plus my love of fiber arts and crafts. However, I do wish I had more in print.
What do you think? Do you journal? If so, how often? Do you have a routine?
