On Journaling: Meredith's Story

Hey! I'm Meredith and I blog over at yours, mine & ours and I'm a journal keeper.

I've been keeping my own journal for a while (thank you teenage angst for making me write all my feelings down. I got hooked!) and even started a journal full of letters to my son when I was pregnant with him. I keep adding to it every few weeks as he learns new words, does something funny, or I just have to write down how much we adore him. Because I've been writing little things here and there since he was just a little nugget, I remember so much more! I need all the help I can get in the memory department. :)

I just use 99 cent notebooks to journal in. Sometimes I embellish the front and sometimes I just go to work filling the pages.

"Dear B,
You are such a rock star napper: 3 to 4 hours every afternoon!! Thank you little nugget. I appreciate it big time.
Love, Yo Mama!"

I love being able to look back at what I was thinking and feeling years ago and I hope my little boy enjoys his book later on too.


Thanks, Meredith, for sharing your journal story! Do you have a story to share? I'd love to feature a few folks and why they journal. Email me at iamalongfortheride @ gmail . com.

  1. So neat that you started a journal for your boy! I wish I had thought to do such a thing when I was pregnant with him!


Thank you for coming along for the ride with me. Your comments make my day!
