Meme quizzes, Uncategorized ONE LINE A DAY.. 3 June 2010




This is just something small but really meaningful to me… a One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book that I bought in the AMAZING Paper Source store on Santana Row. I love this shop!! Tons of gorgeous little bits of paper and ribbons for DIY invitations, cards and crafts.. and a veritable treasure trove of little knick knacks and collectibles to poke around at.

This particular Memory Book caught my attention because even though I have this online blog, I love how each page of the book is the SAME day, but each section is a different year. That means on the same day each year, you can read your entries that you made 1, 2, 3, 4 years ago. A nice way to re-visit your experiences and memories years from now. Plus, there’s only a few lines per day, so I’m ‘forced’ to condense my rambling long thoughts into something short and sweet to note down.

I’m excited that every day for the next 5 years, I’ll be able to jot down my daily thoughts and compare it to what I was thinking/doing the same time in previous years. A really simple, but cute idea, no? 🙂


Mmmmm….. taco……. 😀

    This is so cool! It’s sort of like a “one sentence” blog, except just for yourself. I think it’d be interesting to keep a journal like this anyway, but pretty binding always makes it nicer 😉

      Yup you’re right! mainly the benefit is being able to see easily on the page what you were doing that 1-5 years before, quite a cute concept 🙂

    What an awesome idea! I have a small daily diary, but I’ve been very bad at keeping it up to date this year.

    Very cool! My entries in personal journal can be bullet points to entire paragraphs. I’ve been keeping a written journal since 2000 and I love the high school version of myself.

    really cool idea. And I like it that it only has a few lines so even on days when you know, you think you have nothing to write, you’ll still be able to conjure up something short! Now you made me feel like creating one myself 🙂
