Hello friends, I can’t believe it’s August already, and the kids are soon back to school. I’ll be spending the weekend and much of next week adventuring with the kiddos and savoring what’s left of summer.

I’ve been writing more in my Motherhood Journal lately after spending many months ignoring it.  I wish I hadn’t done that, they change so much so quickly, and for me it’s important to record not only their changes but also my reflections too.

Do you journal?  In this digital world, there’s something so nice about the written word in one’s own handwriting and a place to store ideas and thoughts.  This weekend five winners can pick a journal from the collection over at Gadanke – an online store for handmade journals made from recycled papers.  Whether it’s for travel, for prayer, or for just the little things, it is important to record your thoughts, because your story matters. pick your journal
