too. many. books.

I've always been a journal writer. I know some people have a hard time doing it, but for some reason it has always come very easily to me...ever since I got my first diary when I was in kindergarten. But recently I've realized maybe I'm taking it a little too far... This is a picture of all the journals/books I am currently using:

1. This book is pretty new to the collection. I've only used 1 page so far and I think it might become my new "schedule book."
2. This is my current schedule and/or sketch book.
3. My spiritual thoughts/insights journal (straight from Florence, Italy).
4. My "1st-year being married" journal (Aaron has one too...we write nice things about each other in them. Aaron's idea...CUTE, huh?)
5. My real journal...I finished my other one a few weeks ago and since using this new one I've written in it every single day!

And being in a Bookbinding class (learning how to make books) probably isn't helping either. Books #1 and #2 are completely homemade! :) Homemade book #3 will be done next week. I think I'll use it for favorite recipes and stuff.


  1. I do that too. I see a cute new journal and start using it even though my other journal isn't done yet. I feel ya. But yours are way more cute- I mean, homemade?! That's awesome.

  2. i would love a homemade book! great birthday idea, huh? (hint, hint)

  3. Your homemade books are so cute! How is it that I don't hear about this class until a month from graduation?! I am sure that that is such a fun/useful talent!

  4. How jealous am I! For two things...

    1. Making homemade books. I think making my own journal would add so much sentimental value to it! Not to mention some major cuteness! I always look at like 5 stores when trying to find a new journal because I want it to look just right.

    2. Writing in them every day! I used to write in journals faithfully too and now I struggle to get in one entry per week. I am very impressed with you and your journal keeping!

    p.s. the 1st year married journal is super cute! I might have to buy some for zack and i. ours would just have to be for married year number 2 :)
