Friday Finds


I haven't done Friday Finds in awhile so I thought I would share something fun I found this week. Wednesday evening I ventured out to my happy place. I go to the bookstore to browse, shop, sit and drink tea. I do it every now and then when I need to recharge my batteries and be alone.

In walking through the isles I came across this book: One Line A Day A Five Year Memory Book. It looked simple yet elegant. A tiny book with enough room for one sentence a day for the next five years. What an incredible idea! It is even small enough to be portable. Now do I think I will fill it out every...single...day? Nope. I don't have that kind of discipline but I think it is an excellent way to add points of interest and milestones in my family's life. I am thinking more of an heirloom treasure here. Can you imagine my great-grandchildren one day looking through this book seeing the day to day points that made up our lifetime? It could even be a time-capsule of sorts, noting what gas prices were or the cost of a gallon of milk. Even in five years time these things are bound to change.  I absolutely go crazy for quirky stuff like this and quickly snatched one up for myself.

My first entry:

January 26, 2011. Bought this book at Barnes and Noble. Dinner: chocolate cupcake and chai tea.

See!! I can even document my poor diet choices!
