A couple of years ago I started writing my history. Stories of my children's births (PG versions), my gardens, family vacations, memories of my childhood, and all that jazz. I cherish each of these stories. I love that they will live on for my great-great-great grandchildren as they zip around in hover cars and visit the moon, they'll read about our road trip to Cali with a carsick four-year-old. :)
Why did I start writing these? It all stats with a book, as most great things do, called "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin. Read it, I loved it, you will too. (remember Reading Rainbow?) :) Click here to go to the Goodreads page.
She had this part about being a treasure house of memories and I adore that idea. My idea was to create a mini journal focusing on the little cute and crazy things my kids do and say. I don't want to forget all those little things that really make up our day to day life.
That's just one of the things I do to write in a different way and to stretch myself. Want do you do in writing or memory keeping?
