A diary for them










(You see that little date on my sparrow count? March twenty fourth. I did that sparrow count four years ago with Elle as a baby. Two years later, little Mia was born on the same date)

Six years ago, i started this journal. I loved creating the pages and having a secret place to write little things and to scribble little drawings and a place to stick in my most favourite polaroids. When i had Elle, i decided to keep going with the journal so i could eventually give it to the girls when they were bigger.

I have finally completed the journal now and i wanted to share a few of my favourite pages. I hope the girls love this when they are older. I have already started on a written lullaby diary for them and maybe, one day, when they are bigger, we shall write little melody's to the lullabies. I love the idea of making little secret keepsakes for them. Elle already likes to look through this journal and she has started her own of her pressed flowers which i posted about here.

  1. What a beautiful dairy! I would love to know how you made it. Are those actual Polaroid photos or did you just print them to look that way? I love it! x

  3. This is just the sweetest thing, how wonderful for your children to have something like this created by their mum :) making memories and finding sweet ways to preserve them is a beautiful thing! I did something similar for my boyfriend's 21st birthday, a journal jam packed with memories :) we love looking through it together, and remember different times/things each time we do :) xx
