2011 Memory Logbook Review

  1. Do you scrapbook in chronological order? 
  2. Are you all caught up?
  3. Do you have a photographic memory?

IF you answered NO to any of these questions - you NEED a Memory Logbook!
and let me tell you why...



"We are here to help you capture your everyday life – the memories and milestones, the serious and the funny, the ordinary and the extra special … all of those things that you’d like to be able to look back on someday and really remember. The stuff that you’ll want to share with your kids and grandkids. The thoughts and moments and experiences you might not realize are important now but later will become your most treasured memories." -LYM

Life is short. Live it. Love it. Retain it- with the help of Log Your Memory!

I don't know about you, but I answered NO to question 1, 2, and 3. I am not good at memory keeping.
I have never used a Memory Logbook.
Why hasn't anyone told me about it? This is the greatest invention ever! I now have the Memory Logbook 2011: Jan to June Print Edition in my hands- and can't wait to get started! To see more details about this little jewel.. click here.. I want to share what I am excited about-

Why I can't wait to use my 2011 Memory Logbook:
1. I take pictures of the same things every year. 
Birthdays, Holidays, First Day of School... blah.. blah.. I have never thought to take a picture of my favorite place- my bed! Real, everyday life is what it's all about. With the 2011 Memory Logbook- I am reminded of these things. Each month there is a theme with a coordinating quote and loads of photo ideas.

2. Themes make you think outside the box. 
The 2011 theme for the year is "This Is My Life". While your kids, family and friends are all important- what about YOU? It's time to hand over the camera and be in a few.

3. Memory Calendar Only.  
 I can't wait for 2011- so I can get started already! I am going to use my Memory Logbook Calendar only to log special moments, or funny things my kids say. They grow up so fast!


4. Daily events, doodles and notes.
I have an iPhone, I have iCal on my computer, I could take notes on these electronic devices, but it just isn't the same! I am planning on keeping my Logbooks forever, as a handwritten journal. 

5. Checklists and Reminders.
Lets face it- I am getting old. I can only remember so much these days. Not only do I need to "log" my memories- I need a reminder to log my memories, so so sad. 
This 2011 Memory Logbook has just that- plenty of reminders. A challenge checklist and your own personal memory assistant with reminder emails!
At least once per week, you will receive an email via your inbox or mobile device with details about the current Memory Logbook Weekly Challenge with helpful tips, chat & event information, etc. etc.

And that my friends, is the top 5 reasons of why I need a Memory Logbook.

I would love to find myself again this year! I feel like I have forgotten what makes me ME. Being a Mommy of a very active 2 year old, I think I have forgotten who I am without him, and one day he isn't going to need me as much as he does now and then who will I be! After he was born, I sort of fell to the way side. I want to find ME again, so I can be a better Mommy to him in the coming year and in the many years ahead! This would be an awesome thing to help me on my journey back to me!
