It was a sweet moment when Stewart shared his journal with me, but it also made me realize how bad I am about journaling. I love how just reading about what I was feeling at a specific point in time can make me go back to that exact memory. Not only do I want to remember these sweet times in life, but I also want to be able to share them with my kids someday. So- here is my ode to be better at journaling. Hopefully it works!

The other night Stewart pulled out his journal he started in college. He only had four or five entries in it, and started reading me what he wrote. His first entry he basically wrote how he made a goal to write in his journal everyday. His next entry wasn't till three days later (not bad) and he just talked about his day and a few thoughts he had. A few weeks later (smile), was about the time we started dating. He read me what he wrote about how he felt about me, and it made me cry. His next entry he wrote not long after we were married. (Again, made me cry), but also made me remember that "so in love" feeling I had on that special day.
