James got me this amazing journal last year, where each day of the year has its own page and then there are five rows on a page to capture the details of that day for five years. I've been diligently updating and it's now a household tradition that I keep it on my bedside table so that we can talk about the day's highlights that we both want to remember. Some days are very low-key, or as James says when it's just a standard work-meeting-etc day, "the uzh" (short for "the usual"). Others are jampacked with fun, and I have to cross the borders of the next years to capture it all.
Now that I have completed a full year of entries, things get really fun with this little journal! Not only do we capture the day's highlights, but we then get a small time capsule of what we were doing the previous year. As I read last year's entry out loud, the memories quickly come back. I've also made a note of the city where we're at that day, which will make for some fascinating comparisons in the years to come - "oh James was in Riyadh for work that day, while I was in Dubai, and the next year we're in ..."
Not showing any entries, but here's the Feb 29th day where I don't have anything written (other than a scrawl to get the ink flowing in my pen), so that you can see what each page looks like.
It will be so fascinating when we're in the fifth year, to read back on the previous years' memories and places.
