Keeping a Monthly Journal

I’m not always good about writing in a daily journal, but I have found a way to keep track of the highlights of the month. I find a photo that I like in a magazine, on the web or just one of my own and I insert it into a word document, add some blank lines and a month/year and PRESTO!
I’ve been doing this since 2006. I start with a new folder each year for the current months, but when the year is over I add them to a folder that contains all of the previous years.
The monthly highlights journal doesn’t have a lot of detail. Some of the entries might read:
- David’s Graduation
- Fenced our yard
- Olivia Grace was born
- Start planning for Australia
As we get older and the years and events blend together, I have found that this is a useful and creative way to track the highlights of our month/year.
