Favorite journals for moms

In Style by Carrie Beth & JenLeave a Comment

As moms, we wear a lot of hats and one of those tends to be historian for the family. We’d like to think we will remember how we felt during pregnancy, when our babies hit certain milestones, and what their first words were. But, the truth is that as time passes and we move into new stages with our kids, we unintentionally forget those small little details that were such important events at the time. That is why we quickly learned the importance of writing things down!
