Our Life Story: A Diary For a Whole Life Time of Memories.

 Every person has a unique life story. There is no such thing as two life stories being the same. As a blogger, I believe that everyone should take the time to put their story on paper or to write blogs. There are parts of my family life that I like to capture and share. The milestones, the events and all the exciting adventures we like to explore together. I know that by writing our life story we will be able to get a better understanding of one another, understand each others hopes and dreams individually as well as a couple. It a chance to see our relationship grow as the years fly by. It's also a great way to leave a legacy for family and friends. We all get so busy and never have enough time to sit down with family to tell them about our story.  Seeing as we will be celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary tomorrow what better way to celebrate those five years together than encouraging my husband to unleash his creative mind with the perfect gift; Our Life Story.

With so much packed into our life together, it's a great idea to keep track of our hopes, dreams and achievements. Five years ago we both stood at the altar, and made our promises to one another. We were filled with so many hopes, dreams and looking forward to all the memories we were yet to create. Before getting married we knew that our life would be different, our marriage would be different and in the throes our creating our life together I began to realise we have had so many fantastic memories to look back on. Holidays, weddings, parties, unexpected events, arrival of our daughter and many big adventures as a family of three. However, we want to be able to experience all the moments again and again and that's exactly what we plan on doing with Our Life Story.

With Our Life Story we will be able to record our adventures and lifetime together. We can document our travels and even fill in a world map as we go, not forgetting to fill those pages with our dreams as a family, record achievements and our ambitions as a couple and individually. Making plans to create lists of our favourite places to go together, hello Cuba our dream places to visit and even things we like to eat. This will be a place for us to record events through our years together. Seeing as I started a bullet journal for all my blog work, this will be the perfect way to record all those moments that we want to remember. 

Each section is clearly set out to ensure that we feel inspired when we write about journey. Our life story begins with a section about us which is the perfect opportunity to write facts about each other such as names, dates, jobs and education. You also have an opportunity to write about your skills, meaning that you can pin points certain achievements throughout our life. There is also a suggestion page full of ideas of places to visit, places to eat and so much more so you certainly won't be short of inspiration. There are pages for your ideas, hopes and dreams as a couple so you can tick these off as you. Personally, there are a few countries that my husband and I want to visit as a family, such as Thailand, Italy and in a few years we would love to take our daughter to Cuba to show her all our adventures on our honeymoon.

Each year is set out quite nicely with spaces for writing your stories with the changing seasons finishing with highlights of the year. I can't help but think that most of our stories will consist of many events centred around the little lady and feature many photos of her beautiful smile. There are over one thousand pages to write our life memoirs so there is plenty of opportunity to ramble for a page or two. I must admit writing our life story is something that I have been meaning do since our wedding day, it's just something that has always intrigued me and a a gift like this is such a sentimental gift to give. I'm pretty sure that my husband will really adore this gift.

This book allows you to create your own diary and record all the highs and lows, trials and tribulations, times that are good and bad in your life time. The book allows you to capture all the different events during a lifetime in one book instead of buying a new diary every year. A place to record different milestones within life, which could include events such as the places you have visited, the times you have moved house, started university or even the people you met throughout life.

This could be given as a gift for a wedding to capture the new chapter in someone's life or a Christening for the parents to fill in during their child's younger years and passed on to them to be continued as they grow. It also comes with a slip case, which will protect it from wear and tear throughout your and its lifetime. A few years from now you will be able to look back at your family holidays, shared experiences, unexpected events and big adventures, through the good times and the bad. With over one thousand pages, there's enough for a lifetime.

People choose to write about their lives for a variety of reasons, including a desire to leave something for their children and future generations, to create a record for themselves so they can be reminded of their youthful adventures when they're old and forgetful, and to offer something of value to the rest of the world. Writing a life story is a very personal experience, but if you're willing to share your life story as a couple, it can be incredibly rewarding. Have you ever thought about writing your life story? Or your story as a couple?
