memoriae per diem

Latin: memories each day.

On April 1, I'm going to try something new.  I am going to keep a daily log of something that happened each day.  It can be big ("I won a huge trial!) or small ("I ate Indian food for lunch") or anything in between.  It can be happy, sad, mundane or downright boring.  I don't want to put the kind of pressure on myself that writing in a journal would.  So this single memory per day sounds like a fun idea.  I figure even if I am away from home, I can jot something down in my phone and then put it in the book later.  

Here is the book.  I bought it because it's pretty and it has enough pages. OK and because it's white. 

I'll be sure to let you know how the project went -- these little snapshots of each day.  It reminds me of something Karl Lagerfeld once said:  "What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce."  Yes.  

Have a great weekend! And a very happy Easter for those who celebrate it. 

See you swoon,


  1. What a great idea! I love journaling, and really love going back a year or two later and seeing where I was and what I did on that day and how far I've come :)

    And that is a beautiful book!

  2. I love this idea! I have been meaning to do something like this forever!
    If you're looking for an app for your phone - I like Momento - lets you quickly jot down something, but also can pull from your feeds - like FB and Foursquare to help you remember what you might have done that day.
