Memories and birthdays.  They go hand in hand.  Whether its your own or someone elses.  There are memories to be made and cherished.

Memories, Birthdays + {Giveaway}

I have so many, many memories of the years gone by in my life.

My Dad

My dad. Wishing I had more memories with him.

My mom

My mom. Fun times we have had over the years.

My brother

My brother. My baby brother.  My rock and my hero.


Living in Hawaii for 5 years while my dad was in the Navy.

Girls Scouts

12 years of Girl Scouts and all those camping trips.

My briends

My friends. So many years with some of the greatest women I will ever know.  Laughs, tears and just great times.  We bowled a lot together too!

My son

The greatest achievement of my life, my son.  What a wonderful young man he has turned out to be.  So smart and talented.  Graduation was hard on this mom.


And the love of my life, my hubby.  Someone I will always lean on and enjoy life with.  A Godly man and my teacher of scripture.

As I have gotten older, I realized some of those memories weren’t as bright as they use to be.  Main reason I started taking pictures more and more.  Reminders of memories I never want to fade in my aging brain.

One other thing I have started doing is writing down my memories.  Even though there are pictures to look at, sometimes they don’t show the details of that memory.

I was thrilled when The Every Year Calendar folks contacted me to see if I would try out their product.  Oh my what a beautiful dateless calendar this is.  You can start anytime you like and there are so many areas to write in.

What I love the best is its so colorful and makes it so enjoyable to write down my memories for that day or occasion.  I love my new calendar/memory book I can keep and enjoy with my son in years to come.

I can see this calendar being used by mommies to be, new mommies or mommies with growing children.  Wouldn’t it be great to show them when they graduate and all the memories you had during their life time.

The folks of The Every Year Calendar have also offered one of these calendars to one of my readers.

Oh, and I forgot to add………its my birthday!!!!!!!!!!
