One of the things I collect is journals. (Along with pens and books, of course.) They’re just so pretty and inviting…
A quick rummage found these nine, though more probably hide in a drawer somewhere else.
Three I bought myself. The composition ones sometime in college, a set of three, one of which I have used but nowhere near filled. The little, curved-edge one in the front was shiny and tempting, a recent purchase. I was sure I was going to use it… but I haven’t.
The rest are gifts. I’m sure at some point I was a kitten-with-bow kind of girl. Maybe… The two fabric ones are part of a set, some used. The striped one comes with a matching pen but is a little flimsy and pink for me. The brown water scene and brown pleather flip book simply got forgotten.
And to think I was staring longingly at an adorable owl-decorated journal recently.
I’m going to jettison the three pinker, girlish, flowery ones, in the hopes they can find a better home. And make an effort to start using some of my partially filled ones, so I can move on to the alluring blank pages still awaiting me.
