It's too beautiful for words! Gifted to me by DD. A5 size.
Don't feel like using it for something silly like a gratitude journal. Do you have any suggestions?
I'm thinking so far :

Best moments of my life (but quite a thick book and not sure I have that many!)

All my favourite recipes.

Lessons I've learnt in life (to be passed down).

Thank you

There are some beautiful bullet journal ideas if you google fir inspiration

Recipes, definitely - you sound like you think the rest are all a bit airy fairy and therefore they are likely to taper off (they would with me too).

One sentence a day book. You can get notebooks specifically for this but could use any book. Like a diary but sum your day up in one sentence, keep going all year, longer than a year if space.

Favourite quotes
A book of top ten/twenty lists
Eg your personal top 20 books, films, recipes, names, plants etc

Are you children young or grown up? I have a beautiful note book that I write letters in to my children, just every now and then, so they can read them when they grow up and hear about funny things they did etc.

Kids are teens and yes BouncyMonk that's such a brilliant thing to do. I did it for each of my kids from age 1 onwards and all those hilarious toddler comments are recorded. My kids regularly read the books and laugh so much.

I do like the top 20 suggestion!
