This is more than a journal - it’s truly a time capsule. In life we have a tendency to forget to write about our happy moments, usually because we are caught up in them or because (for better or worse) the sad times seem more worthy of journaling about. The Engagement Journal proves this is not the case and encourages the writer to lean into happiness. In the moment it’s a gift because it allows you to fully feel your joy and embark on a deeper emotional chapter with your partner. It’s also a future self gift because it helps you hold onto moments you might forget in all the details of wedding planning and life changes. Beyond that- it gives those around you a chance to see your relationship (should you choose to share) and be part of your love story.
Simply put, I would give this to anyone and everyone about to enter this next committed chapter of their lives. For our marriage it has been a catalyst beyond just the engagement chapter. Seeing our journal is a reminder that we get to keep writing our love story and focusing on us - no matter what chaos life brings.
Thank you for creating this and giving people a chance to embrace joy!
