Yesterday In My Gratitude Journal


Yesterday in my gratitude journal, I told a story. It wasn't a long story, but it was more than I could have included in the gratitude journal I use most often {see it here} and see more of my #ilovethursdaythanks posts here.

what I used | before and after
This is my Gratitude Journal after more than a year of use. In hindsight, I probably wouldn't have added the hexagon shape going off the top of the page because it gets crumpled when I put it back on my bookshelf.

It holds some wonderful memories that I'm thankful to have and may have otherwise forgotten had I not written them down.


This is the Gratitude Journal you'll receive, which includes the embellishment pack you see.


this week's thankful thought
How could I not include a story of Isabella's bowling match on Tuesday? She bowled a 180 after having been a bowler for just 8 weeks. Wow!!!!! We're so proud FOR her and of her.

I'm pretty sure I've shared some of these pages before, but I wanted to show how easy it is to use what scraps and bits you already have in your Gratitude Journal. I like having a few pages pre-embellished so I can just sit down and share my story.

I get it, not everyone feels the need to decorate, but it's something that makes me happy, so I do!


Don't have any paper bits or stickers? Shop the Embellishment Kits, Die Cuts, Tags and Supplies sections in the I Love It All shop to see more goodies. There are even Print At Home journaling card sets that you could use, like I did here.

Want to document your own #ilovethursdaythanks? Write down what you're thankful for, it doesn't have to be in a journal or notebook, just list it and then head on over to Instagram to post! Be sure to use the hashtag #ilovethursdaythanks so I can take a peek!

no right or wrong way
Let no one, not even yourself, tell you that you didn't do it right. There is no right, there is no wrong. Just do it. A year from now, you'll look back on your journaling and it will make you all the more thankful that you took a few minutes to write it down.
