Question: How Do You Document Memories?

I’ve always been one to keep journals, write down notes when I want to remember a moment and highlight important dates on my calendar.

One thing I love most about blogging is having an archive of how and where I was in life and in the world through the years. I can reread a post and remember feeling inspired or encourage or weak and confused about myself. I love revisiting those moments in time.

Can you relate?

I’ve been thinking more and more about documenting memories lately. After you graduate, the days move by so slowly but the years feel hyper-lapsed. So much has happened in such a short time frame. I’ve moved, I’ve met amazing people and traveled, I’ve had friends get married and new babies born in the family.

It all feels so important to capture.

Honestly, that’s part of the reason I was so keen to start a YouTube channel. I’ve watched some family and daily or weekly vloggers and always envy that they have the ability to revisit moments in time. Literally play them back whenever they want.

I’ll definitely be uploading more vlogs and peaks into my life. Not just to capture the moments for myself, but because I love sharing those moments with all of you I feel like it helps peel back another layer of who I am, in a way.

But I’d also love to hear how other people document their memories. Do you scrapbook? Keep a visual journal? I’ve seen people use planners to track memories and moments instead of appointments and deadlines, which I think is awesome.

I don’t want to miss a moment. I want a chance to revisit the memories that made me laugh til it hurt and smile uncontrollably. I want to be able to flip back and see just how far I’ve come. It’s becoming more and more important to me, and I have a feeling I’m not the only one.

How do you document your memories? Is saving moments important to you at all?

  1. I’ve been thinking about this lately, actually, that if a website went down or Facebook got hacked or anything, there would be just… nothing left. I’m not printing out photos or doing anything tangible with them – & I want to be! I’m going to start by making a photo book of my wedding photos.
