When I heard about these Sand Dune Between Me and You Family Keepsake Journals, I loved the sound of them right away!
There are currently 15 versions (journals for all the people you love). Inside each journal are fun, thought-provoking, sometimes humorous questions. Give them to the people you love and they are returned with handwritten responses. You then have a great keepsake to cherish. Many parents use them to collect really personal memories for their children from GRANDMA and GRANDPA. Fill one out for your kids to reflect on some day, or give one to your own parents and learn things like what your dad really wanted to be when he grew up, or what your mom remembers about her teenage years. A more personal, heartfelt gift would be hard to find.
Right away, I thought of my grandmothers. There are lots of things I don’t know that I feel I should know and I would love to have the answers recorded so that I could keep them and share my memories of my grandmothers with my kids. I received one copy of the Gramma Journal to review and I was very pleased with it. I liked how they asked questions that encouraged sharing of important meaningful things and how the journal also had word to help jog the memory of the person filling out the questions. I also liked that even in just giving the journal to my grandmother, she knows that I love her and value her experiences and want to preserve them to share with my kids. I wish I could have given them to my grampas too but it is too late now. That is why these books appeal to me so much- they encourage you to do want you may not otherwise think of doing but will wish you had done!
One lucky reader will get to pick one Sand Dune Keepsake Journal. Give one to the people you care about most. Each hardcover, spiral-bound book contains 35 – 45 fun-to-ask and fun-to-answer questions. You get your journal back
with handwritten responses you’ll cherish forever. ($15 value)

I did receive a journal in the hopes that I would share my honest opinions. I did not receive any monetary compensation and the opinions expressed are my own.
