Recording Memories in a Modern Memory Book by AMK Design Shop
I will always remember the first time you looked into my eyes. I will always remember your first laugh, your first step, your first word. I’ll remember your smile on your first day of school. And I will always remember the drawing you made me, and how special I felt that you knew my favorite color. I will always remember. At least I hope I will…
And if I can’t, and time begins to take those memories away, I won’t have to worry. Because I meticulously stored those memories here, right here… for you and I to come back to, time and time again.
Growing up, I always remember my mom pulling out milestone books, recording memories of every cherished event. And it didn’t take long for me to start cherishing them too. I knew when I had kids of my own, that it was very important for me to record their school years, just as my mom had done.
It’s a societal norm to record the first year and the BIG milestones. And some even record the moments leading up to the birth. But life gets busy as the family grows, and we stop recording memories.
Today, our phones have replaced the traditional memory book. They are quick to pull out and easy to snap a pic or video. But then they stay there… They are not printed off, and there is no dialogue beside them to give context to the next generation looking back.
When I found AMK Design Shop and The School Days modern memory book, my face just lit up. Finally something that I can use, just like my mom, to contextualize some of their brightest years! As I flipped through the pages, I began to think back on my own childhood. It’s such a great reminder that these years are going to fly by much faster than I’ll want them to. I can’t believe I’ll be putting my oldest first day of Kindergarten picture in this book in a weeks time…
As you can see, this book has everything you’ll ever want to record. One of my favorite features of this modern memory book is its simplistic monochromatic esthetic. I can either let my child color it for a fun project, or I can keep it black and white – using it as a modern decor element in my child’s bedroom.
Recording memories and adding in projects from his Preschool years, Tristan began to tell me the stories behind creating each one.
If recording memories in a memory book isn’t for you, try a question and answer book like the one pictured. It’s a fun way to see how their answers grow and mature with them through the years.
A journal I keep in the living room, also acts as a memory book. Every time the kids say something funny, or something happens that I want to remember, this journal is in arms reach to quickly jot it down.
If your looking for a way to capture moments in time, AMK Design Shop has you covered with a modern memory book for every life’s milestone.
