I bought this as a gift for my best friend who had just become a grandmother for the first time. I told her she needed to start writing her story for the grandkids! She loved it and couldn't wait to start using it!

    I purchased three of these. I kept one and gave the other two as gifts. The recipients absolutely LOVED this and thought it was the perfect gift. Both said it was unlike anything they've been given before.

    Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

    Saw it online and thought this was an excellent way to keep track of memories. Handwritten memories. There are a lot of things to fill in so I imagine it'll take some time but that's part of the fun.

    Gave this to my mom for Christmas, since she has been writing family stories for a few years. She thought it was great, and I think it will be a wonderful thing to have stories from her life in her own handwriting.

        Awesome journal. Gave this to my grandmother-in-law as a gift and she loved it. I only wish there had been more blank pages! Her life - like many others - has not followed the "traditional" track, and I think it would be great if people had more room to track how unique their own experience has been.

        This was a gift for my mom. I ordered it in plenty of time for Christmas, but started getting status emails that said it wiuldn't arrive until the 27th. To my surprise- it then arrived on the 24th.

        Mom says it is a very nice quality book and she thought the organizatiin and questions asked are really neat.
