This was the best gift

By 

from Indianapolis, IN

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

This was the perfect gift to my grandmother! My entire life she has talked about writing down all of her stories for us but never got around to it. She was so excited because this book helps take some of the guess work out of it, because of it being split up into sections it helps give her a place to start. Wonderful gift I highly recommend.
