Beautiful Idea

Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

I would describe our families as one of the closest families ever. I would also make a general comment that husband and wives know each other better than their kids know them, even though my husband and I spend most of our time together. My husband and I have been married for 27 yrs, my folks 52 yrs. What a terrific gift to give to your children to help them know you so much better. Is my dad going to bring up things that hurt his feelings or was a proud day so long ago? No, we usually focus on current events and future plans. I bought both my parents one and an additional one for my husband to give to his son. You cannot put a price on the content. I love my family so much, these books are invaluable. My husband has a hard time expressing his feelings, so this is a treasure his boy will have for a lifetime and can pass down. Very emotional. Buy one, you won't regret it
The books are well made.

      GREAT BIRTHDAY GIFT

      By 

      from Point Pleasant, NJ

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

      My best friend retired and turned 60 simultaneously. She and her husband love to travel, she's a wonderful photographer, and had a wonderful career. We met at work, so I often ask her, "Do you remember . . .?" But she's beginning to forget some hysterical experiences. I'm hoping this will help her remember and appreciate how wonderful her life has been and will continue to be.

      Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

      I loved the idea of this journal so much I decided to "bite the bullet" and get it. I feel the price is really steep, but it's hard to find many alternatives. I plan to try to get my parents to write in it...
