    This was bought as a 80th birthday gift by my children for my mom. She was very excited to receive it as she had wanted to write things down but was having trouble getting started. The book is organized in a way that can help stimulate the mind, bringing back great memories that can be recorded for generations. My children are excited to help Grandma fill the book out.

        We bought this for my Father-in-law as a 94th birthday present. We should have gotten it when it was first for sale. He loved it! Our kids can now get answers to all of the questions that they did not even think to ask but the answers will bring them closer to knowing their Grandpa. We live far from each other and this book has opened conversations that never got started in the past. Thank you for offering such a cool product!

        Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

        I got this as a gift for my grandma on a recent holiday and had no idea how much fun she would have filling this out. She loved the prompts that brought her down memory lane, and she enjoyed filling it out so much that she asked me to send one to her sister. She's been adding photos and everything - our family can't wait to read it together!

          I bought this for my mom who has a rich history and has never owned a journal to keep track of everything. It's nice to see it inspire her to remember everything she can and it lets me know more about her- even when I though I knew it all!
