A Little Self-Reflection


My third journal is going strong…you’ve already seen a bit of it before Christmas, and I thought I’d share a bit more with you today…

DSC02045_edited-1 {one of my favorite quotes from one of the wisest of women}

A few thoughts to help me out at the beginning of this wonderful New Year…thoughts from those FAR wiser than myself…

But first—my opening page--


…just to get the ball rolling…

And a reminder from the ever-amazing C.S. Lewis:


…and this wonderfully unusual vintage photograph that inspired a little self-reflection in me…


Just a few things to start me off in the right direction as we launch into another busy, exciting, filled-with-wondrous-things year!



  1. Love your pages, they look wonderful!

  2. Oh Julie, your journal pages just keep getting more and more beautiful. Wonderful, inspiring quotes. Best wishes to you in the new year! Hugs, Debi

  7. Julie - your journal is wonderful - sue wish I could write as pretty as you do! The self reflection page is great and I love the statement that crying gives me a headache! Great way to start the New Year!!

  8. Julie your journal pages are always a treat to look at! I just love the images!

  9. These are beautiful Julie, can I copy your little roses there one will know if I try those in my journal will they? I'm still on Christmas, stopped to make that Valentine wreath now I should pick up the journal again.

  10. Your journal is so, so lovely Julie. That quote from Marjorie Hinckley is a favorite of mine too.
    Sending you wishes for all the blessings you can hold in the New Year!

  11. Your third journal -- wow, Julie -- you truly are carrying on the tradition of journaling life and thoughts just like your family has done for so very long. And one day someone will cherish and treasure your journals. A blog friend wrote a lovely article for her local newspaper about handwriting. You should check it out:
    I know you are so glad your foremothers left their writings and keepsakes for you.
    Happy new year and best wishes, Tammy
