Your memoir, in the making.
The Life & Times Annuary is a living memoir for those who are rich with life experiences and short on the time it takes to capture it all in a daily journal. Instead of buckling under the pressure of keeping up a personal log day after day, the owner of this beautifully designed book will look forward to filling out just two pages each year with the highlights, and yes, even the lowlights, of the past 365 days.
Start any time, any year, in any style you choose. We’ll help guide you. For instance, share thoughts about childhood homes, starter homes, and forever homes. Family vacations and family reunions. Adventures with friends and misadventures with pets. Career accomplishments and career setbacks. New additions and cherished losses. Silly things that made you laugh, sacred things that made you cry, and all the memorable people, places and things that made you one year wiser.
This unique literary keepsake is the perfect gift for baby showers, birthdays, graduations, holidays, weddings, and retirement parties. Or maybe it’s just a gift for yourself that will someday become a gift for your great-great-great-great-granddaughter.
Future generations will learn about your life, and get to know you as an actual person instead of a random family member they’ve heard stories about. Word by word, year by year, with the Life & Times Annuary, you create your legacy.
