Topics covered since last update:

  • Happiness Journal: Writing samples for the Visconti Rembrandt
  • Tea Journal: Afternoon Tea at the Banff Springs Hotel with my sister
  • Pink Sheffield Journal: I haven’t used this journal in a very long time but I started a healthy eating plan this week and wanted to write about my motivation. I’ve always loved the color of this journal and it was like falling into a comfortable armchair. Hopefully it will keep me motivated!

Until next week, happy writing!
