I met the love of my life today...but it costs forty-nine dollars!
Look how beautiful! I went to Barnes and Nobel today, because my old journal only has two pages left. It's only had two pages left for the past few days because I don't want to finish it until I have a new one! So today I went to go look. In most cases, I am intimidated by new jounrals...this is the first time I have ever finished one and it took me two years to do so! So it's a big commitment for me. I want one I'll love looking at and will be easy to close and write in. I don't want it having dark lines so I can't occasionally draw, but no lines with my handwriting is not a good match either! The large journals with 500+ pages are just so huge and would be a decade commitment for me! But this beauty is perfect! it's the same size as my Bible so it fits good in hand. It has greek imprinted so it reminds me of the new testament. The clasp is amazing and isn't an annoying wrap around that comes undone, but closes oh so nicely. It is a smooth leather so nice to the touch, not a rough leather that is scratchy and turns one away from journaling. It is inviting...it wants me!
So please tell me I'm crazy and shouldn't spend 50 bucks I don't have on this journal. I stood in there for 40 minuates and after looking at the price on this one, I couldn't find another journal I was willing to commit to.
...journals intimidate me!
