Axel & Ash Journals

Thursday, February 11, 2016

Yesterday Brian and I finalized one of the most exciting wedding to-dos yet (not that deliberating white vs. ivory linens for most of Monday night wasn't exciting) — our honeymoon! We're traveling throughout the French Riviera and then hopping to Greece, and we couldn't be more excited. Traveling is by far our favorite thing to do together — we've made yearly getaways a priority since we started dating — and one of the only things we will willingly splurge on. We can't wait. 

One of my favorite things about our travels is looking back at photos, videos and Brian's journals. Before every big trip Brian buys a pocket-sized Moleskine notebook and fills it with thoughts each night we're traveling. I love how raw and thorough his entries are. It's so cool to look back and know exactly how he was feeling at certain moments. 

This year I'm joining him with a set of my own journals from Australian design duo Axel and Ash. The Bucketlist journal is filled with inspirational pictures and quotes, and more than 100 pages that invite you to write down what you want to do in your life — all of your dreams, ideas and desires. Wanderlust has slots for you to write down thoughts before, during and after ever journey, complete with a world map, beautiful photography and questionnaires to make you remember all the little highlights. Best of all, the books are so pretty, I love keeping them on my nightstand or placing them front and center on our bookshelf. 

According to Axel & Ash the journals "incite the owner to capture her story and motivate her to keep exploring and living life to the absolute fullest. When creating our books we wanted to spark a fire inside each reader to start living out her wildest dreams and really emphasize that nothing is impossible." Love that.

Journaling can feel like a bit of a pain sometimes (the last thing I want to do after walking 10 miles on vacation is write), but the payoff is so worth it. It's such an honest and sincere way to preserve personal memories. 

To get you journaling, Axel & Ash is giving away a set of journals to one lucky reader! Yahoo! Enter below! The giveaway will close on Friday, March 11. One randomly selected winner will be notified by email. Good luck!
