Every year, since I was a kid, I took it upon myself to make sure my mom got her yearly diary. Over the decades, they got harder to find and ridiculously expensive ($45 each) WOW.

So what did I do? What any loving daughter would do—I made my own diary just for her. Mom then said I needed to share AND sell it on Amazon. She was right. So here it is!

A tailored diary? Yes!

Mom always said that there was never enough room to write in the smaller diaries.

I listened to the things she wanted, such as a place to write her friends' addresses and phone numbers; anniversary dates; their birthdays. Pretty soon it evolved into the diary you see. You can purchase another diary (year after year) as the year is not printed on it. I also included leap year!

It's bitter sweet now.

Mom passed away on May 12, and that's why I picked this day of the diary
to show you the inside of the diary, in the image, a little farther up the page.
