Between Me and You, Honey~Day #6 Review & Giveaway!

Just in time for Valentine's Day, this beautiful relationship keepsake journal could be yours!

When I received the Between Me and You HONEY relationship keepsake journal by Sand Dune Publishing in the mail, I thought surely I would give it to my husband, and have him fill it out for me. The longer I had the book, (and the more I flipped through the pages), the more I contemplated filling it out for him. Brian and I have been through so much together! We've been together 10 years, and married for just over 5. Many couples married for decades haven't gone through the trials of our friendship, courtship and marriage. Answering the questions and reflecting on the years before "us", really helped me to open up to my husband- on paper- for the first time since our premarital counseling. I really feel that it helped me reconnect and remember how and why we fell in love.

The book itself is not the actual gift. Sure, it's physically the gift that will be unwrapped, but the true gift is the words written inside for your special loved one. It's a gift of truth; a gift of hopes and dreams, and the gift of love, all over again. Sand Dune Publishing took it one step further and created an entire line of "Between Me and You" relationship keepsake journals to offer to Grandparents, to girlfriends, to lovers and even siblings. These journals are broken up into six different chapters concerning different phases of your personal relationship with the recipient. All of the questions you never knew how to ask, or even when to ask them- they ask them for you. It's presented in a comfortable, conversational tone so it's simple and easy for your loved one to fill out. The spiral binding allows for even more flexibility, if there's a question or a page that is irrelevant, you can simply tear it out. You can even add your own questions on the blank pages in the back!

I cannot even describe to you how much I wish that this particular line existed when my mother-in-law fell ill with cancer. There are so many things that I wish my children would have known about her, from her- she really was an incredible woman. A relationship keepsake journal such as this, would have been a fabulous way to have her true heartfelt thoughts and memories live forever.

I'm first! Woohoo! I love the Daughter journal because I hope to have a baby girl soon and it's purple! Perfect! I'd use the blank pages to write down all the prayers I prayed for her before she was born and as she grew up!! <3 Thanks for the giveaway! --Michelle, blogattoday,,a,t,(gmail)]d]o]t]c]o]m

I'd say the daughter and son books but I have three children so that's alot to take on lol! I truly love the Honey one for spouses. I think I'd ask my hubby what's the one thing you would change about me if you could? I don't know maybe that's asking for trouble ;) lol

I'd choose the grandma book for my 91 yr old (and still very active) grandmother. I have no idea what extra question I'd ask her though, I'm not good at such things, that's why I need the book LOL.

I would love to get the Honey one for my husband to fill out. I would probably ask the question of when he first knew I was 'the one'
thanks!

I would love the girl one, for me and my best friend and the first question I would ask would be why do you stick around?

I eventually want to get most of these journals. But to play along, my favorite is the Mom journal I'm actually filling one out for my baby girl to give her when she's a bit older :)
