“Dear Daughter,

I love you and I love journals and I love to write. You love me 🙂 and journals and writing too, so how about if we make this our journal?”

What do the rest of the pages of this thick and inviting book hold for us? Significance? Nonsense? Worries? Inspiration? I’m not certain, but I’m looking forward to finding out.
