ON MY BIRTHDAY keepsake book gives your child the gift of easily capturing and holding onto what they view as some of the most important events, changes, and milestones that occur from one birthday to the next, as well as a 'snapshot' of who they are as they celebrate their birthday and move forward into their next year. All books in the In this Moment™ collection feature our unique minimalistic 'logbook' format, which makes keepsaking simple and ideal for busy parents and allows
children to hold onto years’ worth of memories in one beautiful place. ON MY BIRTHDAY allows your child to fill out one log for each year up to the age of 18 and then 17 more times throughout the adult years (approximately once every 5 years up to 100). They will love to look back on how much they have grown and changed as they compare their 5th birthday entry to their 40th! or 50th!

About the Author
Care has always found unique and practical ways to capture memories. Small trinket-filled jewelry boxes that she acquired before the age of five gave way during her school years to a closet full of remembrances stuffed in boxes. When she grew older and couldn’t lug her collection with her to her dorms, she constructed yearly reflection journals to document significant events and heartfelt reflections.
As single years turned into decades, Care has treasured returning to moments of her life. She feels especially fortunate when she's able to relive them with family and good friends over a few cups of coffee.
Care’s life-long enthusiasm for seeking experiences rather than things, and the joy of remembrance and reflection of cherished memories, evolved when she became a passionate mama of two beautiful children, Sophie and Lennon. Care wanted to live “in the moment” with her family during their limited time together, but also create keepsakes of her children's special moments. Her solution would drastically simplify the annual Father's Day gift while (thinking just like a busy mama does) also document and create memories for years to come. After three years of Mama helping her daughter complete a handmade annual keepsake book for Daddy (and wishing she had one of her own!), In this Moment™ was born.
Care is deeply grateful and honored to have the opportunity to add her own energy to some of the treasured moments that make up the lives of others. It’s her sincere hope that her work will inspire the type of bonding that happens with good conversation and tradition-building, the deep, raw and honest words that tend to easily flow from the mouths of children, and the joy that comes from remembering where you started and how far you’ve come.
When she’s not working on the In this Moment™ keepsake book collection, she’s busy dreaming new ideas, spending time with the people she loves, and trying to keep the things that really matter at heart.
