a special keepsake for mothers and daughters :: me & you book giveaway

Hi everyone!

I have been wanting to share this most gorgeous book and keepsake idea with you!

The Me & You Book.
Created by Nicolle who lost her mother at the very young age of 7, the Me & You book is intended to be a place to gather memories, anecdotes, dreams and hopes for you to share with your daughter so she will always have this beautiful keepsake about you, her mother.

Nicolle has created a gorgeous keepsake book filled with pages and pages of prompts for you to put pen to paper and fill in with your answers, your story. 

I have to admit I got a little teary went I went through the book the first time. I love this idea!

There are pages for you to record 'mum's family tree' and 'dad's family tree' and 'our family tree'.

Then there are chapters for 'Mum' - you - to fill in about you when you were growing up right through to career and work and motherhood.

There are chapters to fill in about your daughter, about her as a baby, right through to highschool and the years after as a young woman as well as chapters for Dad to fill in too, where he can record some of his own history and childhood as well as memories and thoughts of his daughter. 

And some of my most favourite pages include ideas like passing down your favourite recipe and many more prompts to help you record and share your story, hopes, dreams and thoughts.

This is one my my most favourite quotes of all time - Memories are our greatest inheritance. Oh how I wish I knew more about my grandmothers and my great grandmothers. I would have loved a glimpse into the amazing women that they were. What their world was like. How they met their husbands. What their dreams were for their own daughters.

And what a beautiful opportunity this could be to learn more about your own mother. I would love to have my Mum's legacy recorded here especially as she has been unwell for over 20 years now and her health continues to decline. 

The thought of how much it would mean to me to have this kind of keepsake about my mother and her life also just solidifies for me the need to do this for my own daughter Chloe. One day this book will mean so much to her.

The Me & You book is truly beautiful and comes in a sturdy keepsake box. It's very heavy and a good size, the pages have ample space for your to write to your hearts content. 

And for those of us who have sons (I have two!), there is a Me & You book for Son's coming this year and I'm so excited about it's release. 
Our boys are just as deserving of a most gorgeous book of love and history as our girls and I will be sure to share when it is available!


I am also so excited that one of you lovely readers could win your very own copy of this beautiful Me & You book!

All you have to do is enter using the rafflecopter widget below :o}
Good luck! x

  2. I hope my daughter knows that I had no idea what my life would be like as a teenager, that I had no direction, no goals, and even though I didn't even settle until I was in my mid 20's I still turned out alright. It is alright, there is plenty of time.

  5. My mum made me a book very similar to this for my 21st. My 6 year old daughter & I often go through it together and she loves to see photos of me when I was young and listen to the stories nanny has written. It is something that I have always intended on doing for my daughter too

  6. I would love for my daughter to know how grateful I am that she made me a mummy. I want her to know that I dreamt of the day I would have my own daughter and that I will always be there for her.

  7. I hope my daughter will know that her mother loves her. That the hours spent playing dress ups, mini kitchen and reading stories was to watch her smile and grow, and to know that she is, and always will be, loved.

  9. I hope my 6 year old daughter will always have a sense of security in knowing that she is an important part of our family, which includes (currently) 4 generations of women who are a big part of her life. We are so lucky to be learning from those with years of stories and experiences, including a Great-Grandmother who is 97 years old.

  44. I hope she knows how much I love her and her two sisters, so much so that I overcame my biggest fear in life. At the age of almost 33, I bit the bullet and got driving lessons, to overcome my fear of driving. After a few months of lessons, I got my licence on my first attempt. I want my girls to know that they were my inspiration and reason for overcoming my fear.
