Brady’s Journal

A lot of people don’t know that my husband is an amazing artist. His talent stretches from huge canvases in acrylic to small pen sketches. One of the things he has been doing for 16 years is a daily journal. Every day, and I mean every single day, he has illustrated our family’s special moments. Our daily routine to even the bigger moments in our life, like our children’s birth. It’s sort of a scrapbook of memories that I thought I would share a little with you.

One more reason to love Brady. How wonderful for your children and their children to have.

Barb (you know me as MPGFansite)

Sweetest thing ever. I am so impressed. I’ve been doing a 365 photo project with my kids (I’m a portrait photographer), and it is challenging at times to remember. I cannot imagine taking the time to do what you do everyday. Very inspiring!

Courtney

What journal does he use? I have been struggling to find a journal that is easy to take with me.

I’ve never commented before (though I do love your blog and cooking show) but I love this so much – will Brady ever consider selling his art? I’d be a customer!

Love this idea. I have been writing daily since I was 16 so about 30 years now. Just a few lines about my day. I love the idea of illustrations Please share the journal your husband uses? Looks like a nice size. I used to do the 365 day photo project too – it is lots of fun!

That’s amazing! I also love to journal and this will encourage me to keep writing! Love the cooking show also! Write on!

Jennifer

Love the journals! Love that your hubby does this…can you imagine your children reading these when they are adults! how very cool!
My daughters, and myself, are fairly crafty people as well, and I was wondering what kind of journals those are that he uses….it’s such a great idea!

Grace

These are amazing! It was such an inspiration to see–also a tease because I want to see more pages. He should consider a journal flip through video that are becoming so popular on YouTube.

Tina

That’s truly amazing. I journal but in writing only. The way he illustrates is awesome. Thank you for sharing!

Jenn

Hi! Can you tell me where the I LOVE US book can be found? Thanks!

Deb
