Way back in the day ladies who were growing up and on their way to marriage had Hope Chests. I'm sure most of you have heard of these, but for those who have not, Hope Chests were chests filled with linens, dresses, tableware etc. basically the dowry of a young woman.

My boyfriends sister just got engaged and so for a present I decided to put a twist on this old custom. I made her a Hope Journal. Its just a regular journal, but I wrote her name, 'Hope Journal' and a little explanation in the front.

She can use it to write down any ideas/thoughts/wishes that she would want to remember for her house after the wedding. She can share it with her fiance when they are planning their life together or keep it to herself as a secret dream.

I hope she likes it!

That really is a sweet idea. You could give that to anyone moving onto a new phase in their lives. Great idea!
