From the ages of six to twenty, I kept a journal in which I faithfully recorded daily events and musings.

I’ve fallen out of the habit the past few years, but I still like to keep a physical journal when I have the urge to express myself on paper.

I purchased a small, black Moleskine notebook last year for this purpose. As a testimony to how inconsistently I’ve been writing the notebook is less than half full!

What I love about black notebooks is their simplicity and elegance. I really like this notebook, and the keepsake pocket at the back is a huge bonus!

Do any of you still keep physical journals? What kind of notebooks do you like best?
