Mother Hydie and daughter Carley both have a love for tradition that began generations ago. After the birth of her third child in 1999, Hydie realized that she wanted a ledger to keep track of little memories, like the one her grandparents – Nonee and Lala – had when her own parents were growing up.
Soon enough she had a ledger and began recording in it when Carley was 6 years old. The ledger filled up after 13 years of memories were recorded. To this day, Hydie reads back over the stories and is struck by the vivid memories. Hydie and Carley realized that there was something special about a ledger as compared to a photograph or album, and wanted to share that with the world. Thus, Sweet Olive Heirloom and the Heirloom Ledger were born.
The Heirloom Ledger is more than a book – it’s beautifully designed and crafted down to the last detail. The book is hardcover, wrapped in gray linen and Smyth-Sewn. When you order your ledger, it comes in a perfect gift box, the ledger wrapped in tissue and tied with twine. Oh – and book plate personalization is included so that you can add a meaningful message. All of the text in the book is written in the most delicate, gorgeous calligraphy.
You can use your ledger to jot down family stories, notes for your children, as a personal journal, to record baby’s significant moments or milestones, or as a prayer journal or guest book.
There are so many meaningful ways to use your book. Love to hear how you’d use yours! #HEIRLOOMED
