Before Your Story
A Simple Approach to Autobiographical Scrapbooking, from Birth to Adulthood
There are milestone events in life, such as marriage and motherhood, that divide us permanently into a "before" and an "after." It's easy to become so immersed in the after—the glorious here and now—that our "befores" rarely appear in our scrapbooks.

her this book and say: "Before your story, there
