What if… your great-grandmother, Serena, was born in a small village in the Province of Siena, Italy. On her twelfth birthday, Serena’s father Luca presented her with a handmade journal from Florence. His birthday gift is more than merely a milestone marker; it is truly a tradition passed down for generations. You discover quickly that her father had filled all pages of the journal given to him by his father when he turned twelve. As did his father before, Luca knew that the power of the beckoning pages would support Serena and all she needed was a pen and time.
Serena’s journals are now yours. You immediately notice the handcrafted leather protecting the pages. It still feels royal and elegant with her embossed initials in the upper left corner. Every journal that followed was uniquely beautiful with only her lovely initials remaining the same.
As you discover the ebb and flow of Serena’s life, you cannot help but think about your journey. Until entrusted with her interests and insights, you had not considered which words you want to reflect the meaning of your life. As you look back upon your busy days, you realize there are mundane meetings, smartphones, children’s schedules, and disconnect.
To turn the page, you decide to purchase a journal. After a quick nod to no longer being twelve, you know you need the real thing.
