Whether your summer plans involve gallivanting across the globe or chilling with your squad at home, a few summertime adventures are a given. But how exactly are we supposed to preserve our precious summer memories? Sure, we could always post a pro Instagram and collect likes like snow globes. But since we’re looking to get a little less tech-dependent — we’ve even tried quitting social media for a week — we’re writing down all of our sweet summer memories in a good ol’ fashion journal. Here are our top notebooks to fill with sunny adventures.
