Like everyone, Wade Forbes and Megan Jaffer met at a time in their lives where they were focused on being great partners to their spouses, great parents to their kids, and succeeding at their career, among many other things. They happily shared these moments of success with each other over coffee. But…like often happens in life, the time of recalling rewarding moments and exchanges quickly dissipated due to the pace and sheer volume of other things that got in the way of those memories. They invite you to alter this trend and embark on a journey of excitement, reflection, and to practice the act of capturing happiness…all the little things that add up to something great. Imagine what would happen on your worst day if you could open to a page that reminded you of your best? How would it feel to know that you can literally string all the good days together as often as you need to? This journal is the place to begin.
Wade Forbes has been drawing since he was a young child. A career in the arts didn’t quite materialize in college and after pursuing theater, teaching, and a career in cyber security, he’s finally back to where he feels most comfortable – drawing everyday. His love for art is matched only by a love for his family and the outdoors.
