Memories in a Jar

I've been searching high and low for way to capture the memories from year to year. The blog is great, of course, for those real time moments and achievements like running, but what about the every day little things?

Then I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it would be great to begin a year of memories at the stroke of midnight on New Years Eve.


All you need is a large jar with a lid, and scrap paper {and a pen, of course}.

Then, simply write down one thing every day for the duration of the year. It can be a memory, something cute or funny that your children did, a photo of a special time or something that you are thankful for. Write the dates on everything so you can be taken back to that exact moment in time.

It's about living in the moment and soaking it all in.

On New Year Eve 2014, pop open the champagne and read your notes.

Happy New Years!!
