DIY Memory Jar

While perusing pinterest, I came across this idea and knew I had to try this for the new year.  I think it took 4 minutes total to make...and was FREE since I already had everything!
What you'll need:
  • a jar with or without a lid
  • chalk
  • a label (I used a chalkboard label from World Market)
  • writing utensil
  • paper or note cards (I cut up old unused business envelopes)
Throughout the year, write down memories that make you smile.  Something funny.  An accomplishment.  A first.  Then, on New Year's Eve, open and re-read all of the good stuff that made the year wonderful.  I have already written one quote from the hubby and documented a life event into the jar!  So excited to see what this year will bring!  Wouldn't this be fun to do with future kiddos every year around a fire with some hot cocoa, yummy snacks and some time to reflect and be thankful!  Let the traditions begin!
