As a newly married couple with so many exciting opportunities on the horizon, I thought it'd be a fun tradition to begin documenting each year through a Memory Jar. The idea is to write down funny stories, significant events or heartfelt moments as they happen.
- 3x5 note cards or card stock cut to size
- a collection jar or box
- felt-tip pen
Step 1: Designate your collection jar or box and place it in a well traveled area where you will see it often.
Step 2: Punch holes in each card so when the year comes to an end you can easily secure them together with binder clips.
Step 3: Add memories through out the months, then, on New Years Day, make a date with your loved ones to flip through and reminisce 2012's Highlights!
