A Year of Great Memories

January 4, 2016

2016 is a brand new year to celebrate the best moments with friends and family. One way my family and I are making 2016 better even though we are so far away from each other is writing our best memories on a piece of paper and putting them in a mason jar. Everyone in the family has their own mason jar to decorate how they like (some are leaving their jars plain and letting the memories speak for themselves.) Personally, I decorated mine with ribbon and put index cards in everyone’s to set ideas/guidelines for how to use the jars. masonjar1 You can have your card say what ever you would like it to! I also put a list of things I hope to accomplish or am looking forward to in 2016 on the back. (16 things to be exact!)   Doing this as a family will help keep the optimism and fun throughout the whole year!   What you will need:

  1. A jar, I like to use Mason Jars
  2. A small notepad to place memories on
  3. Colorful pens or stickers! (This is just a fun suggestion)
  4. Decorating supplies such as ribbon or glass pens
  5. A year full of memories to place in your jar

    We cannot wait to see your jars and hear some of the memories you share! This is a great way to keep memories to share during a deployment while a parent is recovering from a severe injury. Focus on the good things that are happening rather than the stressful moments in life.   x0x AnnaMaria
