What is the best way to remember something? Last year sometime in September I saw an idea on Pinterest of a memory jar. Why I didn’t think of that before, don’t know, but I shared the idea with Dina about writing down the best moments and putting them in a jar. One afternoon Dina surprised me with a glass jar on my desk and since then we’ve been adding memories to it on a regular basis. On January 1st we took the jar to one of our favorite coffee shops and read together all the moments we’ve added in the last few months. We may or may not have been somewhat disruptive to the coffee drinkers around us, but we sure had a blast, a lot of laughs, and many ooh and ahhs. Even with all the picture taking, writing down things happened to be the best way to remember our year.
