I fully recognize how blessed I was in 2012. And while 2013 is shaping up to be just as much work and stress (I swear the kiddos get tougher and tougher with each year), it's also shaping up to be just as exciting. And while journaling (and yes, I still journal, even at 26) helps document everything, I decided to do something extra for 2013.
For this, all I needed was a Sharpie, a plastic mason jar (since plastic holds Sharpie ink better than glass, not to mention porcelain), and some card stock.
The concept is incredibly simple: whenever something amazing, or fun, or just all-around awesome happens, I write the date and the event, fold it in half, and place it in the jar.
