On New Year's Eve each year, we take a family picture writing the numbers of the new year on our hands, and I put this picture inside a mason jar. Then through the year, we put things in the jar like movie stubs, business cards from favorite restaurants visited, ribbons and medals from races, and other memorabilia that will fit in the jar.
We now have 6 of these jars, but we had never gone through these to look at the contents of the jars. The other night, I pulled these out and we emptied them during dinnertime.
It was well worth the time to look at old pictures and relive some memories.
Good times indeed.
