I first saw this New Year’s Jar idea on Pinterest (God Bless Pinterest!)
And I absolutely LOVED.IT
I have had such a magical, inspiring last few years. I personally have grown and changed in ways I could not have imagined.
I am pretty darn proud of ME.
However, my memory is CRAP. I know there has been many little victories along the way that I would love to remember, but they have just slipped my mind.
THEN, I saw the New Years Jar. What a kick-butt good idea!
As I research the origin of that fab idea, I find that it came from a blog called One Inch Square and a blog post from 2008. Blog author Brooke Reynolds writes about putting notes in the jar of all the cute things their kids would say so they would not forget. She has the jar on her desk and whenever she hears something she wants to make not of she just grabs a piece of whatever paper she can find and jots it down and adds it to the jar.
And that is exactly what I am going to do! The jar will sit on my desk and be available for me to jot my little notes. I think I may reserve mine just for business and personal stuff though. The really sweet part is, at the end of 2013, I can look back on all the cool victories and milestones (most of which I am sure I will have forgotten about) and it will be a sweet surprise of happy.
I think I will even date my little notes. Cool , eh?
Has anyone else ever used something like for inspiration?

Lovely idea. Would love to try it once.
I try to write in my journal every night before bed so I can preserve memories of the day, but with this jar you get the benefit of writing it down immediately before you can forget the details. 🙂
I agree! I always have good intentions of writing stuff down, but typically when I do someone has swiped my journal and crayons are hard to write with … 😉
Love this idea!
Thanks Ann! Stay funny and awesome, girlfriend.
