DIY: Memory Jar

Memories should be made every, single day. I'm always looking for ways to make memories... I don't want to look back on my life, and remember all the nights I sat home tucked in bed with a book (though those nights are comforting and necessary). I want to look back and remember the nights I laughed so hard I couldn't breathe, or when I made a difficult decision in my life and it ended up turning out better than planned, or those days I traveled and found a new place to explore. Pictures are great, but then I saw a fellow blogger, Kristyn at Creative with Kristyn, create a memory jar , and I just knew that I had to make my own. Filling a jar with memories and then on New Year's Eve opening it up and reading about all the memories over a glass of champagne.
