When I saw this memory jar idea, however, it seemed simple enough to keep up with, and also a very rewarding project come the end of these twelve months. So, as the end of Christmas break neared, I asked my mom to help me find a jar. I told her to pose no questions, and that she would soon see what the contents of this jar would be. She was puzzled to say the least, but chose to humor me anyway. So, here's the big reveal! What lies inside is shreds of paper recording the details of noteworthy moments from this year. We're just now approaching the one-quarter mark of 2012, and it's already well over halfway full. While this may pose problems in the future, it's a sure sign of an already exciting and needless to say, memorable, year.
