Last year I saw this fun little project somewhere online and decided to try it! It's the Jar of Awesome! Anytime something awesome happens, you just write it down and stick it in the jar. It's just a fun way of recording the amazing things in life you don't want to forget! So anyway...it's now the end of the year (ok one more day but I couldn't wait any longer) and I got to open and read about my last year! So many fun things...so many blessings.

After going through these it reminded me of other things I wish I had put in. It's all good. It was the first year I did this, so sometimes it was hard to remember to do it. This year I'll be more deliberate with it. Also, I am going to put the dates on every slip of paper. SO FUN! You should definitely try it! It's such an amazing way to review your blessings at the end of the year.
