Jar of Awesome 2016


This is my third year doing a Jar of Awesome! I did a much better job this year keeping track of smaller things... although I definitely noticed that I was slacking towards the end of the year. I didn't do quite as much in November and December for various reasons (I had a hysterectomy on December 6th, so the whole month was fairly uneventful after that). Either way, I'm blown away at all the fun, the accomplishments, and the blessings! Amazing! If you don't do something like this, I highly recommend it. Such a fun and uplifting tradition!
