I recently read a blog post from Elena Square Eyes that made my heart flutter.
Last year she kept track of all of the good things that happened to her in 2013 and blogged about it at the end of the year. She has a cute glass jar to hold the slips of paper commemorating all of the good things that happen to her.
I decided to be thrifty, honour my roots, and reuse an old yogurt container. It’s pretty plain for now. Perhaps I’ll find some construction or wrapping paper somewhere over the next 12 months to give it some sort of decorative flair.
In the meantime, I’ve discovered my first entry for my makeshift jar: Amelia.
She was born a few weeks ago and is my first niece. I can’t think of a better way to begin 2014.
What does your 2014 jar of good things look like?
