I need a memory jar so I can remember.
Currently life is happening so fast that I am striving to find ways to slow it down a bit so I can savor these moments. I woke up on Sunday, almost sad that I only have 5 weeks left of being engaged. I want to slow down the weeks and really allow myself to be grateful for these moments that only happen once in a lifetime (now that I think about it, all moments only happened once in a lifetime). The weeks are going by so fast that I can’t even remember what I’ve done because there has been so much to accomplish. I’ve decided I am going to start a memory jar this week. I will buy a mason jar, put the date 2013 on it, and then I will write down little memories from throughout the week. On my first year anniversary, I will open up the jar and revisit all the amazing moments of the first year of marriage. That will also make me stop to think about what I am grateful for and give me an opportunity to savor the great memories.
I love this quote below "Cherish the value of a moment before it becomes a memory."
