I have always been a collector. As a child I had an awesome sticker collection! I carried my little unicorn sticker book around everywhere. The puffy and scratch and sniff stickers were my favorite. Now that I am an adult I collect vintage cameras and scales, scrapbook supplies (still collecting stickers), picture frames, owls and lots of other stuff. But one of my favorite things to collect is memories. How does one collect memories?
In a rusty, old jar of course.
I collect recital tickets, movie stubs, hotel key cards, and concert tickets. Each one of these seemingly meaningless pieces of paper is a memory. They represent time spent together as a family seeing Harry Potter, an amazing U2 concert that my husband and I went to, our trip to Disneyworld in June to see my daughter dance down Mainstreet in Magic Kingdom and so much more.
This memory jar is one of the things I would save if my house were on fire. After my family and my external hard drive that is!
