How many ways can you say I love you? How many of those little things that matter do you remember? Well, why not make yourself a memory jar for 2014 and at the end of this year, you can open up a Pandora’s box. Instead of all the evils of the world, it will hold all the treasures of your world. You know those little things that you do for each other, just because… or those moments that were meant to remember. Get a jar. On the outside, write Memory Jar 2014, do not open until December 31, 2014. Every day fill it with a memory. Its not fair if you both don’t participate. Alright, so it doesn’t have to be every day, but just do it. Each time she gives you that special smile, or he picks a flower on his way home from work and gives it to you. Write these little things down on a little slip of paper, fold it up and place it in your memory jar. Or you could even make separate memory jars for each other. You could place something sweet, maybe just a thought, or a sentiment or something that happened. Perhaps something funny that made you laugh. Guaranteed when you open that slip of paper and read about it even months later you are going to have a good laugh once again. This could be a great way for a couple to get intimate again, or get to know one another and what makes their relationship special. So while you pop that cork on the champagne and settle in by the fire for a winter’s night cuddle open that jar and start re-living those good moments from the year before. Its even better than going out on New Years’s Eve – and it makes for a great way to start the new year. A memory jar – a sweet way to rekindle a long lived loving romance.
