Family Memory Time Capsule

The Family Memory Time Capsule is such a wonderful activity for your entire family.  You can Pinterest it up if you want, or “dress it down” to fit your family’s style.  The point is to capture everyone’s favorite memories, thankful thoughts, and any other creative ideas, in a Family Time Capsule.

Then, on New Years Eve, during your family celebration, pass around the Mason Jar, and take turns reading your family memories from that year.  It’s a great way to remember the year, while welcoming the next.

The possibilites for customization are endless! Here’s how I put ours together…

4th of July Fireworks

I just so happen to love, love, LOVE the 4th of July.  Here’s my recipe for having the most Epic 4th of July ever!

Ever since I was a little girl, I loved celebrating Independence Day.  We did the same traditions year after year…go to the 4th of July parade in the morning, have a cookout with family afterwards, enjoy playing outside, & watch fireworks in the evening.

Seems simple, right?  Sometimes the best memories in life don’t require a lot of time & money. This is why I love having traditions and sticking to them year after year.  Sure, a little variety never hurt anybody, but being able to look back to traditions that made my life a happier one is priceless to me.  And that is why we follow some of these same traditions still to this day.
