Last year I ate a jar full of gerkins, rinsed out the vinegar and washed it thoroughly. I put the jar away thinking I would need it one day for something. Sometime in early January (after I came home from spending NYE in Dubai) I grabbed a Sharpie and wrote three words on the lid. I placed it on my desk and forgot about it...
Until something good happened.
When we went to a concert we loved, I tucked the ticket into the jar.
When I got ten 5 star Amazon reviews for Shy Feet I scribbled the date and this fact on a scrap of paper and shoved it in the jar.
When we popped open a bottle of bubbly to celebrate something, I wrote the reason on the cork and put it in the jar.
And these are just the ones I remember.
Tomorrow night, over a dinner I will cook and a glass of something fizzy, NewMan and I will open up the jar and go through all of our "Good Things" from 2014.
Then I will change 2014 to 2015 and on 1st January I will start all over again.
I highly recommend doing it yourself if you're looking for an easy way to remember happy days in 2015.
