the 2012 jar // abby


I have this jar.  I call it my happy 2012 jar.  I write down everything that makes me happy in the year 2012 and put in this jar.  sometimes it's big events, like driving for the first time, sometimes it's the smaller things that makes life the best ever - like the first BBQ outside, or the sunshine being out.

I think it's important to document what makes you happy or filled with joy - especially the little things.  the little things that we soon find out aren't so little.

 I'm Abby.  14 year old homeschooled girl.  I sing in the shower.  I'm really short - 5' 1".  I love to capture simplicity in my writing and photography.  Going to Hogwarts is at the top of my to-do list, and so is meeting Flynn Rider. Happy endings are the best.  I love to make people smile.  Jesus is my Savior.  Come visit me sometime.

  17. Awesome! I decided to start a similar project, but in a notebook. My goal is to write down things that make me happy a couple times a week, if not every day! <3
