I love memories, and capturing memories. I love creating memories, and recording them. That's one big benefit I've found from social media and the way I use the internet--I can use my instagram, facebook, and google calendar to find out so many things that I would otherwise forget about.
Often I berate myself for not doing better at keeping a diary, or a "one line a day" journal (which I do want to do) or blogging just about life. But the truth is, I am capturing a lot of the moments that I experience, and I have things to look back on and remember. I have ways to trigger that joyful, happy nostalgia feeling, that are pretty easy compared to the olden days of digging through boxes for damaged photos (...though that is a pretty great way to experience nostalgia!).
And the Holidays are coming! Such a fun season all about celebrating the life we've been living, given to us by a life that was born in a manger and given as a gift for all, so that we may all have life, and life abundantly. Here's to a Christmas season full of the best kinds of nostalgia, friends!
