Olivia found a cute idea on Pinterest to take the place of a guest registry at a shower.
Every guest writes a little note on a stone and places it in a jar.
We couldn't find stones, so we changed the idea a bit and used flat, glass beads instead.
The messages were short, but the memory jar still turned out sweet.
We added a candle for a little touch of light.
I think it will be sweet sitting on my soon-to-be nephew's dresser as a memory of the love shared at his baby shower.
This is a couple of photos of my brother....almost 40 years ago!
My brother, Cy, writes his own little note of love to his coming son!
I can't wait to see Cy as a daddy!!
My dad (Papaw) wrote a note of love too!
In this day of technology and busy schedules, I'm thankful for ideas like this that cause the world to slow down and think about the power of just a couple words.
I'm thankful that just as in Bible times stones were a way of signifying a powerful moment,
we can use stones today to create a visual reminder of a very special event.
I wanted to share this in case you are planning a little event and would like to try something just a little different.
Have a happy Monday and a wonderful week!
