In the new year, instead of only sharing OLD memories on Facebook from years gone by, I want to be making NEW memories. I want to do something MEMORABLE with my family and loved ones in the upcoming year, and in the years to come. I may not be able to be extravagant every week or every month, but I want to start doing something every year that my wife and children will remember and talk about the rest of their lives. I should have started this years ago, but as I get older the necessity of making memories with my kids is becoming more important.
When I was eight years old, we took a family vacation, driving from Florida to California, camping along the way. None of us had a cell phone to distract us or keep us busy, and we were not connected to the internet or texting our friends. I don’t have any digital pictures of that vacation on my computer, but I can still remember it well because it was a memorable trip. I want to make those kinds of memories with my family, beginning this upcoming year!
