Have you ever started doing something and down the road been really impressed with yourself? (Not that it happens very often for me… 😛 ) Evan and I had one of these ideas on our honeymoon, no less. We made a very off-hand decision to collect ornaments from anywhere we traveled. I don’t know who had the idea or where we heard it, but ever since, that’s what we’ve been doing! And let me tell you, I have fallen in love with it.
There are so many reasons I love this system.
- It minimizes clutter.
- It is typically inexpensive.
- It doesn’t take up much room in your luggage.
- It is not time-consuming to find during your travel.
- It actually helps you reminisce on all your memories together, conveniently during the already-magical holiday season 🙂
Here are some of our favorite ornaments & memories so far!
While we are probably done traveling for a while after our last trip, it is so fun to pull out these ornaments every year and think of all the memories we’ve made together.
Do you have another amazing tradition for souvenirs?
