A great idea for year end party! Have everyone write one at the beginning of the evening - What was your favorite memory this year and then share them at the close of the party.

The 'how to' post if we decide to make that 40 sign.

Love this - for their dad's 70th birthday they mailed stamped/addressed postcards to 70 of his friends/family members and asked them to write their funniest memory of him. he received the postcards all month long. so simple, so wonderful.

"50 Memories for 50 Years" I "borrowed" this from a pin I found on Pinterest a few months ago. I did this for my husband's 50th birthday, recruiting MEMORIES from family, friends, former neighbor's, co-workers, former students and employees. My husband LOVED it. He told me this was the best gift he's ever received!!

Cute gift! Originally for a 60th birthday party where 60 friends and family are contacted and each write a letter of a memory shared with the recipient. Could also work for other b-days and holiday gifts.
