Since the new year is a great time to capture Moments that Matter, AND get ORGANIZED, I’’ve picked a word each day that we can all capture with our camera phones to help us photo journal these joyous moments, AS WELL AS a phrase a day to help stay ORGANIZED. Share them or keep them for yourself, but enjoy the moment!
