The beginning of a new year offers a natural occasion for reflecting on the past and planning for the future. This year, preserve tokens of the symbolic day in a first-day book or a party album. The resulting collection of written messages, photographs, and other mementos will serve as a tangible record of your New Year's celebration and more; to create an unfolding narrative, leave your book unfinished, and continue to add to it throughout the coming year.
