I’ve been listening to podcasts from Food Blogger Pro – the team of Bjork and Lindsay from Pinch of Yum. I’ve enjoyed Lindsay talking about the traditions behind the food that she loves to cook, photograph, and share with so many people. What does that have to do with me, you ask?
It made me realize that I bring traditions from my family but I also have traditions that I’m creating with the P and our sons. I’m old fashioned at heart. I like knowing that there are certain things that I can depend on. We will have celebrations for certain events. I’m not married to the way we celebrate, but I love creating traditions and realizing that our sons will bring our traditions with them to their families one day. So I’ve created this space to share our family’s traditions with your family. Enjoy!
Back to School Party: Family Traditions: I love to celebrate back to school. It always tugs at my heart to know that my boys are growing up and moving up at school. But it also makes me really really proud. They are growing into fine young men who I love dearly and also genuinely like and enjoy spending time with.
Fig & Prosciutto Pizza: Family Traditions: Food is so often part of any family’s traditions whether they realize it or not. Making our own pizzas has become one of our family favorites!
