As a 1991 baby, a millennial, but not really one at heart, I feel my style rolls more like a gen-x. I also feel like my boomer family judges me every step of the way from the fact that I let my kids test their limits or paint apron free or the fact that I don’t force them to wear a coat to the car so that they experience the natural consequence of feeling cold. Are you rolling your eyes? Hi, Mom!
I've picked my favorite three pictures (or the three that most resemble that phase in our life) for all of 2020. Travel back with me! I wrote an essay about the past year, see the button below to read it!
These sort of memories and smells and feelings are engrained in me from holiday traditions. Now that I have my own family, I want them to have these sort of memories as well. I find that merging my own traditions with my husband's has created a really fun season for us. With Lincoln being 2 and Layla being 1, this year is finally a year that he gets it and can join in on many of our traditions.
All I have to say is thank goodness we got the pre-put together house because there is no way this guy would've sat longer than he already was. He was SO excited and I'm sure that made him a little more jittery than he normally may be!
It's NATIONAL COOKIE DAY!
I'm not a baker, but my mom sure is :) These are the entire family's favorite cookies EVER! Check out the recipe, try it, and let us know what you think in the comments! We've subbed in cherries instead of cranberries, but to be honest, it wasn't the same. We've also tried without a dried fruit and again, not the same. So much experimentation with this recipe, but the original is definitely the best!
