Hello! How is your Summer going my friends? Ours is going great. Busy, but great.
For those that follow along either on here or through Instagram, often see us here, there and everywhere. It is true, we do a lot. We are a family of makers and adventurers. Regardless of where we are or what we're doing, I tend to think we are a family very similar to you. The hubs and I are busy working parents. We want what is best for our kids and trying to raise them with character and smarts and balance our time providing for them and spending quality time with them. For us, its about making those moments we are together as a family matter. Who else needs a reminder of that? Just me?
Meal time is an important time of the day. Its a time to reconnect at the end of the day and talk and have fun. I don't know about you, but after a long work day, especially in Summer, the last thing I want to do is slave away in the kitchen to make dinner. Such a conundrum right? You want the meal time, but your don't want to spend hours making it. Well its time like this, I give myself a break.
I throw a Bon Appétit™ Pizza in the oven, pour the hubs and I a glass of wine and catch up with the kids. Good food, that only requires you throwing it into the oven, and the rest of the time reconnecting.
- What did you do today?
- What did you learn today?
- What is your favorite part of today?
The best part of this, is that not only does it free you up from slaving to make the dinner, but it also frees you up from all the clean up after dinner too. WIN WIN. Which then leaves your time for a family walk, play time in the yard, or one of our favorites....Family game night.
While I know that every night is not this easy, its about making the most of the moments you have. Happy Summer!
