Frist Family Tradition

Hello my people!

I just love this time of year. After the start of college football and Halloween comes, it just seems like the holidays keep rolling in. My favorite part about this season is how often we are with family. I mean, truthfully, we are with our family every weekend. And some weekdays. Okay, so basically we see our family every day. BUT, something about this time of year just gives me that mushy feeling in my heart. Maybe it's the fact that all families everywhere are gathering. Maybe it's all of the giving and serving people do during this time. Whatever it is, I love it.

I know I have so much to be thankful for and this time of year always reminds of that. So, I decided to start a tradition in our little family that I hope will stick around for all the years to come. As a little kid during the holidays you're typically on the receiving end of everything. At Halloween adults give you candy. During Thanksgiving people are cooking for you. At Christmas you are the main one receiving gifts. I want Bentley to grow up knowing how important it is to give to others and how appreciative we need to be when others give to us. I don't want her age to limit her ability to give back.

Giving doesn't have to be something tied to financial ability. No matter if its baking something, doing a chore for a neighbor, or serving by volunteering somewhere. You are always capable of giving back. So this year Bentley and I (mainly me) are going to bake for others. I really enjoy baking and especially for other people to try. I always try to cater meals towards the guest I am having over so that it is to their liking. Or if I know a famliy member wants something specific I try to make it for them. You could say food is my love language.

The first person we are baking for is my sister's co-worker, Mrs. Judy. Without even having met her yet, she was the very first person to give me a gift when I was pregnant. And that was just the first of presents that she got for Benny. She has been so sweet to my little family and my older sister. We baked her pumpkin chocolate chip bread that we are delivering to her at work today. It was supposed to be on Halloween, but Bentley got her 2 month shots so we weren't able to. Better late than never, though, right? Ha.

Comment, email, or DM me any family traditions you and your family have! I love getting inspiration for ones to start in my family. Plus, I would love to hear from you guys!

Goodbye for now lovelies
