Traditional anniversaries: It’s my 3 rd wedding anniversary

My husband and I have been married for 3 years. This year I wanted to do something based on traditions, traditionally leather is the gift you would give your spouse back in the day.

A few ideas that I came up with was a keychain, wallet, belt, coasters or a bag.Images courtesy of Pinterest.

I love this idea because it seems so masculine and unique.

Now if my husband wants to show up with some Sunflowers or Crystal /glass, I would be ecstatic!

I love to practice traditional things especially when it is something that I can pass through my family.

How I choose my wedding date:

My parents were married August 14, 1980 they would have been married for 38 years. As a tribute to my late mother, I decided to use their wedding day as a permanent reminder of the love that my parents shared. My parents were full of love and guidance that I channel every day.

I love you, mommy and daddy, thank you for showing me what love is!

To my husband:

If marriage was easy everyone would be doing it, I am so happy that God has put you in my life! Happy Anniversary!!!

Creating Holiday Traditions

Christmas Wreath

The holiday season is among us , you may have a young up and coming family or a well experienced family ; my point for saying this is we all love traditions. I am a huge traditionalist especially now that I have my own family. I love the traditions that my parents bestowed upon me! I really wanted to add to the or put my own spin on things.

Just this past Thanksgiving my family had our own Thanksgiving/ Friendsgiving without our entire family. This Christmas we won’t be doing Elf on the Shelf, I really wish that we could but I figured my daughter wouldn’t understand the concept and the Elf would become her favorite toy instead. We do intend to leave milk and cookies for Santa!

Here are a few traditions to try with your family:

  • Watching Christmas Movies

I’ve been encouraging the Christmas movies because I want my daughter to understand who Santa is and that he isn’t scary.

Santa Claus

  • Go See Santa and Take a Picture

We took Mariah to see Santa last year and she did very well, but this year not a chance. She was not feeling Santa at all! We even sat with Santa to make it easier. I think we can chop this up to her needing a nap. So, make sure that your little one is well rested and dressed for the occasion.

  • Dress for the Occasion

I think it is so cute to have matching pajamas or t-shirts to wear for picture day or the holiday festivities.

  • A Delicious Family Treat/Santa Treat

Recently, I attended an event at church for Friendsgiving and I tasted one of the most delicious cookies EVER!

S'more Cookie

This S’Mores Cookie was beyond delicious and it has definitely made the list of cookies for Santa. I found a delicious recipe on Pinterest for a S’mores Cookie .

I hope that my family traditions give you ideas for your family!

From my family to yours Happy Holidays!!!
