Hola Bloggers, Hope you're all having a restful Sunday. Sundays are slowly becoming one of my favorite days of the week. Over the past year, my grandparents actually moved here from Canada and now live in an apartment 2 minutes away from my family's home. Since then, we've made it a family ritual to have lunch with them every Sunday afternoon after church. It's so fun for my grandma too because she loves spending all morning in the kitchen, preparing the most scrumptious foods for us to enjoy. When we go we usually just spend the entire afternoon lounging around their tiny 1 bedroom :) All 6 of us. Usually because we're so stuffed from the amazing Persian food, we will all pass out in one corner of the room and take a good old cat nap. I love that it's become tradition for us. I live for family traditions. Not only that, it's just been something I've taken for granted so many years... actually having a set time for "Family Time" has been such a blessing. When I was younger I was always made fun of because I'd always be the one leaving to go home for family time after church, instead of staying to hang out with my friends. It was always so annoying to me but every since I was in college and now afterward, I see what a blessing it is. At the end of the day, family is all you have. The only constant, the only supporters that you have 100% through the good, bad, and the ugly. I feel so honored that my parents instilled these values in me from such a young age, because now I'm going to pass those along to my own kids and also keep these traditions alive.
What are some of your family traditions? I think I'm going to do a blog post listing some of ours now that I think about it!
