#NationalFriendshipDay

1 Aug

National-Friendship-Day-2015
Tomorrow is officially National Friendship Day. I see a lot of “national” days floating around on twitter and Instagram so sometimes I wonder who made them up and why. I did a little research and found out more about National Friendship Day. The date was created in 1919 as a reminder to stay in touch with your friends and send letters. U.S. Congress recognized the day in 1935 and it is always the first Sunday in August.

While it might be a little late to send your friends letters, it’s a great reminder to let your friends know how much you appreciate them. You can shoot them a quick text, an email or call them and let them know how much they mean to you. I try to tell my friends often how much they mean to me, but this day is a great reminder to let them know.

Do you do something special for your friends on Friendship Day? Maybe a fun tradition like brunch, a painting class, a girls night out? Share in the comments below if you have something fun you do. Let them know how much they mean!

xoxo,

Summer Bucket List for Kids

4 Jun

Kids everywhere are gearing up for Summer break.  Sleeping in, hanging out with their friends, and the inevitable “I’m bored!” that makes Moms cringe.  A few years ago a friend of mine shared something with me that my kids loved.  She put together a poster board titled “Summer Fun Checklist” with ideas of things to do/accomplish over the summer.  She asked her kids for some ideas and put some of her own on it.  The goal is to complete the checklist by the end of summer.  Some people call this their “Summer Bucket List” and either way, it’s a fun way to check-off things to do with your family.

BucketList

All you need to do is search Pinterest or Google for ideas – there are plenty out there!  I like the simplicity of this one I found on howtonestforless.com.  Have you ever done a summer checklist or summer bucket list with your kids?  What “must have” activities did you include on yours?  Share in the comments below.  I’d love to hear what you and your family includes!

xoxo,
Jennifer
