There are so many traditions we create as families; from how we celebrate holidays to how we start each morning and end each day. Whether grand or simple, traditions connect us and form our identity. Each tradition creates a thread in our fabric that our children will tug on each time they re-tell the story, reminisce with their siblings, repeat with their own children.
“It’s peanut butter jelly time, peanut butter jelly time, peanut butter jelly time…”

The last day of our Italian trip this past Spring was spent in Bologna, Italy. It was the coldest and the rainiest day of our entire trip.
Last year we hosted a Friendsgiving to raise money and awareness for No Kid Hungry. This year the girls got dressed up and turned plain, white buttercream cakes into towering artistic creations. While the girls decorated the moms donated. Every $10 raised can feed a child up to 100 meals.
Jordan Pond is a glacier formed tarn. The waters are crystal clear and serve as a water supply for the nearby town of Seal Harbor. A 3.6 mile hike around the shoreline gives you flat trails, bridges, rocky climbs and a man-made bog walk to protect the most fragile areas. The constant change in terrain coupled with the views kept us all entertained and inspired. Our hike ended with popovers at Jordan Pond House, the only full service restaurant in Acadia National Park. The tradition of popovers and tea dates back to the 1890s.
