The Family Memory Time Capsule is such a wonderful activity for your entire family. You can Pinterest it up if you want, or “dress it down” to fit your family’s style. The point is to capture everyone’s favorite memories, thankful thoughts, and any other creative ideas, in a Family Time Capsule.
Then, on New Years Eve, during your family celebration, pass around the Mason Jar, and take turns reading your family memories from that year. It’s a great way to remember the year, while welcoming the next.
The possibilites for customization are endless! Here’s how I put ours together…
This is the blog post to end all blog posts. Here I will share with you, How I organized My Entire Life. Not to say that there isn’t room for improvement in the organization department, but planning my days, weeks, and months…and actually writing down a plan 😉… has changed my life dramatically.
How did I organize my entire life? Well, that’s a simple and easy answer….by become a planner addict.
If you are looking for a last minute Santa visit that is over the top adorable, cute, and unique…or, if you’re just looking for a neat new spot to chow down on a big juicy burger…then you’ve come to the right place!
As I was announcing my Very Rosy Christmas Giveaway LIVE on Facebook a few nights ago, I couldn’t help but share with you all some of the details of this amazing Date Night! This Christmas Date Night in Rochester, Michigan had everything!
There were over a million Christmas light; there was Santa; there was an old fashioned Kris Kringle Market in the street; there was amazing food including a bread Pudding made from Donuts from our favorite local cider mill; there was delicious coffee; there were horses with glittered hooves pulling white carriages; and there was a completely edible life sized train made out of gingerbread!
I always envision decorating the Christmas tree in a glorious, unstresful way. I picture a crackling fire, hot cocoa in mugs overflowing with marshmallows, Christmas music playing in the background, and us joyfully reminscing about life and memories as we delicately place each ornament on the beautifully lit tree. And, at the conclusion of this fantasy, I picture a Christmas tree that belongs in a Pottery Barn magazine or something.
Every year, I picture this heavenly decorating day as our kick off to Christmas, and plan for it, and it never quite turns out how I’d hoped.
In this post, I’ll explain what I’ve learned over the last few years caring for and decorating a pre-lit tree. Follow these Step By step instructions to have a Christmas tree that doesn’t become a pain the neck, & somewhat resembles a designer tree at the end of the day.
My sister and I have done 4 different Color Runs over the last few years. But, this fall was our first time ever trying the Glow In The Dark Color Run Night…and it was an absolute blast! It is an epic night filled with music and disco balls, bubbles, black head lights, hot pink tutus, and a ton of laughs! I loved it, and can’t wait to do it again next year!
There is nothing I enjoy more than a beautiful fall evening at home….cozying up on the couch for a good movie, making fall treats, and carving pumpkins for our porch. This year I “upped the ante” a bit by making one of Adam’s favorite snacks…caramel apples! I’ve made caramel apples before, but this by far was the simplest, fastest, & most fun way ever!! Tonight we enjoyed them in a more romantical (yes, that’s a Stephanie-ism) way by making a Caramel Apple Fondue Bar!
