For many major holidays when we get to spend the holiday at home we like to have a brunch. It's become a 'thing' and I look forward to putting it all together for Josh and Penelope. We put some records on and sit and chat over brunch for a long time. I don't know why but these little moments end up meaning a lot to me. Just a calm time where the three of us just enjoy each other. Usually Penelope says something really hilarious and unexpected and Josh and I just look at each other and burst out laughing. She's all like 'what, what did I say?' Little inside jokes and mostly we just think she's the most adorable thing ever. I look forward to when Penelope is all grown and she has her family over for brunch with us. It's our tradition and we started out this new year fresh with fresh food and a lovely New Year's day. I hope to do more special things with just the three of us all year long. Maybe even start a new tradition or a few new ones. I loved the little things that my parents did throughout the year that I could look forward to as a child. I miss those things now that I'm an adult but I'm more than happy to make Penelope's childhood full of anticipation and happy things.
What kind of yearly traditions do you do with your family? I'd love some ideas.
p.s. I'll share recipes for my frittata and fruit galette in the next couple of weeks.
