There is something so wonderful about having children take part in hobbies that you love. Whether it’s golf, horseback riding, stamp collecting or playing the guitar – creating a family tradition of learning new hobbies is such a wonderful treasure that you children are sure to thank you for over and over again.

Dad taught me to play golf at a young age and it’s something I am continually appreciative for. I still have the wooden drivers that I learned on, reminiscent of the Bobby Jones days.  I learned to play the violin in elementary school and came to find out that my Grandfather had played as well and still had his violin, how wonderful! I rode horses, a hobby my “grand master” Aunt continues still to this day.

Exposing your family to new hobbies & interests enables you to share your passions with them, while opening up new worlds of adventure and a lifetime of stories for them to share. What hobbies does your family have?

grandma-grandpa-honeymoonIn honor of Valentine’s Day, thought we’d discuss the tradition of gift giving on your anniversary.

I’d be safe to say that every girl loves chocolates and flowers, but why not shake things up a bit this year and get back to the basics. I found this wonderful list to share of the “traditional” anniversary gifts. I love this. I think this is simply a wonderful thing to follow – it makes you focus on things that are more meaningful and makes you be creative with such things as “paper” for the first year! Careful!

Another wonderful idea to consider creating as a tradition for your next anniversary, as a gift alternative, is one I’ll share from April. Plan a trip to celebrate each anniversary. It doesn’t have to be a week-long vaca to Europe (though nice …) it could be a simple weekend road trip to some quaint B&B that you’ve been meaning to checkout by the beach.

The photo is one of my Grandmother & Grandfather on their honeymoon, traveling around & having fun! Whatever the traditional anniversary gift is, just ensure it’s a meaningful one.
