roadtrips.010There are few things more wonderful in this world than a road trip. The anticipation of the vacation finally coming to a start, generally the many hours of build up you have traveling the road, anxious to reach the destination you’ve been so longing for.

I feel road trips are making a come back too, in a big way, as is the simplicity of a family vacation. Every family creates a different sort of tradition for the time spent on their well traveled paths.

For our family, road trips started with a hearty McDonald’s breakfast, a backseat full of pillows, a bag of Starburst, and country musics original greats on the radio. The many traveled hours took us from the largest interstates to the tiniest small town squares, and all the while we played games as a family.

“Car Bingo” was absolutely a favorite – a retro cardboard square with tiny plastic windows pushed closed when we spotted a cow, an airplane, a firetruck. “The License Plate” game was on-going … the excitement of finding a road-mate from some far-off place like Hawaii, Alaska or Kansas was unimaginable.  And last but not least, the most-played “Alphabet Game” is one that never gets old – broken into “teams” trying desperately to find the Q’s and X’s before the other team and hating when our travels led us off the beaten path where it seemed no letters existed in the world as our game came to an unfinished end.

Road trips are not soon forgotten. The traditions continue through the generations, the memories continue.

Create family traditions of your own. Give the gift of IceMilk Aprons.

There are many things you can pass down to your children through the legacy of ideals you’ve taught them and traditions you’ve created as a family – one being the value of historical preservation.

When we teach our children the value of history, where they came from and the stories behind what they see and hear in today’s world, we also pass down an appreciation for the past and an anticipation that it continues to be around for future generations to enjoy.

While sitting in traffic yesterday, I was so pleased to see yesterday that Georgia has a license plate dedicated to historical preservation. Our state, like all others, has so many special treasures to be restored to their splendor and glory – from the downtown buildings of Savannah, to the landmarks of Atlanta, and the mansions, city buildings and churches of small towns across our state.

I hope you will create a family tradition of your own to educate & engross your children in the importance of historical preservation by allowing them the opportunity to experience these wonderful gems.

While some moments are captured by the familiar taste of a homemade dish or the sight of an heirloom lamp or by the sound of familiar tune, the wonderful aroma of your mothers signature scent can make an ever-lasting impression.

A stunning fragrance, whether your mothers or grandmothers or even the strong musky scent of your fathers, can bring back a lifetime of memories with a simple whiff. A wonderful family tradition to begin is by establishing a signature scent of your very own.

Take the challenge full on. In today’s world of a thousand of scents and cosmetics galore, spend some time investing in the flora & fauna behind the smell, the scents of your family members, and what scent you want to be remembered by for a lifetime. Consider the beauty of the package, the elegance of the smell and the lasting qualities of the heirloom scent that you choose for your own.

And I must say, investing in a beautiful vintage perfume atomizer makes the experience even more divine each day.
