Because it's a joy to have dinner at the table again, I'm implementing something I read about a while back about helping dinnertime be special by doing something special each night. Whether it means putting on a fancy centerpiece or using cloth napkins and eating by candlelight, it's nice to have something to make it feel special as you sit down together for dinner as a family. It's something I've wanted to do but found difficult while hating where the table was :)
We started this "fancy" tradition last week and the kids LOVE it! I have to admit, I love it too! :) We've even had sparkling apple juice for the kids to make it even more special. I am so looking forward to building lasting memories around the dinner table with that anticipation we all have to now gather around and eat together, in celebration!
