Home Sweet Home

Home is a place I struggle to curate.

I try to stay on the minimalist side with stuff and it’s important to me to have a neat, clean home. {Obvi.}

But I still struggle not to get caught up in maintaining stuff and keep from pushing memory making and connections to the side.

One of the best steps I’ve taken in that is to automate as much as I can. These things don’t necessarily get done each time, but because they’re recurring, I know they won’t fall through the cracks. Add them to your calendar to save brain space and cultivate more time for more important things!

What’s one of those ‘more important things’ you have planned for this weekend? We have a neighborhood cookout to go to, and we’re really excited to meet the 20-some families who have moved in over the last couple of months.

    We have Family Game Night (Saturday) and Family Movie Night (Sunday) almost every weekend. We have an extensive collection of Euro board games that we play with our son, and sometimes with our daughter (she’s still too young for most of them). We take turns picking a movie (parents have veto power). Of course, if ABC Family is having a Harry Potter weekend, all bets are off. :) These are simple traditions that will become lasting memories for our kids.

      How fun! Selah, you and your family do such a great job of creating memories together.

    Changing the sheets on our med is something that seems to fall through the cracks around here. I think scheduling it would be a good idea!
