We have been establishing traditions since we were married, and this house has given us a couple opportunities to make a some of our favorite small ones into even bigger ones!
Emily loves the season of Fall and Jack loves Halloween. We’ve both grown to love each of these because of all the things: dressing up in couples costumes, all the pumpkin coffee and pies, the cooler temps, and changing leaves. Apartment living sort of gave us a chance to decorate, but because of how often we planned on moving, we were loathe to gather too much “stuff.”
That’s all over now. We are so pumped about decorating this house! Check this out:
Some of the other traditions we look forward to continuing are…
- March Madness Cake Challenge (Jack has won that more than is reasonable)
- Seeing the lights on 34th Street in Baltimore at Christmas time
- Running at least one race every year
This house is strengthening the roots we had already put down in our six years living on the East Coast. And because we are in a new house, we look forward to establishing new traditions that will continue to create fun memories.
