Tradition Or Not
It's finally weekend again, and I so need it this week! It was training week at work this week, so a lot of extra duties on my day (and night) planner; it was fun, but plain and simply exhausting. But as there are no major plans this weekend, I plan on tanking as much sleep as possible. Before officially moving on to the weekend, it's once again time to celebrate Friday with the "Finish the Sentence Friday" link-up. This week's cue:
We can either be traditional or non-traditional in the way we do things...
... so we do it both ways, OUR way.
As a barely 22-year old, I married an American soldier not even five months after we met. Definitely not something my family or others around me had in mind for my life at that time, about to graduate from college.
We believe in family. We have decided to keep our kids at home until the age of 3, before kindergarten starts in Germany. But it wasn't me to stay home, but Richard.
We stage big easter egg hunts to celebrate spring, and nothing else.
We celebrate the winter holiday with all its beautiful pagan symbols, with family, togetherness, and peace on our minds.
We blend our lives with traditions from two worlds, from two cultures, and our own, new ways. It is a constant flow of some things disappearing and new ways being adopted; one day, we might have found the most perfect way for us, in the meantime, we enjoy our lives as a sometimes traditional family.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
