This started with a question, Eli asking me on the phone what kind of traditions I was going to do with the kids for Christmas. Ever since than we both have been thinking about traditions, what they are and how best to choose which to pass on.
A tradition is a ritual, belief or object passed down within a society, still maintained in the present, with origins in the past.
Creating memories is tricky business.
Little minds full of wonder.
And such little time to pack it all in.
How to pick, the important, the good...
Passing down a thing full of beauty.
Chosen moments of life.
Filling up days with deep meaning.
To learn, and grow, and be loved.
