The other day I was thinking about all the things that make us, well us. Especially as I was planning our family pictures with Topher (last year’s awesomeness here). What makes us a family and what will our babes remember when they look back in time (hoping they look back fondly). So I started writing and came up with our Sterusky family rules which make me even happier with these pictures to look at…
In our HOME we always give hugs, kisses & I love you’s for good mornings, good nights & see-you-laters. In our HOME we always eat dinner at the table which is our electronic free zone. Give us all the talks! In our HOME we love DIYs because it gives us a chance to be creative & tackle challenges that we may face. In our HOME dance parties are a must… the giggles that happen during & after are amazing. In our HOME there is never a shortage of pictures. Mama just. can’t. STOP. haha In our HOME we get outside because nature is our thing. In our HOME there may be toys all over and it may not be always picture perfect but I think that just shows that we like to have a good time. We like to live. In our HOME there are always second chances.
What would your family rules look like? What’s most important to you and your family? Writing all of these made me realize how grateful I am for all that we have and where our family is at right now. It made me want to always strive for better… for more. Give it a shot, happy Friday friends!
