Calendar

Here’s what we’re hoping to celebrate!  This list is a work-in-progress, but it highlights many of the great reasons we’ve found to add a little extra happy to our days.  (Our list begins in April, as that’s when we began this little venture.)

Some of these choices were selected by my enthusiastic children.  Other days were biased by the fact that we love the food being celebrated.

Have we missed a special day?  What is your favorite holiday tradition?  Please share with us below!
