How do you and your husband or significant other work the holidays? We live in Chicago, and both of our families are in the suburbs, so we're constantly schlepping around from party to party. One year, I had Easter dinner THREE TIMES. I kid you not. For the past five years, we've just had such a hard time saying NO - so now that we've been married for a few months, we've decided to start our own traditions and spend certain holidays with certain families to ensure that everyone gets quality time with us:)
I look forward to the day when we have a house and can take over the responsibility of hosting our family parties, but until then, I've realized that the hubs and I are slowly creating our own daily traditions, such as:
* Morning coffee dates to Starbucks before we leave for work (A wonderful, albeit expensive, start to the day!)
* Snuggling up in bed to "The Daily Show" and "Chelsea Lately"
* Going for walks around our neighborhood and taking photos
* Ordering in on Friday nights and watching movies
What are some traditions that YOU'VE created with your significant other?
P.S. Have a question? Need advice? Don't forget about our Formspring! We'd love to hear from you!
