From Mundane to Memorable

So one day last week my hubby was home sick, and it was one of those cold, yucky “I want to stay in and cozy up by the fire” kind of days.  However with kids that daydream lasts about ten seconds!  So as I was prepping lunch…a frozen pizza (I know…my husband got the royal treatment!), I thought, “Hmmm…let’s make this a fun lunch!” So I grabbed these nifty pizza plates (given to us as a wedding gift years ago) along with some red and white checked napkins.  Then, I remembered some checked placemats I had from Kenley’s picnic-themed birthday last year! A-ha! Added those, a lit candle, and cranked up our Tuscan Kitchen tunes and ta-da!… Suddenly, a frozen pizza was something more. It was a chance to pause from the daily routine, the yucky weather, and take a little Italian escape right within our home.

It was simple, but fun! And as I sat sipping my coffee and watching the smiles on my girls’ faces, it occurred to me that sometimes it doesn’t take a whole lot of effort (or time) to take the ordinary and make it something special for my family.  I hope that throughout the days to come I’ll look for more opportunities to change the mundane to memorable…for them, yes, but for this mommy too! =)


Okay, now your turn!  How do you make ordinary things special for your family? I’d love to snatch your ideas! =)
