Ep. 015 Three Valentines Traditions for the Whole Family // Sarah McKenna of Bombshell Bling

Podcast explaining three awesome Valentines Day traditions for the entire family // 3 in 30 Takeaways for Moms Podcast

The first Valentines Day that my husband and I were dating, he showed up on my doorstep with flowers and a clue that started me on a scavenger hunt to romantic places all around our college town.

Seven years later, on our first Valentines Day as parents, he showed up on our doorstep with…a toilet plunger.  (You’ll have to listen to the episode to get the full story!)

Yes, becoming parents can definitely affect the romance of Valentines Day a bit–but there’s no reason why this “holiday of love” has to be limited to just you and your spouse.  February 14th can be a day to celebrate family love as well!

In this episode, my amazing sister Sarah McKenna, from the craft blog Bombshell Bling, shares three totally doable and super fun Valentines traditions for the entire family.

1) Secret Cupids: https://www.bombshellbling.com/secret-cupids-valentines-day-family-tradition/

2) Heart Attacks: https://www.bombshellbling.com/heart-attack/

3) Love Letters to your Kids: https://www.bombshellbling.com/mushy-love-letters-a-february-tradition/

All three of these traditions can be adapted for little kids up to teenagers, and all of them will bring your family closer together.  I hope you will give at least one of them a try, and let me know at my instagram account: @3in30podcast.

Ep. 010 Simple Holiday Traditions to Connect Generations

How to Create Traditions to Connect Generations

“How are you today, Grampy?”

“Oh the same: old and ugly, but contented.”

This is the opening line of this week’s interview with my 88-year-old grandpa.  You are going to love his personality and spunk, as he shares memories from his childhood Christmases.  My Granny also hops on to talk about what she remembers.  My heart just melts at the sound of their voices, and I am so grateful for all of the Christmas Eves that I spent in their home when I was a child.  (And we are headed there next week!  I can’t wait!)

Listen as I reflect on how to create cherished traditions that your children and maybe even grandchildren will remember, by creating “anchors” every year:

  1. A special food
  2. A meaningful gift
  3. A memorable activity

Stay tuned until the end of the episode to hear about my Christmas gift to you!  I think it will be useful to anyone who is a consistent listener to the 3 in 30 podcast.

Merry Christmas to all of you.  I truly love and appreciate you!
