Hello, happy “keep me sane” menu plan day! Menu planning will not only keep you sane but save you all sorts of $$, keep healthy eating in check and make it easy for your kids to help in the kitchen. Yes please! Seriously don’t wait, do it today!
Yesterday was a bit of a hard day for me as it was the first time I didn’t get to celebrate my son’s birthday with him. Now if you know me at all you know I absolutely adore birthdays and making a big deal out of them. My son is away at college for this birthday so instead of celebrating with him in person I sent him a really big care package full of all sorts of birthday treats and got to talk to him on the phone yesterday for a whole hour. That was pretty cool since phone calls are few and far between from that boy, sigh. I absolutely love sending care packages to both my older kids who are away at school. In fact I sent my daughter a care package every month for two years. It just brings me so much joy to send them a box of surprises to make them smile. Anyone else do this regularly?
And in other news, I shared this on Instagram but for those that might have missed it, here’s how our fall is shaping up. We went from this beautifulness:
