Creating New Memories in the New Year

Creating New Memories in the New Year

The New Year is a time for new resolutions and memories! I’ve had my mind on creating new memories in the New Year. I love Hallmark‘s message that life is a special occasion and to celebrate every day moments. It inspires me to slow down and enjoy the little things.

My daughter (4 years old) always wants to help in the kitchen. I usually tell her “not right now” or “next time”. But with Hallmark‘s message fresh in my mind I am stopping to pause and enjoy the moment. “Yes! Let’s cook together.”

Will there be a mess? Yes! But that smile and this time together is totally worth it!

Form balls of the dough on a greased cookie sheet.
