Simple Family Traditions : (...and Sauteed Onions, Too)
Heart-warming traditions that elicit fond memories of loving family time together; traditions - funny, awkward or even solemn that connect you across time and space with the family and friends you hold most dear; simple traditions that you recall from your childhood or your life as a parent. That's what Linda Mitchell offers in Simple Family Traditions, a one-of-a-kind collection drawing on the experience and creativity of over 40 women from around the U.S. Mitchell begins each of her seven chapters with a personal essay illustrating how even the smallest of traditions can inspire and strengthen a family's bonds and collective history. Each chapter is rich with practices and customs for birthdays, holidays, and even for instilling values for everyday life. Chapters end with space for readers to make notes and add their own family traditions, making it an heirloom for generations to come. Simple Family Traditions is fun, poignant and elevates the importance of how families can celebrate life's many rites of passage while also nurturing individuals' sense of self and community. There is nothing like it on the market today. Mitchell has created a handbook of over 250 ideas for anyone interested in enriching their lives and those of their loved ones through the simple act of traditions.
