Sundays are for Snuggling.

Life tends to get busy, and with kids, sometimes it feels like we are always just trying to sty afloat. We go into every weekend with a list of things we want to do with the girls, stuff we need to do around the house and of course, so much laundry. Before we know it, Sunday is here, and the stress of the upcoming week starts to settle in. We call it the empties, some of our friends call it the Sunday scaries, do you know this feeling?

So we have made it a tradition for the last few months, to always be home on Sunday nights. To always do an early, extra long dinner together, make sure things are picked up and in their place for the week, and then spend the last few hours of the weekend together in our happy place. We have dance parties, rent movies & turn on the fire when it’s cold. The big girls love to read together (and fight over who gets to pick said movie) while Claire climbs around like our living room is her own personal jungle gym. One of her favorite things to do each night is milk delivery for everyone, she helps me put the lids on everyones cups, and she runs into the room to bring Harper (Happie!) & Eloise (Eyee!) their milks, before running back in for her own. Sunday nights are one of our favorite times of the week, the perfect time to unwind and to count our blessings.

I love the saying, a Sunday well spent brings a week of content. Hope you all had a great weekend & wishing you a happy week ahead!! XO

  1. I know this feeling so well, my husband travels monday through friday during the week and we just dread sunday nights! Beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing your sweet thoughts with us!

  2. Such a good idea…we really need to implement something like this! Also, I have 3 boys and my youngest (almost 2) loves doing “milk delivery” for his brothers too! So sweet 🙂

  3. Hi Jessica I just love your blog! Could you do a post someday on where you get all your little bows and headbands? From newborn to little girl would be great! And how you organize them would be helpful too! Thanks for considering!

  4. You have the best ideas! I love when you put how your kids pronounce things, it’s one of my favorite things about my kids, their little baby talk and how things change and we miss it.

    Would love to get a step-by-step on that gorgeous built in shelf you fixed up.

  5. I like this way of thinking about Sundays! I find I always get the Sunday blues – that the weekend is coming to an end. But this is such a simple way to end on such a great note and start the week off on a good foot!
