Slice of Life ~ Day 13 of 31


It’s Tuesday night... will the tradition continue?

It started out as a weekly date night with my wonderful husband.

It quickly became pizza night with my niece and her adorable little boy.

After several weeks with just the four of us we began to call it family night.

Later, my baby sister and her husband joined in... but they grew tired of the weekly pizza. 



We started meeting at different restaurants.


My niece quit coming. It wasn’t pizza night anymore.

My older sister decided to join in on the weekly fun.

It was suggested that we meet at someone’s house once a month and everyone bring something.

This tradition started over 12 years ago and continues to go strong. For the most part, we all live our own lives and this routine has become a very special time for us to catch up on the events of the past week.  Throughout the years, family members have joined us randomly on our weekly “family night.”

For the most part it still happens almost every Tuesday. 


Unfortunately there are times that stuff just gets in the way.

.....sickness
.........meetings
...............vacations
....................extended family visits
.........................work
..............................friends
...................................deaths
.......................................parties
.............................................church
..................................................money
......................................................sports
...........................................................appointments
.................................................................etc.

Tonight is one of those nights that stuff just got in the way.  

So... it's back to a date night with my husband.   We’re having pizza.  Delivered.

  7. I liked the way you described your tradition as it flowed and changed through the years. It reflected the way family life does flow and change. Every part sweet in it's own way.
