Celebrate Dad This Father’s Day

and All Summer Long

 

Sometimes dads are found in untraditional places. Rory’s real father has been far from a loving, trustworthy figure in her life–disappointment and heartache riddled their relationship and still does.

However, in Luke, Rory has found a father figure worthy of respect. Someone who cares about her, loves her, wants to see the best for her, and isn’t afraid to be a “parent.” She thinks of Luke as her step-dad, and this Michelob ULTRA moment is for you, Luke, because you are an ULTRADAD! Thanks for being there; you’re the best.

We love to BBQ all summer long (all year really, here in So Cal). Luke mans the grill and Rory and I act as Sous Chefs. One of our favorite summertime meals is barbecue chicken with Citrus, Chili, Cilantro Marinade. It is light, packed with flavor, and a perfect pairing with Michelob ULTRA. Get the printable recipe here.

We also love to work and play in our garden.

Celebrate dad this Father’s Day by spending some quality time with him and letting him know how much he means to you. Michelob ULTRA makes a great gift idea too.

Whether it’s after a bike ride, hanging out around the barbecue, or just having fun in the garden, it’s always a good time chillin’ with Michelob ULTRA!

Celebrate your ULTRADAD.

Our Little Happiness Jar Is Full

Our Happiness Jar Is Full !

A while ago, Rory and I made a Happiness Jar. I wrote a blog post about our project, and why we were doing it in Our Little Happiness Jar, click to read about it.

Today, our Jar was very full, and we decided to read the notes we stuffed inside. It was great. We sat down with our morning cups of coffee, and took turns reading the scraps of paper. What a joy. We laughed and talked about some of the memories the notes brought back, about how somethings had changed. We became sentimental with others. It was a nice moment, quality mother and daughter time, and a wonderful start to our “Happy” day.

If you don’t have a Happiness Jar, I would highly recommend you think about starting one for your family. We saved our notes in a ziplock bag and marked it with the date we read them. Maybe somewhere down the line it will be fun to take a look back.

Do you have any similar family traditions?

Does your family sit down and focus on the happiness/blessings of your lives?

Our Little Happiness Jar…

Times are tight and tough right now for Rory and me. So, I thought I would do something to remind us that we are still blessed in many ways. There are still things for which we can be happy.

We have long had the tradition of a Christmas Blessings Box. This decorated box sits below our Christmas Tree with Christmassy paper and pens next to it for everyone to write random blessings and place them in the box. We do our big celebrating and gift opening on Christmas Eve, but on Christmas morning (after the excitement of stockings), we settle in next to the tree and read the notes in the Christmas Blessings Box.

I thought it would be a nice idea to turn this long-time holiday tradition into an everyday opportunity. I knew I had seen something on the internet regarding a Happiness Jar and it had reminded me of our Christmas box. I did a search and found lots of photos and even the originator of the idea. Read about Elizabeth Gilbert and her Happiness Jar, here.

Remembering that I had found an old mason jar when cleaning off the shelf over the dryer, I went to find where I had stored it. I grabbed my prize and went to scrub it clean. It had bits of old labeling stuck to it. Have you any idea how to get off those pesky bits? It’s really very simple…vegetable oil! I ran the jar under hot water to heat the leftover labeling and then scrubbed the jar with vegetable oil. The old labeling came easily off the glass.

Now, I had a sparkling jar to decorate. I tied a beautiful floral print bow around it and designed a printable (watch for this Printable DIY as a post soon).

I liked the idea of using a clear Mason jar for my Happiness Jar because you can see the blessings piling up inside. I figure that once a month Rory and I will sit down together and read these happy notes. Long live the Happiness Jar!

Do you have any similar traditions or ideas?
