First of all, THANK YOU FOR ALL THE LOVE yesterday with our big announcement.

We are so excited.

So much more on that coming up.

But for now, I am thankful, on the eve of Thanksgiving, for traditions that bind us.

The ones we grew up with in the Eyre family as well as the ones that hold us close even when we’re far apart.

So, just in case anyone is wanting something to listen to as you’re running around today getting ready for tomorrow, (and the whole holiday season), I wanted to link readers up to our last and final episode of the first season of our sisters podcast (“In the Arena“) where we talk all about our growing up traditions and how they have transformed and morphed into each of our own families.

Guys, we have done TWELVE EPISODES in this Fall Season and it’s been so fun to share and connect with our growing little community. Thank you for listening and being there with us!!

Our next season will begin on January 10th, so be sure to tune in then.

For now, let’s just talk about traditions for a second.

Because I’ve been going down memory lane remembering those things that have the power to pull us together.

Do you believe traditions can do this?

I do.

From the roots at the “beginning of time”:

…that morph into “sending roots out” to college kids or mission kids who are far away:

And now my girls come home from college and fill that tree right up:

I love how traditions can spread.

Here’s our Jerusalem supper way back when Dave and I would go home for Christmas with our two little “babies” Max and Abby:

I love how those traditions have infiltrated into our own family.

And have made us feel not only part of each other, but of that bigger extended family growing up.

And now my parents are the ones who visit us, those traditions still holding us together.

If you’re sitting there thinking, “I don’t really have any traditions,” just know, you can start ANY TIME!

It is never too late!

And also, I bet you have more than you think you do.

For inspiration for some ways to start your own traditions, go listen to the podcast.

And then come back on January 10th when we will have some special guests to start us off on our new season:)
