Family Friday: A New Development

Easter Family Photo Shoot 2014 | ApplestoZiti.com

I’ve decided to try something new here on the Apples to Ziti blog. After getting some feedback from you readers, I’ve decided to streamline my posts about my family & life. Your opinions are important to me. So I’m declaring Fridays the official posting day for ‘Chronicles’ about my family and life. Henceforth they shall be called, “Family Friday” posts. Clever, right? This will leave the rest of the week open for recipe and mom-lifestyle posts. I can’t promise you that I will never post about my family or life on the other days of the week. Sometimes exciting things happen and I just want to share them right away!! But, if at all possible, I will restrict posts about family & life to Fridays.

Along with this, I would love to encourage you to reply with comments or emails about your own families and life on these Friday posts! Or anytime actually!! Attach a picture if you can. I love to see you in action with your family. I love to see your latest creations in the kitchen. I love to see pictures of your pets. Your kids! Your outings! The whole gamut!  Getting to know readers is one of my absolute favorite parts of this blog. I’m excited and humbled when you tell me you’ve tried out one of my recipes, and I very much enjoy hearing about recipes you are concocting in your own kitchens!

I can’t wait to hear from you!

Please take a moment to take quick poll to give me some more feedback for the blog. Click ALL that you are interested in. It might be one area or all of them!

Thanks!

Happy Family Friday!

love, Jenna

Masterpieces & Mischief

Emily Jane Painting

One of my favorite things to do during days of ‘stay-at-home mommying’ is to escape the sound-making toys, lose sight of the television, and take the kiddos outside to paint. No way is this happening INSIDE my home.

Thankful

pink shoes

My daughter’s pink shoes on the rug by our back door. Usually I urge that we keep our sand outdoors. I hate to sweep. And mop. Sand makes both those tasks that much more laborious. Looking at the shoes and the sand, I thanked God for the ability to play outdoors. To build sandcastles. To dig. To run.
