Friday is one of my favorite days of the week. Actually, I start celebrating the weekend on Thursday night. We start relaxing, let the littles stay up just a bit later, and think happy weekend thoughts.
This Friday was a special day for the littles because Nonna and Gran came in for the weekend. And, they got to eat lunch with them at school. There is just nothing like sitting proudly beside your grandparents, savoring the pure joy of it all.
And, as always, the end of Friday is special because it is pizza and movie night. Even the youngest littles, who do not truly understand the days of the week just yet, know that pizza and movie night means no school or work tomorrow, staying up a little later, sleeping in a little longer, and having long, late breakfasts.
Yes, Friday is one of my favorite days of the week.
I did not create new recipes for today because I was enjoying being a daughter, a wife, a sister, an aunt, and a momma. We had an impromptu gathering at our house after school. And, it gave me a glimpse into the future, the one where I want all of our children and all of the their friends and all of our family to enjoy spontaneous celebrations on Fridays. Family, friends, joy, love, Fridays. It just does not get any better than that.
Enjoy your Friday, enjoy your weekend, and enjoy fabulous, fun food with your family!
