My blogs and instagram feeds are overflowing with pictures of Friday Bouquets at the end of every work week. It's a nice way to celebrate the end of hard work and the beginning of more time at home with those we love. And the pictures are always beautiful. I appreciate them.
But for us, Friday means Pizza Night. I make the dough the night before (you have to try this recipe..it's the best!) so when we come home it's ready for us to go to town with toppings. Pizza is fun and easy to make for everyone and the boys can put whatever they like on theirs. No one complains because everyone gets what they want. Just that, is such a treat for a tired mom at the end of the week! To top it off, pizza night is enjoyed in the couch in the family room with the fireplace going and a movie playing on the TV. We all sit in the couch together and eat pizza and watch a movie. No homework. No lunch boxes to prepare. No alarm to worry about.
Just family, simple food and some candles. And maybe some tulips for myself to sneak a peek at while everyone is quietly happy together :-)
