Did you know that today is the last day of summer and tomorrow is the first day of fall? It is called the Equinox- when the daytime and the nighttime are of equal duration.  My husband and I have always found this day exciting and wanted to make a family tradition out of it.  Or maybe I just need a boost of energy instead of falling into depression that the days are going to get shorter and our time at the beach is coming to an end.

Either way we had a great time talking about everything “equal” as we took a family bike ride this evening.  My kids pointed out the garbage cans that were the same size and the cars that were the same color….  We ended up at the grocery store to find an Equinox treat to share.  Don’t tell my dentist but we ran across the PERFECT treat that will be a tradition in our home for years to come: Heads and Tails Oreos.  I am always looking for a reason to have a Oreo milkshake.  Ya get it- light and dark in equal parts!?

Love your family.  Love time with them.  Love making reasons to celebrate.  Love traditions.
