I want to start traditions.

Traditions. They are passed down from generation to generation. I have recipes, decorations, and songs that I now hold dear because they were expressed to me while growing up (most vividly are the holiday traditions). I love doing something that I know other family members and close friends are doing. It is what makes distance grow shorter and family alive in our hearts.

Lately I have been thinking about what kind of traditions (aside from the ones passed down to me) I can pass down to my kids and grandkids. I'm sure there will be things that I don't even think are traditions that will be passed down, but I want to create some too. So, today is my first day in finding something to recreate every year. At this very moment, I am baking Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls. I randomly had a craving for it the other day, so I looked up a recipe. I have tweaked it a bit to my own liking. But, the real test will be when I taste them this afternoon. Will it be all I hoped for in a Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll? Will it be worth passing it to my kids and grandkids and sharing it with others? We will soon find out. :-)

My Grandma was the "Grandmother" of traditions. What a great woman!
