How To Start a Family Giving Back Tradition

After Thanksgiving is over, the holiday season kicks into full gear. We quickly start thinking about finding the perfect gifts. We often get so caught up in buying things, and making lists of what we want, that we forget about the true joy of giving. You can change this by starting a giving back tradition with your family. Use this holiday season to think about giving back to the community and helping those in need. By getting your children involved with this, you can teach them the importance of giving to others.

Make a plan to give to others in a way that works for you and what your family is comfortable with. You may be able start a new tradition for you and your family that will bring new meaning to the Season of Giving. Here's some ideas to get you started:

Music Monday: Awesome Mix Volume 2

It's Monday and that means music! It's been a long time since I've done a Music Monday post, and to say a lot has been going on since my last one would be the understatement of the year, century even...but we won't get into that just now. This post is all about celebrating music, and what better way to celebrate it then by taking a look at the latest great soundtrack.

Today's songs are from Awesome Mix Vol. 2 from the second Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which I am so excited about! The movie hits the theaters on Cinco De Mayo, but you can enjoy the soundtrack now. Check out some of these great 70s songs from the album and take a trip down memory lane, or imagine a journey into space, whatever, your Monday, your music. Enjoy!

Pretty good mix right?! You should totally check out the rest of the songs, and of course, get ready to see what is sure to be just as awesome as the first Guardians of the Galaxy!

Have a wonderfully musical week!
