5 ways I love to savor time with my family #MarieCallendersSK #ad #skexperts @SheKnows

There is nothing I cherish more than spending time with my children. Not “we have to clean the house today” time, but real “let’s curl up and read books or watch a movie or play a board game” time — time that is precious and memory making. With all we have on our plates with a busy family and work life, finding those quality hours can be hard. But when I do, I savor it with every molecule of my body! Though days out in the sunshine on family excursions like painting class and pottery class are awesome, savoring time with family at home is where my heart soars. More than sitting on the couch watching the latest kids movie, I like to plan out fun events at home that encourage laughter, bonding and chatter.
