Finding Family Time

Finding meaningful family time is so important. We can too often become so busy in our lives that we forget to enjoy each other's company and the place we call home. I love our afternoon walks around our neighbourhood and in the wild spaces, especially down along the river - to breathe, to talk, to be silent together, to connect, to explore. Today we spotted a beautiful little owl. 

Mealtimes are also times of day we all come together, but they are usually quite loud and chaotic affairs...wonderful, but quite different from our nature walks. We always come home feeling uplifted and calm.

What ways do you find regular family time to connect?


  1. Love that last photo of father and son taking time to smell a wild flower:) Looks like little son is teaching dad to take time and smell a flower and dad is also very willing and very patient to cooperate! Yes, families are very important!
    Cycling and eating a small picnic pack is always a favourite for our family too.

  2. Beautiful photos, Morag! I think strong families are built on that time together. Time spent with each other. In our family, we play games, walk our dog, kick a footy in the park or in our backyard, go to the beach ... together. And, at night, we sit down to dinner together. That's a family ritual.
