The change of seasons and the passing of holidays seem to be a blur and there are very few things I do that I don't end up doing in a rush. Technology and economics has everyone on the run, but I've found a way to help my family pause to enjoy each season and holiday. It all started with a gold tray I got on clearance at Target for about $8 last year. When I bought the tray, I had no idea how I would use it, but the sheer fact that it was on clearance at a good price made me buy it.

Once it was on my dining room table, I decided the "tray" would serve as a foundation for seasonally decorating my dining room table. Once I began consistently creating the tradition of decorating the tray, I realized it was about a lot more than a season or a holiday. It now serves as a source of joy and light for my family and myself, as we also deal with our life seasons. It goes without saying that during this time, the tray on my dining room table is decorated with an Easter theme. Family and visitors alike are starting to learn to lean into the tray and grab a piece of candy as they pass through the dining room, but hopefully it will also help them remember the importance of embracing each season they live through.
