conversation starters 01

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Barilla, but opinions are my own. As a mom of five, I definitely know what it is like to be busy!

How to Make Dinner more FUN- The Family Dinner Project

family dinner project 1

Several months ago, my sister-in-law and I were talking about ways we can add a little more fun to our family routines- specifically our dinner-time routines. We both agreed that the dinner table is an ideal gathering place to connect with your family and create lasting memories. But with all of the tasks and responsibilities we have as parents, it is easy to fall into a “dinner-time rut” and lose some of that excitement and joy.
