Favorite everyday ritual

What is your most important everyday ritual at home?

My kids' bedtime routine. This is my ALL time favorite time of day. In fact, I count down the hours and often begin it a little early. I love it because it means quality time with my kids, sudsing them up, cuddling them in their jammies and reading to them in our rocker.

It's also a time when I can just sit back and just enjoy their room, which I love.

I also love putting them to bed, turning out the lights and then... Freedom! It's then my time to illustrate, create, blog, lounge, browse magazines, make cookies, sew, illustrate some more, cuddle up with Jon, you name it.
