The Equation

My dad and I try to keep up with our tradition of sharing the Sunday paper each week. One of us buys it and then shares it with the other. I don’t know why we started it, but it’s our special thing.

We had this text conversation last Saturday.


My dad was snuggled up on the couch with Reggie, Brandy, and the Pittsburgh Post Gazette so he sent me a picture saying the only thing missing in the equation was me.

On any given Saturday night, you can usually find a few of my family members cuddled on my parents’ couch, just hanging out and relaxing. It’s definitely something I miss about living at home!

Do you have any traditions with your family members?



  1. I used to always read the Sunday paper with my family too. My parents have pictures of me reading it as a child, when the paper was bigger than I was (I was a tiny terror back then too even if I didn’t have the nickname). I’d like to think those days of reading it as a kid contributed to me going to college for writing/communications, too.

  2. Aw this post just melted my heart. Such a sweet tradition to share, you can tell you have great family values! I don’t have many family traditions but every year my sister and I make it a point to go on a little mini vacation together. And then always in August, my mom sister aunt and I also go on a little 1-night trip somewhere around the East Coast whether its Newport, ME, etc…

  3. My mom and I just went shopping on MLK day together and I think it might turn into an actual tradition. I don’t think I have any other traditions with other people, I live alone hahaa
