Our favorite tradition would be playing Renee’s grandparents’ old Christmas albums on our record player as we open Christmas gifts and enjoy having Renee’s homemade muffins for Christmas breakfast.
Every July, Renee’s family gathers in Vermont to participate in the Prouty, a fundraiser for the Dartmouth Hitchcock Cancer Center, to honor Linny, Renee’s aunt who passed away. This includes generating donations, completing a walk, run or biking adventure and then celebrating with all participants at the finish line.
Matt’s family has a lovely tradition of having birthday dinners at any restaurant the birthday person chooses. It’s so fun to try new places to celebrate special occasions. Recently, we’ve been lucky enough to enjoy the best Italian food in New York City as well as some truly inventive Thai food.
We love to travel and since pictures just don’t remind you of all of the special moments a vacation can have, we have been keeping a vacation journal since our very first trip together. This journal notes all of the memories we’ve shared during each trip. This journal, along with pictures, allows us to relive our unique vacation experiences at any time.
Our weekdays usually revolve around our love of evening walks around the lake in Central Park. On weekends, we treat ourselves to a dinner and a movie date night. We mostly see comedies and action movies in our favorite theatre, which is a short walk from home and has reclining seats!
