#Moana Family Movie Night + Giveaway USA 3/6





A tradition is defined as a passing of beliefs or customs from one generation to the next.

I have a custom that I share with my kids. Each time we have strawberries, I cut them to look like hearts.  My kid’s love it and I tell them each time they see a heart to always know that mommy and daddy love them. I like to add whip cream and/or condensed milk. 

Now each time they ask for strawberries it has to be cut in the form of a heart.  Even grandma cuts them the same way.  It became a family tradition as is family movie night at our home.  I love Disney movies and was excited to receive the Blu-Ray/DVD copy of #Moana. 




Moana is about a teenager who is on a journey to help her people. Along the way she meets Maui, a demigod together they have an action pack adventure.
