The Power of a Family Motto and the Surprising Origin of Never Too Festive

Motherhood is a beautiful journey, filled with ups and downs, challenges, and moments of pure joy. In the hustle and bustle of daily life as a mom, it's easy to get caught up in the never-ending to-do lists, chores, and responsibilities. But what if we could bring back the fun, creativity, and style into our day-to-day lives as mothers?

Welcome to this blog, where we aim to do just that – make motherhood fun again. I'm thrilled to have you join me for the very first episode, as we dive into the importance of a family motto and the inspiration behind the name Never Too Festive.

The Origin of Never Too Festive

The concept of Never Too Festive originated in a simple yet unexpected place – a set of cocktail napkins at a home goods store. A picture of Santa tangled in Christmas lights with the words "Never Too Festive" caught my eye and sparked a new motto for our family.

What started as a humorous phrase on cocktail napkins evolved into a guiding principle for our family, reminding us to always embrace joy, celebration, and a little extra festivity in our lives. The idea that it's never too much to infuse our days with fun and creativity became a mantra we lived by.

Embracing Joy and Creativity

At the heart of our family motto is the belief that celebrating and finding happiness shouldn't be reserved for special occasions alone. It's about infusing everyday moments with a sense of joy, making small decisions that brighten our days and create lasting memories.

From themed family game nights to impromptu celebrations, we've embraced the idea that being festive doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. It's the little rituals and traditions that bring us together and make our everyday lives more meaningful.

The Power of a Family Motto

Having a family motto serves as a beacon, guiding us towards a shared vision and creating a sense of unity among family members. It acts as a North Star, helping us make decisions aligned with our values and what we hold dear.

Not every family motto will be the same, as each family has its unique values and beliefs. Whether it's about gratitude, love, learning, or fairness, a family motto can shape the emotional landscape of a home and foster a sense of intentionality in daily life.

Cultivating Intentionality in Family Life

Intentionality is key in creating a home filled with love, joy, and celebration. By reflecting on our own childhood experiences and the emotions we want our children to remember, we can consciously choose to create a nurturing and intentional environment for our families.

Engaging in conversations with our family members about what values and principles we want to uphold can lead to meaningful discussions and a deeper understanding of each other's perspectives. It's about being open to listening, evolving, and creating a shared sense of purpose as a family.
