Gathering the pictures and posts for our multigenerational family 2013 review was pretty fun 🙂 Much of our blog is about DIY home projects, tutorials and room makeovers but the other half is about our family, four generations living under one roof and my hope is that this blog will someday be a life journal for the kids and family to look back on and see all of our memories that we are creating. 2013 was such a fun year for our family and I am so happy to share it with you!
Many of you ask me daily, “how do you live with multiple generations?” Many of you have written and said, “I am moving in with my parent or my parents are moving in with my? HELP!” Those emails I will admit, crack me up 🙂 Some of you are so funny about your upcoming living arrangements. We have been doing this for almost 6 years so it’s normal now for us but I will admit, in the beginning it was scary and a bit painful! ha. It took a while to get the ground rules mapped out and we sometimes still have problems but that’s to be expected with so many people, from different generations, all living together under one roof.
Here are our TOP mulit-generational family moments for 2013 based on reader views.
“How do you live with four generations under one roof?”
Our multigenerational family sure had some fun in 2013! So many people email asking how, what and why do you live with your parents and grandparents and well, at this point, almost 6 years later I would have to say, “We like it!” 🙂 You can find more stories, our day to day life, lunch dates, trips and more on our multigenerational living page and read how our living arrangement started in 2008 on our “meet Jessica” page. Hoping for another happy and healthy 2014!
What started as a hobby, Jessica’s blog now has millions of people visit yearly and while many of the projects and posts look and sound perfect, life hasn’t always been easy. Read Jessica’s story and how overcoming death, divorce and dementia was one of her biggest life lessons to date.
