On Sunday, June 14, Dixie launched a movement called #DarkForDinner. The movement encourages families to be more present in the moments that matter most and spend more meaningful time together, especially during dinner. In order to really appreciate the company of your family during dinner, the #DarkForDinner movement asks those participating to turn off all cell phones, televisions, computers or other electronic devices to ensure the time together is distraction free. I can’t even tell you how much I LOVE this movement.

Then cut them up. I rolled them up around a pen so they would be easier to draw out of the jar (and look pretty and colorful too!)
Our “Family Talk” jar sits on our dinner table now and the kids ask to play it every night. They absolutely love it and I love the distraction free dinners! It’s truly a bonding time and we’ve learned so much about each other that we might never think to ask about otherwise.
Join Dixie by participating in the #DarkForDinner movement. For one family dinner, make sure work calls, personal calls, social media or other distractions do not take away from time you can spend together. Go #DarkForDinner and enjoy great conversation and time with what really matters most in life, your family. We are going dark for dinner this Sunday and I will be sharing our dinner experience (and my amazing recipe) with you afterwards! I challenge you to join us this Sunday and put away your devices!
Will you join me?
