Our current reality is truly not the norm and is like we are living in another world or galaxy far, far away.
Daily, we are navigating unchartered territory for sure. Not going to lie, but I am more than overwhelmed by it all. And if this is my current mood, then I can only begin to imagine what my kids are experiencing.
My younger daughter had to complete a digital time capsule for a school. It consisted of a series of slides that she had to fill in with what she is feeling and doing during this time. Towards the end, she had to write a letter to herself and we (her parents) had to write to her, as well. I read her letter before penning my letter. It was heart-breaking for what she is missing right now. But she also gave herself some hope for what she believes in her heart what she wants after the dust settles. Her words inspired me.
We are indeed all home all day and night now.
Both my husband and I work during the day, while our girls work on their distance learning with our guidance. Challenges arise daily. But once the evening rolls around, we do our best to turn it all off and tune out. Movie, TV Show nights, as well as family game nights, are now the norm. One of our recent movie nights was watching the latest installment of Star Wars – The Rise of Skywalker.
Thus, the “Galaxy, Far, Far Away reference that opened this article. Star Wars is one of our favorite movie franchises. We raised our girls to share our love of all things Star Wars.
So, for our recent Star Wars movie night, we made Galaxy Popcorn.
We love popcorn when we watch movies. And this popcorn was not only easy to make, but perfectly themed for the Star Wars movie-themed viewing. I started with popped popcorn. Then, I used grape and berry Jello, as well as black melting chocolate discs. I also topped the Galaxy Popcorn with edible gold stars and silver sugar, too.
The result was Galaxy Popcorn that was indeed popcorn made for a galaxy far, far away!
