Sunday, February 6

celebrate life {and a celebrity meeting}

While {finally} reading my Real Simple magazine last night, I came across the CUTEST article ... 


I won't try to rewrite the entire article but HIGHLY suggest everyone read it ... I do want to share my favorite though ... 



Celebrate EVERYTHING

I know that so often, I end up only celebrating the 'big' things (birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc) but why shouldn't we celebrate ALL the little things too? A successful day at work, a Tuesday date night, or a sunny afternoon after several rainy ones? 

Julie Klam says, "each time I walk into my apartment - even if I've been gone for less than a minute - my three dogs leap on me, kiss me, lick me, wag and bark." I know that my puppy does this too ... Because he is excited EACH time I walk into the door {or room for that matter}. So why shouldn't we take their lead? Why shouldn't we shower our husbands, parents, friends with LOADS of LOVE each and every day? 

I know that starting now ... I'm going to make a much bigger effort to make EVERY day a celebration! 

Speaking of celebrations ... 

I'm STILL elated with how my Friday night turned out! As I said, we went to see Thompson Square and they were AWESOME! But even more awesome than the show? 

I GOT TO MEET THEM! :) 



Aside from the terrible iPhone pic, how cool am I?! :) 

They are THE nicest couple and their music is SO GREAT! I can't wait for their album to come out on iTunes ... This Tuesday {yes, I'm counting down}! 

Happy Super Bowl Sunday y'all! 

xo!

How fun that you got to meet them after the show!

Also, I love the pet advice you shared with us--I am going to have to pick up a copy of Real Simple and read the rest of them :)
