Happy Holidays

I am still in awe that 2011 has come and went.  This year has flown by and I am feeling so blessed beyond what I deserve.  I have enjoyed reading all of my friends, and blog friends posts, I am so thankful for technology and the great opportunities it brings. 

As a result of following my blog friends I have found a new interest in cooking and crafting.  It is the little things that bring me the greatest joy.  Hope you all have a fabulous holiday, Merry Christmas to you all!

Wish you nothing but happiness and lots of love for the year to come.

I'm Cheesy ok, I know!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

So, I am totally the type of person that gets excited for cheesy things! Like St. Patrick's Day today, it is also my nephew Chance's bday, so a shout out to him! But I get ready for work and come decked out with my bright green polo, green eye liner, green bracelets and even decide to buy some scratchers for my office coworkers with a little note that says, "Happy St. Patrick's Day, Hope you get Lucky" followed by my demand for a cut of their winnings! ha ha ha.
I love days like today. A silly reason to celebrate and change things up. I have been sick these past few weeks, but just because cheesy holidays like St. Patty's Day I am in a fantastic mood. I think its funny that these small, insignificant days, that are annoying to some, bring out a deeper happiness in me. It's not because I am Irish, or drink beer, its just because its fun, and another reason to celebrate something. And actually, most other holidays are the same for me and especially birthdays. Most of my friends can atest to this. I LOVE birthdays and not because I like parties, which I do love by the way, but because everyone should stop whining about their age. Who cares how old you are now, and what the world would say you should have accomplished by now, or how your body is not settling the way you had hoped. Birthdays are a time to celebrate that fact that you were born, and have lived a life that brought you to this year. Good or bad, you choose what perspective and outlook you will have. I am choosing the glass half full! The sun is shinning and the world is a disaster. I have come to know that I will be a lot more helpful and received if I am a positive motivator for change and action rather than a negative lazy person.
I am learning a lot about myself and honestly, today is one of those days where I have been enlightened that I like to celebrate, bring a smile to some one's face and make people feel like someone is thinking about them. I know there is so much more to life then these days but I am finding that sometimes it is the little things that make life worth while.

So Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone, pass on a smile and celebrate today!

Happy Valentines Day!

Yesterday I spent my entire day baking sweets finishing my valentine cards and spending time with my family. I am positive I get more excited for this day than anyone I know. Its a day that combines my favorite colors with images of hearts, flowers, candy and jewelry. Material items I know, but they still bring a smile to my face.

I just LOVE Valentine's Day, not because I have an amazing lover, or am hopeful to receive beautiful flowers, but because its one more excuse to celebrate those we love in our lives. More importantly, Today I celebrate, family, friends and the simple things that bring me happiness. Everyone says, today is commercialized by hallmark and flower shops as a way to exploit us. I beg to differ, so much of life is perspective and today my spin on Valentines, is full whole heartedly embracing the celebration!

So I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentines Day~ I challenge you to do a small gesture of kindness to someone today, a smile at a stranger, waving at an old man driving next to you or opening a door for the person walking in behind you.

Much love,
