Prior to 2012, ten years before launching this site, I believed in celebrating the big things in life: graduations, weddings, births, retirements – all of the major milestones in life. But in 2012, my life shifted and I began finding an appreciation for the little things as well: a beautiful sunset, a fragrant flower, a delicious meal – all the things that truly make life just a little prettier on a daily basis. But the one thing I loved even before 2012 was celebrating every holiday possible. Whether it was a holiday I had never heard of before but introduced to me by a friend, a federal holiday that gave us a day off from school/ work, or a holiday solely created by Hallmark, I have always loved celebrating every occasion. After all, isn’t everyday on this beautiful planet a reason to celebrate?
And this week was the perfect example of why I have always loved celebrating every holiday. My favorite holiday this past Tuesday means we now have flowers and macarons in the prettiest shades of pink + memories of a fun getaway to the American Riviera last weekend. And while I now have to wait another 52 weeks to celebrate love day again, this past week was a gentle reminder of why it is so important to celebrate every day. We have a finite amount of time in this world, and it is an amount we will never know until the end. Thus, I love knowing that even if my favorite holiday is now a year away, the next holiday to celebrate will be much sooner than that. I’d love to know, what holidays do you love to celebrate?
