Just Another Day + Giveaway

Just Another Day

(Update:  The raffle is now closed.  I hope the winners enjoy the mugs! ☕)

My mom always treats holidays and birthdays as “just another day” and while I find that enticing and often easy to do, I don’t think it’s the healthiest mentality.  We need a reason to celebrate. It doesn’t have to be a big reason or even a big holiday. You don’t have to celebrate in the streets with thousands of your closest friends. But you can find meaning and joy in telling stories, sharing congratulations and spending time in fellowship. 

Most of 2018 didn’t end up being just “another day” for me. It might have been a bit crazier than the average year, considering some major life changes like, I don’t know, uprooting our entire family and moving to another country. 2018 was made up of little moments that made this year pretty great. 

  • Marriages.
  •  Pregnancies and births. 
  • Graduations and job promotions.
  • Moves and house purchases.
  • New friendships and new languages.
  • Bravery, strength, diversity, love, compassion.

Find your reason to celebrate.

A note on subscribing: I’m not doing this to make money, so popping your email in the doobly-doo below isn’t going to do anything except let me know I need to add your name to a hat for the raffle.  There’s no fancy newsletter, no cool shills or “influencing.”  You’re just going to get an email when I upload a new post, and if you don’t want that, then unsubscribe.  It won’t hurt my feelings, I promise.  A wise woman once told me to write for myself, so that’s what I do here.  If you like it, that’s just icing on the cake. 🍰
