Life Is a Special Occasion

Life Is a Special Occasion

Always keep a bottle of champagne in the fridge for special occasions. Sometimes the special occasion is that you’ve got a bottle of champagne in the fridge.” -Hester Browne

Today I am inspired by the idea of celebrating for no reason. No birthday, no holiday, no party- just celebrating: life, health, love, happiness, a day without spilling on yourself, waking up before your alarm, sneezing 11 times, a stranger returning lost keys to you, your cat sleeping unusually close, your phone still working after dropping it in rum, realizing the pepper shaker is wide open before destroying your KD with it, a pull through parking stall, a really great beard, rain that cleans your windshield when you’re out of fluid, sparklers, the red wine spill coming out of your sweater, when clumsy tripping babies just miss the side of the coffee table, free coffee at work, looking nice in a photo you didn’t know was being taken, when a joke that made you laugh 6 months ago makes you unexplainably belly laugh harder 6 months later, a Dad who is proud of literally everything you do, hip bones cheek bones and collar bones, being able to wake up from a dream where you were doing something terrible, your plane landing without bursting into flames, when something makes someone think of you, a great find at a thrift store and this.

    Today I am inspired by the idea of celebrating for no reason I like the IDEA!. No birthday, no holiday, no party- just celebrating: life, health, love, happiness(more stressed then anything), a day without spilling on yourself(i did this today too), waking up before your alarm(i did this today too), sneezing 11 times(i did not do this today too), a stranger returning lost keys to you( say thank you to him from me), your cat sleeping unusually close(don’t own a cat), your phone still working after dropping it in rum(nice work mine has a crack screen still pulling thru), realizing the pepper spout is wide open before destroying your KD with it( would like a picture or explanation didnt get this part), a pull through parking stall(nice), a really great beard(u have a beard? i assume ur bf does :)), rain that cleans your windshield when you’re out of fluid(nice), sparklers, the red wine spill coming out of your sweater, when clumsy tripping babies just miss the side of the coffee table(has happened to me quite a few times), free coffee everyday at work for me, looking nice in a photo you didn’t know was being taken(im jealous being unphotogenic and all) when a joke that made you laugh 6 months ago makes you unexplainably belly laugh harder 6 months later (lol) , a Dad who is proud of literally everything you do(this is something i desire on a daily basis my father continues to think the worse of me and also is doing the same with my kids too now 😦 very depressing situation), hip bones cheek bones and collar bones, being able to wake up from a dream where you were doing something terrible, your plane landing without bursting into flames, when something makes someone think of you, a great find at a thrift store and this(loved the picture)

    Have a nice day 🙂
