:: I have been thinking a lot about celebrating. Where did I learn to celebrate? ::


:: My family are all great celebrators, especially my Mom. She is infamous for celebrating the littlest things - I remember one particular time when I was 3 or 4 and my Mom made a round chocolate cake with mini marshmallows on top of it in the shape of a smiley face, but a smiley face with glasses. My older brother Jordan, just got his first set of eye glasses and we were going to celebrate! ::

:: She (my Mom) instilled a great thing by showing me that everything is to be celebrated. For that I am thankful ::



:: That is why I started making cakes & cupcakes, to show a sign of significant celebration...and a great sign it is! ::

:: I love celebrating, I love making people feel special and celebrated. Everyone should feel that way. That's what I think! Maybe one day our paths will cross and I will have inclination to celebrate you too - I thank God that He has given me a desire to celebrate. We all have something to celebrate ::

:: I have had lots of parties lately in celebration of different milestones...Birthdays, Graduations and even Death and I truly think that celebrations add so much to life, I couldn't imagine living life without celebration. It is such a breath of fresh air to come along side someone and celebrate something that they have done or a milestone in their life - that is truly a gift in itself ::

{ Cupcakes done in celebration of a high school Graduation - They were jumbo cupcakes with a Grad Cap made of dark mint chocolate...surrounded by Skittles and labeled. They also worked as place cards for each Graduate }

I'm thinking of a really old Christian song.....

"Celebrate, Jesus, CELEBRATE!" (great, now that will be in my head ALL DAY!)

Thanks for being so thoughtful of all those that are around you and all the little things worth celebrating!

Hi Shawna - like your thoughts about celebrating. I need to do that more. Life gets busy and we need to stop and take time to celebrate the little things in our lives. We are so blessed.

Love the photo of Cole in the grass - another good one for a photo contest I would say.

Keep up your beautiful creative work - you have a great future ahead!

Lois
