Celebrate the Small Things

It's time for another edition of. . .


This is a weekly blog hop sponsored by the amazing Lexa Cain, and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge and myself. Every week, wonderful things happen, tiny things, which make us smile. But as time grabs us up, we forget all about those moments. This is the chance for us to reflect back on those and remember that there are tons of things worth celebrating.

 If you'd like to join in and add a little more joy to your week, then go ahead over to Lexa's or simply pop by the linky below!

This week, I'm celebrating. . .

1) Easter! Not only is it an event worth celebrating, but we enjoyed it and even got some egg hunting in (which wasn't a sure thing with the rain.)

2) My birthday! Which just happened to be on Easter. So it was a double celebration that day.

3) Prom! Not mine, obviously. My daughter had her first PROM over at her boyfriend's high school. That was on the Saturday night right before husband picked her up at the high school at 3:00 am, and we had to leave for church at 7:00am, so it was a light sleep night for him. Plus, I spent Friday sewing like a crazy woman to make that dress fit just right. *sigh* Talk about a mad dash. But she looked lovely. 
And wore tennis shoes underneath.
With neon orange socks.
That's my daughter!

4) A day off on Monday! Since the kids had off, we packed up and drove to my parents' place for the day. It was full of fishing, food, cow gazing, tree hunting and all sorts of fun things. Oh, and baby goat cuddling. There was a lot of that going on too.

Now, it's your turn! What are you celebrating this week? Did you see a hot air balloon pass over? Smell a wonderful coffee...or cake? Get to eat that cake? Eat a few Easter eggs? What put a smile on your face?

If you don't have a reason to celebrate (and love giveaways), go take a peek at the 'Giveaway' tab above. There are quite a few giveaways running from books I've been presenting on my review blog...and judging by my calendar for the next days, the list is going to grow. There's books, goodies and GCs too.

AND. . .

Yeppers, there's more!

On May 31st. . .or so it's expected. . .an anthology packed full of awesomesauce is coming out. I'm super excited to be sandwiched in between so many terrifically wonderful authors. And I'm betting you'll recognize more than a few.
