Celebrate the Small Things

This weekly blog hop is sponsored by the amazing Lexa Cain, and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge and myself. 

What exactly are we celebrating?

Every week, wonderful things happen, tiny things, which make us smile. But as time grabs us up, we forget all about these moments as if they never existed at all. This is the chance for us to reflect back on those and remember that there are tons of things worth celebrating.

This week, I'm celebrating. . .

1) Online writing conferences and things! I don't participant in such things very often, so I was super excited to get on board for WriteOnCom this weekend. I also received a free voucher for a week long seminar on book marketing this past week. So, I've been soaking my brain full of information for the future. 

2) Chickens! I joined my parents at a small animal auction (for fun) this past week. My mother wanted to buy some chickens and ended up getting more than she'd hoped for. So I adopted four more. . .not that I really needed them. But yay to chickens, I guess.

3) Birds! They are gliding in again. So it looks like Spring isn't too far away. Actually, if the weather holds (and it appears it might), neighbors are telling me it will be time to plant lettuce and such in only two more weeks. 

And what about you? What put a smile on your face this last week? Go on a walk? Meet a friend somewhere? Find the perfect pair of socks? What are you celebrating?
