Have you seen those sayings floating around that say “Do what you love, love what you do”. I even have the saying, or something similar on the inside of one of my ball caps. I bought the hat at one of my favorite stores, Life is Good (http://www.lifeisgood.com/). I love just being in the store. I always feel so happy when I leave there. I have only ever bought three hats from there, one for me and one for each of my girls but I still love going in there just because I always feel so happy and blessed when I leave.
Crazy I know but I truly do believe that life is really so amazing. Yesterday I spent the day working on my events company. In the morning I met with one of my designers and we went over the inspiration board she is working on for a meeting with a bride we have next week. And then I spent the afternoon working on the Dandelion Festival. I am the Production Coordinator, Kids Zone Coordinator and Teen Zone Coordinator for the festival. When I shut down at the end of the day I was so happy, energized and excited. I love what I do. And I am doing what I love. Which makes me really great at what I do.
Are you doing what you love? Do you love what you do? Do you think you could be a better person if you were or are you already a better person because you are doing what you love?

I love creating little surprises for my girls, making moments a little more than just giving her a gift. Last night when my daughter went to bed I set up this banner at the bottom of the stairs. I had my husband bring in this super cute little table from our inventory shed so I could put the cute little gift box on it. This morning I lied here, like Christmas morning when my girls were little, waiting for her to get up and see it. Living your moment is about celebrating the little things in big ways and big things in little ways and the other way around too. Celebrating moments is what makes life so grand.
