Celebrate the good stuff
On Wednesday mine and Michael's surprise vow renewal featured on Simply Peachy Weddings. For our first anniversary I organised an intimate renewal of our vows without Michael knowing. I surprised him that morning with a note explaining what he needed to do, and it wasn't until he arrived at the park near our house, that he knew what was happening! You can read the full story here. (P.S I had blonde hair then!)
I only told a few people I was planning it, because it was about Mike and I, and no one else. Afterwards people joked about renewing our vows so early into our marriage, and couldn't really understand why I would plan something like that.
I'm a firm believer that the good stuff should be celebrated!
Life, relationships and health are precious gifts, and I think you should celebrate those things whenever you have the chance. Acknowledging these gifts is so important in the pursuit of happiness. Birthdays, weddings, anniversary's, births, promotions, achieving goals - they all deserve to be celebrated!
By taking notice of these moments and acknowledging their greatness we are effectively giving gratitude for a precious things in our lives, and if you're been reading my blog for a while, you will know how big of a deal gratitude is to me!
What is something amazing that you can celebrate in your life this weekend? It might just mean an outing to your favourite cafe for a yummy fresh juice, or it might be sharing a story with a friend. Whatever you choose to do, make sure you give thanks for the things worth celebrating!
