Celebrate the small things Jan 31st


I know I am a day early, but since I get so busy on Friday’s and forget I figured I would get it out here a day early!

It is that time again, time to celebrate the small things in life even if the world feels like it is crumbling down on you.vik - small things 2

Luckily, at this moment, I don’t feel like the world is crashing, but still will celebrate some things.

1st  – I will celebrate that I survived the snow disaster we had here in Atlanta this week. If you have been near a television you are aware of the colossal disaster the city of Atlanta and it’s surround counties caused this week by not closing schools earlier, and letting all government and private companies leave work at the exact same time. Causing and icy gridlock that had many people in the car for 12-13 hours taking a trip that would normally only take 30 minutes to an hour. I am blessed that I work from home and my daughter has not yet started school so I was not stuck in the mess.

2nd – Even though I H.A.T.E the cold, I was a trooper and went out and played in the snow with my daughter. She loved it and that is all that matters. So I will celebrate she got her snow!

3rd – I am celebrating that I know I will eventually finish this final draft of my novel and have it ready for publication. I am about 1/4th of the way through it, but it will happen and I am celebrating that every time I type a word or fix a nit, I am doing something that is moving me forward.

Well, that is about all for me this week. I am sure there are more things to celebrate but I will save them for next time.
What are you celebrating?

Celebrate the small things – January 2014 NEW YEAR edition



Wow, can you believe it is 2014…. Saying time flies, sounds so cliché, but really it does!

For the first week of the new year I have a lot to celebrate.

1. I survived Christmas and it was the best one so far with my daughter.
2. I was sick for most of December but today I am starting to feel better and may finally be breaking free of this flu type illness that has plagued me all December.
3. I got a new laptop for Christmas, so no excuses not to write.
4. I have started back editing my story and it feels good to be creative again.
5. Tomorrow is my birthday and if I feel good enough hubby is going to take me out to dinner. I am thinking Red Lobster!

I could go on and on with my celebrations, but I have a pretty little girl standing beside me who wants some mommy time so I am off to celebrate her!

Happy New Year everyone!!
