Everyday Celebrations

Hello everyone!
As you may have noticed, I am a huge fan of adding fun into everyday.
I believe that life is meant to be celebrated.
It even says so in my bio. šŸ˜Š
Something I get asked a lot is, how do I had celebration into everyday?
For me it's easy, because adding celebration can be anything.
Here are some of my favorite ways to celebrate.
I love to indulge in each holiday, or the "real" holidays.
From Christmas to Cinco De Mayo to Groundhog Day I take any occasion to celebrate.
I love to go all out for these holidays with decorations and a fun themed menu.
We dress up, eat treats and enjoy some sort of entertainment.
We love to have wear kimonos on Chinese New Year and eat green pancakes on St. Patrick's Day.
I also love to keep up with national holidays, or the "fake" holidays.
There is one (or two) almost everyday.
I choose which ones I want or have the time to celebrate.
For instance this weekend was National Popcorn Day.
I LOVE popcorn...
We had to celebrate!
It just happened to also be Dolly Parton's birthday so, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to watch a Dolly Parton movie while enjoying some salty buttery popcorn.


But, it doesn't have to be a holiday (real or fake) to celebrate.
I believe that there should always be dancing in the kitchen.
Erik and I spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
Whether cooking dinner, baking a favorite treat or trying a new recipe for the blog, our kitchen gets good use.
We take the time the food is cooking to dance to our favorite songs.
Which brings me to our playlists.
We have a playlist for every occasion.
From Valentine's Day to paying bills we have songs at the ready.
I believe music makes everything better.
We also love to play games, go for long walks at new places or just make a huge deal of grabbing a treat from the gas station.
I feel like people put a lot of pressure on having fun.
Which takes away from the whole point.
FUN!
Do whatever you love and have time for.
From going all out on a themed party, to watching a movie to having a dance party in the kitchen while dinner cooks.
Find the celebration in everyday.

All my love,
Autumn
