The Art of Celebrating... Good Times 101.

There's nothing like being surrounded by a community of people who share in a common joy!  Be it simply a friday night family dinner (more on that later), or the wedding of your dreams, celebrating life's big and not-so-big moments are really what I'm all about.  Believe it or not, there is an art to creating a truly memorable celebration and the biggest secret of all is that everybody already has the essential tools needed to pull off a truly memorable event.

The first key ingredient is of course a reason to celebrate.  Showing gratitude is a great way to find something to honor. What are you grateful for?  I encourage you to find reasons to celebrate your life and the lives of others around you. It's actually a great habit to get into! To be honest, some of my favorite celebrations are the ones that don't necessarily commemorate any 'great' event at all and if you stick with me, I'll be happy to show you exactly what that entails!

The next key ingredient is your community.  Find your tribe! Whether that's three, four or thirty-four people, sharing joy with other like minded folks is truly a gift in itself.   Lastly, one of the biggest conundrums to creating any event is big $ question... How much is this 'good time' gonna cost me?  For me personally, the quality of event really doesn't have to be proportionate to the amount of money you spend. It's really the people you've gathered combined with the heart and the thought that goes into the affair. That's what people will be left with long after you've paid the bank balance!
