wish i had thought of that

every once in a while, i come across a saying or a slogan where i think, "man, i wish i had thought of that!"  well, that's how i feel about hallmark's slogan...




i had been meaning to do a post about it for a while.  now with christmas around the corner, and in light of recent heart-shattering events, i thought now would be a good time.  because life is a special occasion.  it's why i wear gold eye shadow, even though i have on a tshirt and jeans, just because i feel like it.



it's why i sit outside with silly boys for two hours in the freezing cold to see a christmas parade...


and stand in line on a saturday to see santa.


 it's why we spend a sunday afternoon taking gifts to people we don't even know...




and why i have lunch with a bunch of preschoolers when i really need to be working.



it's why i order prints from an artist i have loved for a while...just because i want to look at them...



and why i let them stay up a little past their bedtime watching a christmas movie.


don't wait around...life is a special occasion.  thank you hallmark for reminding me.

sending love and prayers to newtown, and to all you.

here's to that special occasion called life,

merry christmas!
