Reasons to Celebrate

We've had a lot of those lately here in Woo-town.

Reason to celebrate this week No. 1: I have the most awesome best friend ever.
Out Past the Pasture sent me flowers this week at work, just because she's awesome.
Well, she's awesome and I'm a crybaby sometimes. I was homesick and whiney one night and she just magically knew I needed a little pick-me-up. This pretty little bouquet was just what my little cubicle needed. It was just what I needed, too -- a reminder of things worth celebrating.
Great friends are worth celebrating.

Reason to celebrate this week No. 2: caliAGchick came back to Ohio, too!
Let me explain something about caliAGchick and I. We live together, we work together, we work out together, we have all the same Ohian friends and we spend literally all our free time in Woo-town together. And you know we have a lot of free time in Woo-town. Moral of the story: we're kind of close.   

But somehow, we haven't seen each other for more than a month. All of the above factors being true, we have gone more than four weeks without having a face-to-face conversation. Needless to say, our reunion was worth celebrating.

Great friends are worth celebrating.

Reason to celebrate this week No. 3: caliAGchick got flowers, too.
She also got this pretty little thing a couple weeks ago:
The flowers were for her birthday. That big sparkly number was for an agreement to spend foreva with her bf. That's worth celebrating. 

Wine bars are worth celebrating.
Birthday desserts and birthday candles are worth celebrating.
Birthday gifts that elecit "Go Pokes!" sqeals are worth celebrating (even when it's a cheer for the wrong Pokes):
 Front row parking on your quarter-century mark is worth celebrating:
Great friends are worth celebrating. Celebrate your friends today. Every day. All the time. They're worth it. And who doesn't love a good excuse to celebrate? :)
