5 Ways to Celebrate TODAY!

International Day of Happiness?!
First Day of Spring?!
The Universe is really gifting us today, guys.

According to my Erin Condren planner (no, I’m not obsessed or anything), today is the International Day of Happiness

– AND –

the First Day of Spring

– AND –




I think not!

How am I going to celebrate?!

How can I possibly give happiness and springtime and Fridays the recognition they deserve?!

And on the SAME DAY?!

Let’s see…

5 Ways to Celebrate TODAY!

Bake something, then eat it.

Make a cake, or a pie, or some muffins. Wear a cute little apron, while you’re at it. Dance around the kitchen and listen to your favorite Spotify playlist. Invite a friend. Invite ten friends. Invite all the woodland creatures in your immediate area.

Make something for someone.

Remember those cakes/pies/muffins we were discussing earlier? Make an extra batch and take them to your grandma. Or your cousin. Or your friendly neighborhood 38-week-pregnant Kelsie, who (as luck would have it!) LOVES baked goods and treats and friendship.

Go for a walk.

I don’t care if it’s 35 degrees or 100 – it’s the FIRST DAY OF SPRING, DAMMIT! And that means I’m going to go for a walk, even if it’s to and from the QuikTrip that lies 15 yards from my front door. Twix bar that I’ve literally been dreaming about for two days, HERE I COME!

Pet some puppies.

Go to a pet shelter, or a pet store, or your creepy neighbor’s backyard. Pet some puppies. Don’t let them bite you, because spending your day in the hospital getting anti-rabies vaccinations doesn’t count as celebrating, in my book (unless there are balloons, which there might be, so… maybe?).

Spring clean!

Maybe I’m a freak (yes), or maybe I’m just “nesting” (yes yes yes), but cleaning and organizing feels GOOD. I don’t care what you think – transforming a stinky dirty messy bathroom into a sparkly pretty organized bathroom is TRANSFORMATIVE TO THE SOUL. If you disagree, just repeat after me: “Heal me, O Clorox Wipes of yore. Show me thine many powers!”

How are you going to celebrate this Friday/International Day of Happiness/First Day of Spring?

I’d love to hear!
