So, we developed a "Happy 3" lunch and try our best to meet once a week to discuss three small (or sometimes big) things that we both walk away from our get-together and DO.
This week, my "Happy 3" is:
1.) Order a holiday gift from Livy's Hope.
A friend from high school has two beautiful twin girls Hailey and Livy. Livy was born with an illness so her parents started this foundation for her. You can order a customized painting from Hailey, who is beyond talented at the age of seven! Over the Summer, I ordered a painting from Hailey and told her that I write about kids parties themed around "Mermaids & Milk & Cookies." Look what she sent me!
There are also cheap & chic bracelets on sale at Livy's Hope that would make great stocking stuffers. http://www.livyshope.com/. Hailey is creating her own set of notecards with original artwork (including my Mermaid!) that I can't wait to stock up on!
2.) I am going to handcuff myself to a quiet room and finish reading this book. To be inspired is to be alive and this man figured it out.
3.) Organize my photos. I know this sounds like an easy job, but my neighbor is a professional in-home organization expert, and I'm enlisting hired help! Years of photos are in boxes and I can't wait to put them in proper albums and feel lighter. I love that Graphic Image makes ones that you can personalize with titles and dates. http://www.graphicimage.com/.
My to-do list for this weekend was making me feel a little car-sick. At least three things are getting checked off this weekend, which will make heading into next week a much smoother ride.
