A Life in Celebration
I live a life in celebration of all good things. I believe in being kind and helping others when I can. Take time to celebrate everyday events and extraordinary occasions!

Mom and Dad:
Have I told you about my dear mom and dad? I celebrate having both of my parents living right in the backyard! I like to joke that I bought one of those little sheds out in front of the Home Depot and that is where they live. That is far from the truth, though! In our sweet little community of Celebration, many of the homes, ours included, have apartments built over the garages. My mom and dad have a nice one bedroom apartment just feet away from the main house. It would be better if they were in a first floor apartment, but we do have a lift chair to aid them in getting up and down.
My dad used to help me with so many of my projects, particularly when it came to power tools. He still loves to get involved, but macular degeneration has taken most of his eyesight. That has not stopped him from helping out. I love this photo of his hands helping with my Christmas Ornament Topiary.
Recently, my dad wanted to help out. The Smart car needed windshield washer fluid. To access the wiper fluid, you need to take this panel off the front of the car. Bless dad’s heart, he got that off and added the fluid. Then he tried the wipers just to make sure it was full and working. UH OH! No spray! He immediately realized what he had done…he had put the windshield washer fluid into the oil. The car was towed to a mechanic, the oil and wiper fluid was drained, flushed and we have a fresh oil change!
You know what, I wouldn’t have it any other way. If dad wasn’t right out back, we couldn’t help each other out, give each other a hug everyday and check in on and look after one another. Do you live close to family? Stop by on Tuesday for a celebration of Valentine’s Tablescapes!!
