Meaningful Mondays: Special Days

“Never save something for a special occasion. Every day of your life is a special occasion.”

Wear your “good” perfume any day you feel like it. Burn your pretty candles because you want to, you can always buy more. Get dressed up any time you please, even if no one else is. Use your good plates and crystal stemware. Wear your sexy lingerie. Open that $100 bottle of wine. Use the sparkly new eye-shadow you’ve been saving for a party. Have the girls over just because it’s Friday. Drink champagne!

I've decided to follow this advice. I have a beautiful china cabinet full of all of my china and crystal that I never use. So I've decided that I'm going to have some small, intimate dinner parties with a couple of friends where we will actually sit at our formal dining table that looks so pretty but, in the 3 1/2 years we've owned it, has never really been used. We will use my china and crystal and burn those pretty candles. For Easter I even pulled out my pretty cake stand that has been in it's box in the garage for who-knows-how-long.

I can't believe I never used it before! That travel cake thing I always used is functional but pretty much an eyesore on the kitchen counter. From now on, it's my fancy glass cake stand!

Time is precious; don’t waste it waiting for “someday”.

Any day is special if you make it so!
