celebration, at long last.

Standard

( festive artwork that was a precursor to the night’s joyful celebration)

seeing this painting upon entering the room

where my dear friend

finally had the chance

to have the wedding she’d always wanted

delayed by two long years of pandemic

i knew it would be a memorable celebration

 that really lived up to the artist’s vision

and then some.

“all great celebrations break away from the mundane.” 

-jessica marie baumgartner

goofing off.

Standard

this is someone else (who is not me)

goofing off to celebrate one holiday,

while actively ignoring the clutter of the other holiday.

how incredibly lucky

that right after i realized it is

‘clutter awareness week’

i found out it is also

‘international goof off week’

so i decided to go all in on the goof off celebration.

i’ve never been one to shy away from honoring a holiday

but i can only spread myself so thin.

happy holidays to those of you who celebrate one or both.

“but i love to feel events overlapping each other, crawling over one another like wet crabs in a basket.”

paczec or paczki?

Standard

which one… which one… which two?…..

Fat Tuesday is here and bakeries and grocery stores area ready!

Paczki Day, also known as Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras, (leading into Lent, for those who celebrate), rolls around every year accompanied by its calorie-heavy treat. One Paczki is actually called a paczek, but you can never have just one. The fried doughnuts are known for their Polish roots. More traditional styles contain fruit fillings but jellies, custards, creams and glazes have made their way into the holiday.

“nobody roots for goliath.” – wilt chamberlain

Standard

in a snow bowl game

with rivalry roots from way back when

that hadn’t been won

by

the university of michigan over the ohio state university

in so many years

at last the wolverines bring a victory home

and with the win

michigan stadium is filled with jubilant fans

spilling out onto the field

and into the very, very happy town of ann arbor.

“you don’t have a real rivalry unless both sides are great teams.”

happy hour.

Standard

 

friends on november 12th celebrating national happy hour day to the fullest.

why limit happiness to just one hour?

note: happy hour began as an event in the military.

it is believed that the term comes from events organized

by a club called the happy hour social for the United States Navy in 1913.

“fair thoughts and happy hours attend on you.”

-william shakespeare
