We Just Want to Celebrate!

by Sparkle Abbey

What are your 4th of July holiday plans?

Here in the Midwest there will be small town parades, fireworks, and cookouts. We’ll decorate bikes, eat potato salad, and listen to Yankee Doodle Pops. Other parts of the country may celebrate in other ways. But whether you celebrate at the beach or in the backyard, poolside or at the park, it’s a chance to pause to commemorate our country’s Independence Day with family and friends. 

It’s so easy to get caught up in the day to day of our busy lives that sometimes we forget to pause and celebrate. Holidays remind us to do that.

We've had a couple of months of celebrations. There have been birthdays, graduations, dance recitals and weddings. 

Milestones. It’s so important to pause and really celebrate those milestones. To take a moment and thoroughly enjoy them and tuck the memories into the corners of your heart.

Lately we've also had some writing milestones. Our fifth book, Fifty Shades of Greyhound, just came out. Wow. Book Five. Of course, we’re crazy busy and working on the next book and so we have to remind ourselves to pause and celebrate our Book Five milestone. (By the way, yesterday the book hit the Top 10 in Cozy Mysteries on Amazon. We think that requires yet another celebration!)

What about you? What milestones big or small have you had recently? Did you take time to pause and enjoy the moment?

  1. Celebrations are awesome! I celebrate everything: finished first draft, turned in manuscript, turned in revisions, turned in copy edits, book release day...come to think of it, I celebrate a lot. Congrats on book 5!
