Not that posting about books is a bad thing, right? ;)
I'll have more bookish things to write about soon, but today I simply had to share a gem I discovered at our local Hallmark store.
First, can we just take a moment to appreciate this bag? Hallmark is so spot-on with this tagline.
Life is a special occasion.
How awesome would it be if we remembered this every day? And not just as an excuse to eat more dessert and buy more things (which I know I can be guilty of when I take on this mentality...), but as a reason to take that chance, make that memory, and laugh off the stressful days.
Experiences like this past Friday night, when I spent an incredibly fun and awesome evening eating way too much pizza and breadsticks and salad with some coworkers at a pizza parlor, bring this philosophy home. Life truly is a special occasion. :)
Now, let me show you the very special item I purchased...
Isn't it just darling??
Up makes me cry pretty much every time I watch it. The movie has such a great message - one that goes perfectly with the message on that bag, actually. Life is something to be cherished, even after loss. Memories of a life well-lived shouldn't hold us back - they should lift us up to continue our journey with great love and joy.
"Adventure is out there." (And although I'm not a coffee drinker, I'm sure caffeine will somehow make its way "in there" - such a cute idea for a mug!)
Are you ready for an adventure today?
While it appears that the mug is currently not available online, you can learn more about it and find a Hallmark store near you on the Hallmark website.
