Celebrate the Small Things!

I took a bit of a breather this week after blogging every day for two weeks with my blog tour. Now, I’m primed and ready to go for the April A to Z Challenge! Celebrations for this week:

  1. The snow is finally melting, and it’s warming up a little!
  2. “Frozen Fever!” (No, I’m not sick. :) ) We went to see the new live-action Cinderella movie from Disney, and at the beginning, there was an animated short with all the main characters from the “Frozen” realm that was just hilarious.
  3. Girl Scout cookies! We bought five boxes, and they were gone in a week.

What other celebrations are going on out there?
