Celebrate the Small Things!

Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly celebration created by VikLit and now hosted by Lexa Cain to celebrate the happenings of the week, however small or large. You can learn all about it and sign up for it here. CelebrateSmallThings_Badge

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?
