My Weekend in an Instant // Oct. 5th - 6th



Today is sponsored by the letter M... for Monday! Silly, I know... but for some reason I woke up today and was missing the days when I was a kid and my weekday mornings started with Sesame Street, and a particular letter that sponsored the day. Sometimes it's nice to take a moment, stepping back from the "manic monday" and the crazy week ahead, to reminisce on how you got to where you are today.  We all have our on special journey, Sesame Street was a part of mine, but sometimes we get so caught up in the future, that we forget to enjoy the present.  I know some people think you shouldn't look back, that the past should remain in the past, but I am a firm believer that you can't truly know where your going without understanding how you got where you are, and appreciating where you came from and all you have been through (good and bad).

Each Monday I share with you, "My Weekend in an Instant"... for no reason other, that it's a nice way, for me, to look back at my weekend and appreciate all the little things, all the small, insignificant to most, moments that made my weekend sparkle.  I only hope that I inspire you to do the same.
