This week I am celebrating all of the things that have kept me smiling. My goal all week has been to find lots of happy. I never have to dig deep to do this. But sometimes, I have to ensure that I am noticing.
Wandering through the week, I noticed a lot.
The beautiful mess of making art.
The love notes from my class to our hip hop instructor posted in her studio. So wonderful that our love is loved 🙂
Writers writing and sharing and editing.
The energy of buddy reading.
Enjoying a new book with such intensity that we needed to instantly write notes to the author. Oh please, Bob Shea, more Ballet Cat stories!
A big carpet, a fun game and all of the excitement and cooperation that resulted.
This beautiful honour. Thank you to the C.H.I.L.D. Foundation for this award.
That my family and friends were there to celebrate with me. Here is my daughter with the adorable baby of a very special friend who attended the event on Friday.
Thank you to Ruth Ayres and the #celebratelu community! Being part of a community that regularly shares gratitude and celebrations truly transforms my weeks.
What a beautiful post. You are a cultivator of happiness, Carrie.
Thank you so much. So important to hold on to and hold up the happy!
So much to celebrate Carrie. Congratulations on all you do. Love being in your world every Saturday!
Thank you Julieanne. What a lovely compliment!
Wow! What a beautiful award! As usual, I LOVE seeing your students so engaged and happy!
Thanks Holly. Isn’t it a beautiful award? It is so heavy! Gorgeous roses. I need to figure out a special place to keep it.
I can’t read all that the award says, Carrie, but I can imagine. What a wonderful thing; it’s beautiful. Congratulations to you for that & for all that you do!
Thanks Linda – it is beautiful! It was a big honour.
I look forward to your celebrations every week. You are very special.
Thank you Kimberley. 🙂
Amazing celebrations! I can feel your joy just by looking at your pictures. That positive energy from students is one of the things that I miss the most during the summer. Congratulations on your award as well!
I so agree – I miss it too during the summer. We still have a month of school left.
Congrats on your award. It looks like a lovely evening and the little guy with you daughter – precious! Love this week’s buddy reading pic. Spent part of Sat. afternoon immersed in picture books you recommended that I picked up from my hold shelf at the library. Best treat ever!
I am so pleased that you enjoyed the books Ramona! Thanks for sharing that!
