A Not Even Close to Amazing Party!

Good morning! Can you believe it is already the second week of September? My class is going well so far and so enjoyable. We have been able to paint and have do some fun experiments. This week will be all about apples!  We taste them and we even paint with them! The kids love this one!

Last week was supposed to be at the launch party for Karianne’s book. Well, actually, the party happened, but I didn’t. My party, that is. Let me tell you about my day.

First of all, my alarm didn’t go off in the morning. Great way to start the day! I did make it to work just fine, but it’s always a little more stressful to start a day this way.

I was supposed to sign up for a class to take that day, but the person to give me the code to sign up, was off that day. So much for that!

I got home and started getting ready for the party. I baked cookies and set the table. About 3:50, I finally read a text about an auction I had won. I was supposed to pick up the auction by 4:00. Yeah, uh, not happening.

I wanted to print out cute little tags for the boxes the cookies were in. I created them and tried to print them, but, alas, no colored ink. Oh my. My mom to the rescue!

Lauren and I talked and she figured she should be able to make it to the house in time for the party. But when she checked again, we realized we had the wrong time for the party. We were off by an hour and had missed the whole thing. 😦

I was devastated!! I so wanted to party with Karianne! Wah! The day felt like such a failure!

But then I remembered what the book was all about. We are all amazing. Maybe not that particular moment or day, but we are all special. “It’s about grace and forgiveness and learning from mistakes and rejoicing and celebrating in every victory, no matter how small.” So even though I missed the party, I love how my party table turned out. And the snickerdoodles were delicious!

I know we have all had days like this. Let’s give ourselves a little forgiveness and realize just how special we are. Thank you, my friends, for visiting this blog and for continuing to support Lauren and I. Someday’s are harder than others, but we all have amazing-ness inside of us!
