Today is a quick celebration post for Saturday. I love to link up with those who find moments to celebrate in the week. Thank you, Ruth Ayers for this community. Find other celebrations here.
First, I celebrate Spring Break. I celebrate waking up to the sun. I celebrate the opportunity for recovery and renewal.
Second, I celebrate TCRWP’s Saturday Reunion in New York City. What a huge celebration of educators and their belief in literature and community.
Third, I celebrate blogging every day in the month of March as a part of the Slice of Life Story Challenge. So many participated. That made the experience rewarding and possible. I celebrate all of the “slicers” who did it! I celebrate those who commented on my blog. I celebrate my colleague Dayna, who leaned in, let go, and let it loose in the world of blogging.
Fourth, I celebrate #digipoetry. I celebrate Margaret Simon and Leigh Anne Eck, who got this idea going. It was a very gentle call. No big expectations. That worked for me. This new fresh space felt like a safe place to start. Join in if you have the urge!
Fifth, I celebrate my new tiny blogging space, playing with writing. I opened it up as a place to just write. It’s small and uncomplicated. Growing gently.
Finally, I celebrate the weekend and all of you: taking a deep breath and celebrating together.
