Celebrate EVERYTHING

I am co-hosting the Love Blog Challenge today. The prompt is "Celebration." Head over to Brita's Introduction Post to see the prompts for every week day for the rest of this month. We'd love to have you join us!

You know what one of my favorite things about being married is? Celebrating everything with my husband.

I am a firm believer in celebrating everything. Nothing is too small.

In fact, in my "New Year - New Marriage" pack, I've included a list of silly holidays to celebrate with your spouse. Think Talk Like a Pirate Day and National Pizza Day. Get your pack right here!

As I talked about last week, it is so important to keep a friendship with your spouse. In fact, I think your spouse should be your best friend. And you can only be best friends if you have fun together. And a great way to have fun together is to celebrate everything together!

So just for fun today, I thought I'd share a list of things you can celebrate with your spouse along with how we've celebrated them. (and if I can motivate myself to edit and upload pictures, I'll wrote some Disney World recaps to link up here this week since the link up is open for 4 days!)

Graduation.

Of course this is a big accomplishment. And we just celebrated a PhD graduation! So we went all out and celebrated in Orlando, Florida doing Disney World and Universal! Of course you don't have to go that big, but both graduation and a Disney trip were a long time coming for us!

First Day of New Job

Again this is another important one to us recently. We celebrated Pearson's first day at Intel with a nice dinner out that night, a trip to REI and a small gift from me.

Holidays

Of course you'll celebrate big holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and birthdays etc. But you should also celebrate the little ones like National Pizza Day (which was Friday) and Talk Like Pirate Day (September 19th) as I mentioned earlier. Did you know today is National Plum Pudding day? True story! There is always a reason to celebrate.

Promotions and Raises

Hopefully I don't need to tell you to celebrate these accomplishments. Don't they just make you so proud as a spouse! We celebrated Pearson's Candidacy with The Melting Pot and his Thesis Defense with The Cheesecake Factory! I can't wait for many more of these!


Other Life Events

You know, friends' engagements and weddings (if you're already married), having kids, going to school, getting a job, retiring. Basically everything I've already listed and then some. Just celebrate everything.

Making it to the Weekend

I said you should celebrate everything, right? It's Friday! You made it! A lot of my friends have weekly traditions of ordering pizza every Friday. I love that! Celebrate it!

Don't forget to download my "New Year - New Marriage" pack to find a bunch of silly holidays to celebrate together!

What do you like to celebrate with your spouse?
