"The Dutchess Who Wasn't" Day
Books penned by Margaret Wolfe Hungerford, aka The Dutchess

Burger Day
A burger doesn't have to be made just from ground beef. Try chicken, turkey, buffalo, veggie patties, what else do you like to make into a burger?
I'm a fan of the burger myself.  Our family likes Red Robin a lot and they have great burgers of all kinds. In fact just thinking about them is making my mouth water. Red Robin...YUMMMMMM.
(You are not going to regret clicking on that link!)

Make your own today using one of these recipes - branch out and try a different kind!

Global Forgiveness Day
Forgiveness is one of the most powerful experiences for both the forgiver and the forgivee.  So on this day of global forgiveness I encourage you to watch these videos about the importance and power of forgiveness. They say all the things I would anyway!
The Science of Happiness - Forgive and Forget
The Science of Happiness - Forgive and Forget | The Phone Call
A Story about Forgiveness
The power of forgiveness
Corrie Ten Boom, "How to Forgive"

Do you need to extend forgiveness today to someone?

Just Because Day
Today is a day to do whatever you want...just because!
Why not make someone's day by treating them just because?!
I love the idea of just because.  It doesn't need to be a birthday or an anniversary or anything like that. You can celebrate people just because!

Let's talk about style. Not current fashion but those fashions we sported back in our younger days. You know those days - when we thought we looked G.O.O.D. *wink* 
In the spirit of the day here's a few photos of my stellar fashion sense back in my day. 
August 1983 - I LOVED this dress, I wore it a lot and I thought I was quite the cutie in it! 
I'm not just outing my fashion sense today but my brother's as well - look at his shorts and socks! Hahaha! And then there's me. I remember this outfit very well - I put a lot of thought into it. I was definately going through a pink phase - you can't see it here obviously but my entire bedroom was pink walls - as in bubblegum pink - along with white wallpaper that had pink hearts on it. This was in July 1986. 
Huh. I just noticed that with the posting of this picture and the two above there's a lot of pink. I must have liked it much more than I thought. To be fair this sweater I'm wearing in September of 1987…


Today I want to celebrate transformation - the work we have each put in day after day, month after month, year after year to become not who we were. Let me say this - there is no shame in who we were because that was the hurt us - the baggage laden us - the angry us. And we've done the work so let's celebrate who we aren't and who we now are!  The song above is all about being transformed - from the choices to let go of pain and find healing. It inspired something called cardboard testimonies which I personally love. A way to share your story in one or two sentences/phrases. I don't know about you but I love not being who I was. I still have work to do but I love looking back and seeing the transformation I've gone through thus far. 

Here's some inspiration - yes, a lot of it is faith based (okay maybe all of it) but if you don't subscribe to a faith that's okay! You still have a cardboard testimony. 


So in case *you* didn't know...I have a wee obsession with the TV show Friends. Nothing that requires an intervention...well at least I don't think so. *wink*

Today's #FRIENDSFriday is all about how well do you, or I, know the show? It's time for a little Friends Trivia!

And in keeping with the trivia focus today here's a clip of one of my most favorite episodes of Friends that features one of the best games of trivia ever!
