Techies Day
Not only is today a great day to thank those techies in your life that help you function in the digital world but the purpose of today is also to bring awareness to the technology industry.
20 awesome gadgets and gift ideas for techies!
I adore this website, ThinkGeek

Virus Appreciation Day
I can't think of one virus that I could appreciate, you? The link suggests today would be better named Virus Awareness and Protection Day.  I concur. Instead of appreciating them, as if we have a reason to thank them for their existence, I would rather be aware of them and how to protect oneself from them!

Boyfriends Day
How awesome is your boyfriend? Mine is awesome.  I've had mine for over 20 years! Today is a great day to let your guy know how much you appreciate him and what he brings to your life.  I googled gift ideas and they were all centered on Valentines Day but they could work.  I found some unique ideas if you are in to buying something and some great handmade options as well.

Fill your boyfriends (husband or boyfriend) room with balloons and little notes sticking to the string.
When he gets home he'll see the first note on the ground "One balloon for..."
All of the notes on the balloons start with "every" or "every time you" etc.
Finish the thought with what you love or appreciate.
He will love it!

World Card Making Day
It's the thought that counts. Truly. So be brave, get out some art supplies, and make some cards for the people you love and appreciate!
Here's some tips to help:

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!

Watching my brothers become Uncles - thanks to my oldest redhead - has been one of the best things in my life. It was through their interactions with her from the moment she was born until present day that made me see the men they were growing up to be and what kind of Father's they would be to their own children someday. It takes nothing at all for me to think back to those days when she was an itty-bitty and my brothers - who had no experience with babies - took on soothing her when she cried, changing her diapers, helping feed her, and just snuggling. Mushy gushy heart.

What makes you sentimental today?
