QUOTE OF THE DAY – “Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” — Earl Nightingale

I hope this weekend you can savor your time spent with family and friends. I know we don’t always have them close by so why not send a card? It’s a way to show someone how much you care and that you are thinking of them. The cards I shared today can be made so quickly and are going to result in jaw-on-the-floor moments for those who receive it.

Make it a GREAT weekend my sweet friends! I will have a special blog post on Monday so make plans to join me.
