Take time to celebrate

Happy Birthday Leona and Joy SocksA couple of years ago I went to a 50th birthday party where the birthday girl rented a hall, hired a band and we had the best time dancing and celebrating and I thought to myself, ‘I want to do that when I turn 50’.

A couple months ago I went to a great wedding and I danced the night away. I could hardly sleep – that was beyond food for my soul.

Today’s my bday – I’m 47 today and I decided I don’t want to wait to be 50 to gather friends and people I’d like to get to know better, to have a party.

Life is precious and I want to celebrate joyfully every milestone and b-day.

I always encourage my clients to stop and celebrate the little things like a courageous conversation, putting up a boundary, getting a new client but lately I haven’t slowed down enough to do that for myself.

SO I’m having a party ☺

Would you come celebrate with me?

We often rush through life and don’t stop – I want my new year to be full, but not so full that I don’t take in those ‘pockets’ of joy.

Good things have been happening to me personally, in my coaching business and Joy Socks is growing almost faster than I can keep up – so I want to STOP and celebrate.

Joy Socks turned one this summer and we decided to throw a party and I wanted it to correspond with my b-day (but soon found out that renting a hall should be booked well in advance and I was a little late.)

So the combined celebration of my blissful aging (a real blessing with my health condition ☺) and Joy Socks youth will be celebrated on November 19 and I would LOVE for you to come. LOVE!

I’ve gathered up some volunteers and leaned into asking for help at every turn and it’s just around the corner. EEK!

I’ve got some happy decorations, polka dotted of course and the playlist set to fun tunes that you can’t help but to dance too. My fave dance instructor is coming to teach us a few new moves to add to the joy. If dancing isn’t your thing there will be plenty of great people to connect with and some yummy appetizers, wine, a silent auction and of course Socks- Joy Socks. (All proceeds go to giving more socks away)

We will be selling designer socks that have been donated for the event for us to sell so all the money can go to help us save 20,000 Soles by the end of 2016. Joy Socks wants to save 10,000 feet from cold feet, boring sock and spark joy for Calgarians in hospitals, shelters and charities. There is no better way to celebrate than giving to others. We will also be hearing from some of the staff that deliver the socks at our donation sites and the difference that they’ve been making in the lives of vulnerable Calgarians.

Come join me!

Take your friends, invite your team – even your kiddos ☺ It would mean the world to me to see you there!
