Celebrate the little moments in life


This post is sponsored by Ava Grace Wine but all opinions are my own.

Life is filled with so many twists and turns it’s important to celebrate the little moments in life. It’s the little things in life that tend to hold the best memories. In collaboration with AVA Grace Wine I'm sharing how to make everyday moments a memory worth popping the cork for and celebrating.

Wine tends to bring people together that way. Whenever I open a new bottle of wine, I’m celebrating a special occasion, but now I realize that there doesn’t have to be an occasion to celebrate. As we approach, the holiday season think about the quality time you spend with family and friends. Whether you are hosting a holiday party or prepping Thanksgiving dinner think about cherishing those moments of tranquility. The dinner table becomes an open forum for all types of good conversation. A good glass of rose can make any memory sweeter. So this holiday season I challenge you to put the phones away. Bring out the wine and cheese. Laugh and have good conversation. Celebrate the moment. End the evening with a group photo to capture the great night of fun you had.

This quote by Shauna Niequist sums up why we should pause and let life unfold gracefully this holiday season.

Life is a collection of a million, billion moments, tiny little moments and choices, like a handful of luminous, glowing pearls. It takes so much time, and so much work, and those beads and moments are so small, and so much less fabulous and dramatic than the movies.But this is what I’m finding, in glimpses and flashes: this is it. This is it, in the best possible way. That thing I’m waiting for, that adventure, that move-score-worthy experience unfolding gracefully. This is it. Normal, daily life ticking by on our streets and sidewalks, in our houses and apartments, in our beds and at our dinner tables, in our dreams and prayers and fights and secrets – this pedestrian life is the most precious thing any of us will ever experience.
