Yesterday, Almanzo and I attended a Celebration of Life ceremony over in the beautiful Alexander Valley. It was the third funeral I’ve ever attended and I have to say, out of them all, this ceremony was most true to the definition.
A Celebration of Life.
The setting was absolutely perfect and we honored a great man’s full life in the best manner possible.There were no tears and black dresses in sight—instead, we celebrated with great food, delicious wine and wonderful friends and family. I personally can’t think of a better way to go out than with a big party in wine country, can you?
Above all, yesterday served as a reminder to me about just how short life really is and how it’s so important to live each day to the fullest.
Today I’ve celebrated life by waking up early and taking a three mile walk around the lake with someone I love while listening to a sermon online. The weather is beautiful and I’m thankful to be alive! I’m also excited to work at the yoga studio this afternoon and then go out on a dinner date tonight out near the ocean.
What have you done today to celebrate?
