Mark Your Calendar

from Swoopmedia

We make our plans, but sometimes those plans fall through.  So far 2011 has been full of cancellations, rescheduling and postponing.  But we continue to plan.  Why?  Because it’s worth it!  We love spending time with family, friends and each other.  Even though sickness has prevented many events, dinners and date nights, we still hope for the time when we can once again make plans that actually happen.

When plans fall through are you more apt to reschedule or simply cancel?

Rescheduling certainly takes time and effort.  But it’s the things we value which makes the effort so worth it!  So, if you’re well this week – thank God, and make plans to have some time alone together either in the comfort of your home OR by going out.

As a weekly addition to our Mark Your Calendar posts, we’re going to start including “Fun Dates to Celebrate This Week,” in order to spark ideas for those everyday moments worth celebrating.  Remember, our monthly Here’s To Us Contest is on the 12th of each month where we’ll ask you what special moment worth celebrating stood out to you the previous month.  So read this list and see if any are worth highlighting or celebrating in your schedule.  I’ve added a couple of ideas next to some just to help get us thinking!
